Sia Kate Isobelle Furler (born December 18, 1975), referred to mononymously as Sia (/ˈsiːə/), is an Australian singer and songwriter. She started her career as a singer in the local Adelaide acid jazz band Crisp in the mid-1990s and eventually rose to prominence as a solo vocalist and songwriter for other pop artists, including Adele, Beyoncé and Rihanna.
Sia co-wrote a song with Adele and Tobias Jesso Jr. for Adele’s third studio album 25, titled “Alive.” The song, however, was ultimately cut from the album and subsequently re-recorded by Sia as the lead single for her seventh studio album, This Is Acting. It was released on September 24, 2015. Sia later confirmed that she and Adele had written three songs total for Adele’s new album; however, all three were cut, with Adele recording the vocals for two of them — “Alive” and “Bird Set Free,” both of which were re-recorded by Sia for This Is Acting. Sia wrote “Bird Set Free” with Greg Kurstin, who co-wrote three tracks on 25.
