Sia's had quite the busy 2018 in terms of professional endeavors! She kicked it off having just released her critically acclaimed holiday album 'Everyday Is Christmas' the previous November which also got a re-release this year with some new songs.
Her discography gained some new additions in May with the collaborative super-group project 'LSD' also featuring musicians Labrinth and Diplo. Their partnership culminated in the release of 4 singles and the 'Mountains' EP. According to Rolling Stone, Sia revealed to the publication that the group will be releasing a debut album sometime soon. Collaborator Labrinth says of the project:
We dress up in crazy outfits, mess around with Sgt. Pepper’s-esque visuals; we’ve created animations for the band,” he said. “You can be ballsy and be out there. It feels like you’re not the frontman, so it allows us to go as crazy and as f--- up as we want to go. And that works for us.
The 'Cheap Thrills' artist also contributed original music to the soundtrack of 'Vox Lux' - a musical film featuring Natalie Portman and Jude Law. According to the film's press notes:
VOX LUX follows the rise of Celeste (Natalie Portman) from the ashes of a major national tragedy to pop superstardom. The film spans 18 years and traces important cultural moments through her eyes, starting in 1999 and concluding in 2017.
