“It’s about Adele’s life, so I now sing a song from Adele’s perspective. This is the first song from this new project. I’m calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn’t go into it thinking, ‘This is something I would say’. It’s more like play-acting. It’s fun!”

Alive was written alongside both Adele and Tobias Jesso Jr. Listen below and scroll down for a playlist of other songs that Sia has written for other people.
