Sia has announced Music – Songs From and Inspired By the Motion Picture, a new album out February 12th via Monkey Puzzle/Atlantic.
Ahead of the release, the Australian singer dropped the upbeat “Hey Boy,” accompanied by a lyric video featuring smiling food faces — including donut eyes and chocolate grins.
The album was written for and inspired by Music, Sia’s upcoming directorial debut out February 2021. Co-written by Dallas Clayton, the film is based on a short story Sia wrote in 2007.
The teaser for the film features Kate Hudson as Zu, a newly sober drug dealer who becomes the guardian of her autistic half-sister Music (Maddie Ziegler) with guidance from her neighbor (Leslie Odom, Jr.). Ziegler — a dancer and actress set to appear in the upcoming West Side Story — previously starred in Sia’s videos for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.“
“Hey Boy” follows the singles “Together” — co-written and produced by Jack Antonoff — and “Courage to Change.” Music – Songs From and Inspired By the Motion Picture follows her 2017 Christmas album Everyday Is Christmas and 2016’s This Is Acting.
