On 3 November 2015, Sia releases her second single, "Bird Set Free" from her seventh album, "This Is Acting". After keeping the release date of "This Is Acting" a mystery, Sia finally revealed the date which will be on 29 January next year as well as the album's cover image. Should you try to relate the song to Sia, you might find the story a little bit odd for her. "Bird Set Free" was actually written in collaboration with Adele. In fact, the song was originally intended for Adele's latest studio album "25" but the song did not make it onto the final song list. Hence, Sia included the song into her own album instead.


Well, that changes the story entirely and the song is literally about Adele! Does it make sense to you? The song was about Adele who suffered from a vocal cord haemorrhage due to a benign polyp and she had to cancel part of her shows in order to undergo laser microsurgery back in 2011. Although her surgery was a success, she was told not to speak for two months. Also, deep in her heart, she told herself that no matter what happened to her voice, she would never give up singing. She then returned to the stage at the Grammys in 2012 and performed "Rolling In The Deep". What do you think of "Bird Set Free"? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Till then, au revoir! :)


Bird Set Free lyrics

Clipped wings
I was a broken thing
Had a voice
Had a voice but I could not sing...
You would wind me down
I struggled on the ground
So lost, the line had been crossed
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
You held me down
I struggle to fly now

But there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die

I'm not gon' care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me

I'll shout it out like a bird set free!
I'll shout it out like a bird set free!
I'll shout it out like a bird set free!

Now I fly, hit the high notes
I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight
You held me down
But I fought back loud

But there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die

I'm not gon' care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me

I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
