Tunes for Tuesday: Sia

Sia is releasing an album next month made up solely of songs she wrote for other artists that they ultimately rejected. Though many know Sia for her large wigs and arty videos, but the fact is that she was famous already in the songwriter circles that support pop artists from Kelly Clarkson to Britney Spears. I first discovered her at tend of the last decade when I discovered Zero 7 (she was the lead female vocalist.) Since then her unlikely rise to superstardom has been a joy to watch.

Also a joy? These songs, which other artists so foolishly turned down.

Below, two more tracks from the forthcoming album, This Is Acting.

And here’s Bird Set Free, which she performed on SNL recently. Please excuse the American psycho introducing her.
