Adele's official return to music has arrived—just don't expect to hear her voice.
While the ten time Grammy Award winner prepares for the debut of her third studio album, she spared some time to pen a brand new hit single with Sia and lyricist Tobias Jesso Jr. called "Alive!" The song will be featured on the wigged star's next album, This Is Acting, while an official music video is still in the works.
After one full play of the track, we're hooked. The song undeniably sounds like it was birthed right from Sia's fingertips. The lyrics paint the tale of a self-proclaimed survivor who has overcome deep mysterious strife. Lines like "I had made every single mistake that you could ever possibly make. I took and I took and I took what you gave, but you never noticed that I was in pain" are reminiscent of her past chart-toppers like "Elastic Heart" and "Chandelier."
It doesn't hurt that the queen of heartbreak herself, Adele, joined the surprise team—it was bound to be golden from the beginning.
