EDITORS’ NOTES

Going into her seventh album, Sia Furler wanted to try “an experiment.” She would record self-written tracks already pitched to—but overlooked by—A-listers. “I feel like they’re hits, but nobody wanted them,” she said. She was right. This Is Acting dives headfirst into pop’s waters, but its bold and beguiling songs retain their author’s earthy edge. Sia’s cathartic voice is, as usual, the star—“Alive” and “House on Fire” pulverize all before them, the big-night-out anthem “Cheap Thrills” is a ton of fun, and “Reaper” (a Kanye West cowrite) is the sort of midtempo empowerment jam only she can nail so triumphantly.

THIS IS ACTING🙌🏼

Very similar feel to 1000 forms of fear, but Sia has now created a very iconic and original look that sets her apart from other pop artists.
Outstanding vocals on these two powerhouse tracks she's released so far, excited to hear the rest!

Incredible album, Real talent

The real mastermind behind some of the ‘top’ charting pop stars. For an experiment as Sia herself calls it, this is incredibly successful. Her vocals and songwriting skills are fantastic. One of the best albums I’ve heard in a while & she can actually sing live. Shame Rihanna had to release on the same day but Sia wins on quality.
