Why Sia Decided to Keep ‘Chandelier’ for Herself


Sia has worked with just about every pop icon from Katy Perry and Britney Spears to even Beyoncé and Celine Dion, not to mention countless others, and now the songstress is releasing her own new music – somewhat by accident!

The Australian hit maker released new solo track “Chandelier,” her first new solo music since 2010’s We Are Born, and reveals exclusively to On Air with Ryan Seacrest the story behind the  new track.

“My friend Jesse Shatkin and I were jamming in the studio –  I was playing piano and him on the marimba – and this gem popped out,” says Sia.

“He produced it up and then I plunked the lyrics on top, next, I usually think, ‘Oh this would work for Rihanna, or this would be a good one for B or Katy.’ But this time I was like, ‘Uh oh I think I just wrote a full blown pop song for myself by accident!'”
