Sia announces new studio album 'This Is Acting'

The dust hasn't even settled from Sia's monstrous 2014 hit album 1000 Forms of Fear, but she revealed to NME that she has her next one already ready to go. It's called This Is Acting, and she calls it 'much more pop" than its predecessor. Sia also reveals 1000 Forms of Fear was released mostly to satisfy a record contract.

Claiming that she only released ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’ to get out of a record deal, Sia said: “Basically, I put this out to get out of my publishing deal.

”I was planning to be a pop song writer for other artists. But my publishing deal was as an artist so I had to put one more album out. I didn’t want to get famous so I kept all the songs I wanted and had a lot of fun making it.”

However, the success of the album has spurred her on to make more music. “I’m super productive. I have a full album ready to go and it’s much more pop,” she revealed. “I’m calling it ‘This Is Acting’ because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn’t go in thinking ‘this is something I would say’. It’s more like play-acting. It’s fun.”

She also mentions she may tour again for the upcoming record. REJOICE!
