EARLIER // NOVEMBER 17, 2016:
Sia crafted yet another powerful and anthemic score, because she can.
The impeccably talented singer-songwriter is pioneering original music for the soundtrack to the Australian-American-British film Lion (out Nov. 25), which stars British actor Dev Patel as a man in search of his Indian birth family 25 years after being adopted by an Australian family.
Sia enlisted frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin for the track, who produced most of the songs featured on Sia's 2010 album We Are Born and this year's chart-topping record This Is Acting.
In "Never Give Up," there's no shortage of powerful inspirational messages: "I'm haunted by the distant past
/ Called to the skies but she was she overcast / But I won't never give up," she sings over a festive Bollywood background. "And I won't let you get me down / I'll keep gettin' up when I hit the ground / Oh, never give up, no."
