Sia has just released a new single called Alive, fresh from her upcoming album This Is Acting which is slated for a November release. According to RTV Slovenija, Sia explained that she co-wrote the song with Adele and Tobias Jesso Jr but Adele had rejected it at the last minute.

"It's about Adele's life, so I now sing a song from Adele's perspective," Sia said. "This is the first song from this new project. I'm calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn't go into it thinking, 'This is something I would say'. It's more like play-acting. It's fun," she added.

After listening to the vocal powerhouse croon the words "I took and I took and I took what you gave/ But you never noticed that I was in pain," we're definitely going to download it on iTunes. And this is how you kick start your weekend.
