Sia has just released a music video for her massive ballad "Alive," and, not surprisingly, it's epic.
Once again, the artist has teamed up with her usual collaborator, David Askill (who directed "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart"), and uses a bob-wig-wearing young person as her on camera-surrogate.
However, gone is Maddie Ziegler as her muse, and in place is a mini-martial arts expert, donning a half-black, half-blonde weave, and ferociously demonstrating her (or his!) karate skills in the middle of an abandoned warehouse.
While we don't get Maddie's sharp and shattering choreography, watching this tyke air-kick and silently roar against Sia's cracking, raspy vocals is just as stirring.
Just this week, Sia released her newest track "Bird Set Free,"—another single from her upcoming LP This Is Acting, due out in January 2016.
