'Together': Sia drops colorful video from 'Music' featuring Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr and Maddie Ziegler
The song is off the singer's upcoming album 'Music' and will feature on the soundtrack of her directorial debut in the same name
Sia has dropped 'Together', the first single from her upcoming album and motion picture, 'Music', along with a colorful music video. The pop star's directorial debut is set to feature Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr, and Maddie Ziegler in addition to 10 original songs for the soundtrack, all written by Sia herself.
'Together' was co-written and produced by Jack Antonoff, the lead singer of indie-pop band Bleachers and a guitarist and drummer in the indie rock band Fun, who is also currently involved in Lorde's upcoming project. Sia's new music video, awash with bright, cheerful colors, features all three cast members dressed in cloud and rainbow-themed outfits dancing along with a troupe of children.
The video is a one-take shot and sees Ziegler lead the highly energetic dance number in a technicolor room before engaging in a spirited game of musical chairs. 'Together' is an extremely upbeat song and video and gives fans a taste into what to expect from Sia's upcoming joint album and movie venture.
The screenplay for 'Music' was co-written with children’s author and illustrator Dallas Clayton and is based on a short story written by Sia in 2007. It follows Zu played by Hudson, a woman trying to figure out her place in the world. Just as she finds herself sober, she is put in an unfamiliar situation that requires her to be the sole guardian to Music, her half-sister, played by Ziegler, who is a young girl on the autism spectrum.
In a press release for the film, it was stated that "The film explores two of Sia’s favorite themes — finding your voice and what it means to create family." Sia herself is a new mother, having adopted two boys who were aging out of foster care last year and has had quite a personal journey with trying to find her own voice and grow her family.
'Music', the movie, is set to premiere in September this year, but there is no official release date on the album.
Prior to 'Music', Sia collaborated with BTS on a second version of their single 'ON'. Last year she participated in the project LSD in collaboration with Diplo and Labrinth and together they released the album 'Labrinth, Sia & Diplo Present … LSD.'
