Bird Set Free


imageBird Set Free

"Bird Set Free" is a song recorded by Sia for her seventh studio album This Is Acting (2016).

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Sia said that the song was written for Pitch Perfect 2 soundtrack, but they rejected it in favour of "Flashlight". Afterwards she pitched it to Rihanna, who rejected it, then to Adele, who initially recorded it but later decided to let Furler keep it.

The song "Bird Set Free" is written in the key of F minor.

Rolling Stone said the song is "liberating". In a review of the song's parent album This Is Acting, Kathy Iandolf of Idolator wrote "This album is dark, indicated by the lead single 'Alive,' but also by the opener 'Bird Set Free,' where Sia takes a solemn vow to emotional liberation amidst strong piano keys." Alex McCown of The A.V. Club called it the "best female empowerment sing-along Katy Perry never wrote." Calling the song a "ginormo self-empowerment anthem", Hugh Montgomory of The Independent wrote "Sia produces something more complex, battle-cries from a volatile soul."

Sia performed "Bird Set Free" and "Alive" on the November 7, 2015 episode of Saturday Night Live.

"Bird Set Free" was featured over the end credits of the horror film The Shallows.

Big Girls Cry


imageBig Girls Cry

"Big Girls Cry" is a single by Australian singer-songwriter Sia from her sixth studio album 1000 Forms of Fear (2014). The single was not released internationally; it was only released in Australia and some parts of Europe. It charted in Belgium and hit the top 40 in Australia and France.

Electronic duo Odesza released a "choppy, chillwave" remix of "Big Girls Cry" on 5 December 2014. On 15 October 2014, Sia performed "Big Girls Cry" at The Recording Academy. On 2 April 2015, "Big Girls Cry" was released as the third single in the United Kingdom. Sia performed "Big Girls Cry" live on Australian television show, Sunrise on 21 April 2015.

On 2 April 2015, a video for the song was released on Sia's Vevo YouTube channel. The video features Maddie Ziegler in her trademark flesh-coloured leotard and blonde Sia bob facing the camera, in front of a black background, contorting her face and using her hands to express a slew of emotions. At one point a pair of hands come into the frame (shown in behind-the-scenes footage to be Sia's own hands) manipulating Ziegler's face and covering her mouth, they appear to lift Ziegler by the throat into the air until only her kicking feet are shown, then Ziegler drops back into the frame to resume her emotive facial contortions. The single shot video with various lighting and a plain black background is comparable to Lorde's Tennis Court.

Sia revealed, in a behind-the-scenes video for "Elastic Heart", that she would be making a trilogy of videos with Ziegler. As in the first two videos in the series ("Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart"), the clip for "Big Girls Cry" was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. As of February 2016, the video had received more than 100 million views.
