“Alive” is the name of the new track that Sia and Adele (along with Tobias Jesso Jr) wrote together, and the title of this song couldn’t be more fitting. We’ve been waiting for Adele to release new music since her last album back in 2011, “21.” And based off the sounds of this song, it was well worth the wait.
This song is about conquering life’s toughest obstacles with the first verse’s lyrics reading as, “I was born in a thunderstorm/I grew up overnight/I played alone/I played on my own/I survived.” Sia shared with RTV Slovenija at the Venice Film Festival how initially this song was written about Adele’s life.
Powerful stuff, to say the least. Sia and Adele are the queens of raw, heartfelt music, so it’s safe to say “Alive” will give you all the feels. Grab a box of tissues and listen to the song for yourself below!
