Hidden Gem: Sia “Unstoppable”

Sia is back…with the infectious confidence and strut of a bold lion. 2014’s 1000 Forms of Fear is her best work yet; early indications This Is Acting her 2016 album extends her winning streak.

In Spin Sia said “I have two [more records] completed and ready to go.” Then, her cryptic yet revealing closer: “I’d like 2015 to look like it’s just been fucked.” hah! Outstanding. It didn’t quite happen like that….change the 2015 to 2016.

Greg Kurstin was the secret weapon on 1000 Forms of Fear. (If you dig Adele’s Hello that’s him too as a co-writer and producer). And he’s back on This Is Acting (though not on this track). Unstoppable is classic Sia…a bombastic emphatic earworm:
