Sia released an acoustic EP today titled Sia Spotify Sessions.
Sia is breathing new life into her No. 1 album This Is Acting by re-imaginging the songs sans polished production, opting for a piano and guitar instead. The stripped EP is exclusive to Spotify and features six songs in total, four from her most recent album, including “Bird Set Free,” “Broken Glass,” “Space Between” and “Alive,” as well as two off her previous record 1000 Forms Of Fear – “Elastic Heart,” and “Chandelier.”
Sia turns embraces her imperfections in the Spotify Session, creating an intimate space for the songs to transform from the pop tunes they were destined to be into something intimate and original – voice cracks and all. Rihanna and Adele passed on a couple of these, but after hearing this new EP, it's hard to imagine anyone other than Sia singing them. It all makes sense now.
Sia also released a Cheap Thrills Remix EP today as well. It bundles 7 remixes of her current single by Hex Cougar, Le Youth, RAC, Nomero, Sted-E & Hybrid Heights, Cyril Hahn, and John J-C Carr.
