With 2016 winding down, Sia has been busy between releasing a deluxe edition of her album This is Acting in October and contributing to the Hamilton mixtape, which will be released on December 2nd. She also appears on the Lion soundtrack with the encouraging and empowering track “Never Give Up.”
“Never Gives Up” begins with Indian synths and a Bollywood rhythm before Sia comes in with her trademark vocals. “And I won’t let you get me down/ I’ll keep getting up when I hit the ground/ Oh, I’ll never give up, no, never give up, no no,” she sings on the chorus.
Lion follows a little Indian boy who gets separated from his family and ends up lost in the streets of Calcutta when he’s only 5 years old. An Australian family adopts him, and 25 years later he sets out to find his birth family. The movie stars Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, and opens in select theaters on November 25th.
