As we speak, Maddie Ziegler is being fitted for another platinum-blonde wig and warming up her face muscles so she doesn't get a cramp contorting her eyebrows. This can only mean one thing: new Sia single.
Like pretty much all of the artist's other songs, "Alive" is about being sad but finding the strength to be less sad, a theme one could also apply to most of co-writer Adele's work.
"It's about Adele's life, so I now sing a song from Adele's perspective," Sia said in a recent interview with NME. "This is the first song from this new project. I'm calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn't go into it thinking, 'This is something I would say'. It's more like play-acting. It's fun."
And inevitably, we'll get a video of Dance Moms Maddie pretending to be Sia pretending to be Adele. So meta. Listen below.
