Sia has a brand new Christmas album, with not one traditional carol to be found.
If you needed more proof of Sia's talent, get ready for her brand new Christmas album. On 17 November, Everyday is Christmas will be released to the world bringing joyous tidings and much merriment. But make no mistake, this is not a typical Christmas album featuring Winter Wonderland and O Holy Night. Leave that to Mariah. Rather, Sia has written ten original songs inspired by the holidays. And it's wonderful. Her songwriting, production and her execution is first class. Sia has managed to create a sound that is deliciously classic, nostalgic and familiar - all the things you want at Christmas time. With upbeat happy vibes to brooding ballads, Sia, along with producer Greg Kurstin have nailed every track. Kurstin told Entertainment Weekly, "What really blows my mind is just that she wrote these new Christmas stories, in a way and it's kind of amazing that she did that." He's right. Sia's melodies, chord progressions, themes and tone are right on the money. Everyday is Christmas is as olde worlde as it is modern and up to date. Exactly what a Christmas album should be. Stand out tracks are Sunshine, Everyday is Christmas, and the lovely and romantic Under the Mistletoe. Also, remember Sia is coming to town for her Nostalgic For The [Christmas!] Present tour which was described as "creatively captivating” by Billboard. Hop to it, then.
