Rolling Stone writes about THIS IS ACTING’s first single “[‘Alive’ is] a devastating, electrifying vocal performance.” Billboard describes the song as “another full-throated, unfettered performance from pop’s most iconoclastic star.” NPR declares “Alive” “a soaring pop anthem,” and USA Today calls it “a coming-of-age anthem.”
In addition, Sia recently released her Alive Remixes EP featuring tracks from Maya Jane Coles, AFSHeeN, Boehm, Cahill and Plastic Plates. The Plastic Plates remix has been climbing the HypeMachine charts, peaking at #2 on the Popular chart.
The video for “Alive” has enjoyed millions of views and stars 9 year old Japanese child actress/dancer Mahiro Takano. The video was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill, the same creative team behind the videos for “Chandelier,” “Elastic Heart” and “Big Girls Cry.” “Chandelier” crossed the 1 billion views last month.
In addition to Jesse Shatkin who produced “Alive,” Sia also worked with longtime collaborator/producer Greg Kurstin on THIS IS ACTING. “Alive,” the album’s first single was written by Sia, Adele and Tobias Jesso, Jr. and was produced by Jesse Shatkin, who also co-wrote and co-produced Sia’s massive four-time Grammy nominated “Chandelier.”
Sia released her #1 charting, critically-acclaimed, and gold-certified album 1000 FORMS OF FEAR (Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records) last year in July, which features her massive breakthrough singles “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.” The groundbreaking video for “Chandelier” has enjoyed an unprecedented 1 billion views and its follow-up video “Elastic Heart” with over 475 million views.
