“I won’t waste my life being typical / Imma be original, even when it’s difficult,” Sia sings on the chorus. “And I won’t change myself when they tell me ‘no’ / Imma be original.”
Dolittle, a new spin on the classic story of the doctor who can speak to animals, arrives in theaters January 17th.
“Original” marks Sia’s first new solo song since 2019’s “Out There,” a collaboration with Hans Zimmer that served as the theme song for the BBC’s nature documentary One Planet, Seven Worlds.
While Sia hasn’t released an album of new, non-Christmas material since 2016’s This Is Acting, the singer has kept busy in recent years with her LSD collaboration with Diplo and Labrinth as well as her steady soundtrack work: In the past four years since This Is Acting, Sia has contributed new songs to films like Lion (“Never Give Up“), Wonder Woman (“To Be Human“), My Little Pony: The Movie (“Rainbow”), Fifty Shades Darker (“Helium”), At The Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal (“I’m Still Here“) and Dumplin’ (“Here I Am” with Dolly Parton), as well as songs penned for Natalie Portman’s character in Vox Lux.
