Sia has gifted us “Bird Set Free”, the second single off next year’s This Is Acting, and yet another powerful piano-driven ballad that uses all the nuance and depth of her vocals to stamp a firm message of confidence and self-acceptance. “I don’t care if I sing off-key, I found myself in my melodies”, Sia sings against a heady drum pattern layered over an urgent piano piece.
As with all songs on This Is Acting, Sia takes a piece she originally wrote for another artist (in this case, Adele) and tackles it herself, bringing out all the intended emotion with her stunning and rather intense performance. Listen below.
This Is Acting will be released early 2016
