Sia Shares New Single ‘Gimme Love’: Listen
Sia has released a new single, Gimme Love, her first track in two years. It’s the first taster of her new album, Reasonable Woman, which will be released next spring by Atlantic Records.
Reasonable Woman will be Sia’s first solo pop album since 2016’s This Is Acting, which was mostly made up of songs she had originally written for artists including Rihanna and Adele. In 2021, the Australian singer released the soundtrack to Music, a musical drama film that she co-wrote and directed.
Recently Unstoppable (from This Is Acting and originally written for Shakira) received a TikTok renaissance, while at the beginning of the year Snowman (taken from her Christmas album Every Day Is Christmas) reached a brand new peak on the Official Singles Chart (Number 28), more than three years after its initial release.
Last week Sia was interviewed on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music Beats 1 podcast, in which she described getting over a creative slump, “The truth is that I had just been every now and again writing a song here or there for the last six, seven years… I got divorced and that really threw me for a loop. That was such a dark time that I was in bed for three years, really, really severely depressed. And so I couldn’t really do anything for that period of time.
“It was really hard to get me out of bed,” revealed the singer. “And then finally, it just turned out we had enough songs to make an album, enough good ones. So I just rely on my management to tell me when we’ve got enough good ones because I don’t really… I can tell when I think one is particularly good, I think I can tell, but they tell me when we’ve got 11 or 12 or 13 enough good ones, real good ones.”
