Alright, we’ve got two huge announcements, so you might want to take a seat for this. For starters, Sia is back with new music. Deep breaths. So, this one’s titled ‘Together’ and it marks her third fresh release in 2020. Now, our second piece of good news is that this song features in Sia’s upcoming film, ‘Music’.
Yup, you read that right. The movie has been in the works for a whopping 6 years. It was first announced at the 2015 Venice Film Festival. ‘Music’ also has quite the star cast, from Kate Hudson to the Hamilton star, Leslie Odom Jr. to Maddie Ziegler – it’s just a huge affair. The film is set to release this September. And interestingly enough, for Sia, it’s her debut project. This is the very first time she’s dabbled in a bit of directing. In fact, she even co-wrote and co-produced this film.
Now, we know you’re curious about the plot. But as expected, there’s barely much detail on it. So, here are the crumbs we’ve found: The story is about an autistic teenager (Ziegler), who is cared for by her sober, drug-dealing sister (Hudson). That’s all that’s out there right now.
What the Song has to Offer
Now, back to the song. ‘Together’ is set to drop on May 20th. In fact, the writer, Hillel Aron explained that this was “a cheerful song that matches [Sia’s] personality much more than, say, ‘Chandelier’”.
“The ‘Together’ scene [from Music], to be shot in one take, features the principal characters and a half-dozen kids decked out in brightly painted jumpsuits dancing around a circle of chairs, arranged like a 12-step meeting,” Aron added.
Sia did mention that she’d be putting out a whole album this year, but considering there’s been no further news on this, it’ll possibly come out only in the latter half of the year. ‘Together’ hasn’t been her only single this year. Back in January, she put out a track titled, ‘Original’ for the ‘Doolittle’ soundtrack.
And yet, it’s exciting to know that now, we have not one but two treats on the platter.
