Sia dropped the second single from her directorial debut Music on Thursday (Sept. 24) and the soaring “Courage to Change” is exactly the anthem of courage we need right now.
“You’re not alone in all this/ You’re not alone I promise/ Standing together we can do anything/ You’re not alone in all this/ You’re not alone I promise/ Standing together we can do anything,” she sings on the track, seeking a ray of light in the darkness.
“The only thing that remains constant is change. Now more than ever we need to pull together to fight for humanity, social justice, equality & so much more. It’s time for real change,” reads the YouTube description of the song. The track ponders what legacy we leave behind and the desire to live a life of purpose and meaning amid the deluge of horrible news, rising to a heart-swelling that asks, “Have I the courage to change today?”
Back in May, Sia shared the first single from the movie, the uplifting “Together,” which was accompanied by a colorful video starring her frequent collaborator dance Maddie Ziegler.
At press time there was no confirmed release date for Music, which was announced at the Venice Film Festival in 2015 and stars Kate Hudson, Ziegler, and Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr.
