Sia recently revealed that she is collaborating with FKA Twigs. She told Zane Lowe on Beats 1, “I’m going to write with (FKA) Twigs. I don’t normally write with artists, it just makes it harder and takes longer for me. It’s easier for me to write the songs and just pitch them.

“I think Twigs is really interesting and I want to work with her,” she continued. “We’re going to get some crazy choruses.”
