Singer makes first Australian TV appearance in five years

‘Chandelier’

‘Big Girls Cry’

Both tracks are taken from Sia’s most recent album ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’, which was released last year. Speaking to NME in February, the singer confirmed that she has finished work on a new studio album, titled ‘This Is Acting’, and claimed that she only released ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’, her sixth LP, to get out of a record deal.

“I was planning to be a pop song writer for other artists. But my publishing deal was as an artist so I had to put one more album out. I didn’t want to get famous so I kept all the songs I wanted and had a lot of fun making it.”

However, the success of the album has spurred her on to make more music. “I’m super productive. I have a full album ready to go and it’s much more pop,” she revealed. “I’m calling it ‘This Is Acting’ because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn’t go in thinking ‘this is something I would say’. It’s more like play-acting. It’s fun.”
