Adelaide-born Sia is gearing up to release new music next week, sharing the news her new song “Together” will be released soon.
Taking to social media earlier today, Sia revealed that the track will be hitting streaming services from Wednesday, May 20th, and serves as the first single from her upcoming film, Music.

First announced back in 2014, Music has been in the works for some time, with the likes of Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr, and longtime collaborator Maddie Ziegler all set to appear in the finished product.
Planned for release in September, “Together” will serve as the first single from the film, though its existence has been known for some time. In fact, during an interview with Rolling Stone in 2018, writer Hillel Aron described the track as being “a cheerful song that matches [Sia’s] personality much more than, say, ‘Chandelier’.”
“The ‘Together’ scene [from Music], to be shot in one take, features the principal characters and a half-dozen kids decked out in brightly painted jumpsuits dancing around a circle of chairs, arranged like a 12-step meeting,” Aron wrote in the piece.
“It’s a long, complicated shot, a whirl of color, hugs and smiles, and if it is the ending of the film, it will be an exceedingly happy one.”
While Sia’s fans are eagerly counting down the days until the track arrives, this isn’t the first piece of new music they’ve received from the Aussie singer this year. While “Original” was released from the Doolittle soundtrack in January, earlier this month saw the release of “Saved My Life”.
Last month though saw Sia joining in on the Tiger King craze, sharing the satirical “Joe Exotic (Diva Cut”, performed by Ziegler and Tonya Brewer, and featuring an appearance from the Australian artist during the minute-long recording.
