A majority of the music videos accompanying Sia’s 1000 Forms of Fear spotlighted dance wunderkind Maddie Ziegler dressed in the pop star’s signature wig, specifically the ones for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart”. The video for Sia’s latest single, “Alive”, casts a similarly young face as its main character, this time an industrious martial arts virtuoso who looks like she could knock anyone’s lights out with even the tiniest kick. She’s a badass, hands down.
“Alive”, which was originally co-written with Adele and Tobias Jesso Jr. for Adele’s 25, will appear on Sia’s forthcoming This Is Acting, due out on January 29th via RCA. For more of the LP, check out the recently unveiled song “Birds Set Free”.
