Sia released her latest album ‘This Is Acting’ in January. It consists of songs Sia originally wrote for – but saw rejected by – other artists including BeyoncĂ©, Adele, Rihanna, Demi Lovato and Katy Perry. The album has peaked so far at Number Three in the UK and Number Four in the US.

The album’s latest single ‘Cheap Thrills’ has become her biggest ever hit on the UK’s Official Singles Chart, peaking at Number Two. Meanwhile, Sia has recently written a song for Blondie‘s new album which Debbie Harry has described as “amazing”.
