She’s the go-to songwriter for some of today’s biggest pop stars including, Britney Spears (Perfume), Rihanna (Diamonds), Katy Perry (Double Rainbow), Beyoncé (Pretty Hurts) just to name a few. But this time around the voice behind hits like “Titanium” by David Guetta and Grammy nominated “Wild Ones” by Flo Rida takes centre stage with her new single.
Just as she made Rihanna shine bright with “Diamonds”, Australian singer/songwriter Sia is a sparkling bright songstress with “Chandelier” a soaring pop-gem which previews whats to come in her upcoming album. She really ticks all the boxes for a great song here; her vocals are superb and just takes the song to another level as she reaches for the sky in the chorus, the lyrics about a bender of night/day are easily relatable to anyone who’s ever let loose and producers Greg Kurstin and Jesse Shatkin have come up with current – yet – fresh sound which should get a lot play on the radio and clubs.
It would have fitted right in with The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack and Rihanna or Beyonce’s #1 hits, but I for one am delighted that Sia has decided to keep some of her amazing work for herself and has a whole album of them coming up! #download
“I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist
Like it doesn’t exist
I’m gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier”
