Sia – “Reaper” (Co-Written & Co-Prod. Kanye West)
It’s pretty incredible how Australian behind-the-scenes songwriter turned artsy-pop sensation Sia has managed to have every single from her upcoming album This Is Acting be stellar. This is her fifth single — following “Bird Set Free,” “Alive,” “One Million Bullets,” and “Cheap Thrills” — and they’ve all been superb. Tapping Kanye West to co-produce and co-write her latest gem “Reaper,” Sia scales back from the grandiose, beat-infused pop of her previous releases, employing more indie pop sensibilities with Ye’s help. A deep bassline with some digital blips and emphatic claps surround Sia’s harrowing refrain “Don’t come for me today.” Too hyped for this album. Check it out below.
This Is Acting is out 1/29 on Inertia/Monkey Puzzle/RCA.
