Every year there is a number of artists who take advantage of the festive season. Over the past few years, acts like Kelly Clarkson, Michael Bublé, Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani and more have released Christmas records and this year, pop superstar Sia brought out a collection of 10 brand new original Christmas songs as she released ‘Everyday Is Christmas’.
The album’s lead single ‘Santa’s Coming For Us’ has done well for the star and while she sings of celebration, the singer also reminds us that getting a puppy for Christmas is a serious undertaking. The dog lover wrote a song titled ‘Puppies Are Forever’ where she explains what a huge deal it is adding a furry friend to your family. The track is filled with Christmas jingles, a catchy chorus and yet another phenomenal vocal performance from Sia. But, while the song is a standout off the record, the message is even more important and we love that popular mainstream acts are using their voices to stand out for their furry friends.
Sia’s new album is her first since signing to Atlantic Records and a concept she’s always wanted to play with. “I thought we had a bit of a shortage of good Christmas music. There’s obviously the classics and stuff, but anything new, I wasn’t vibing that much on it,” she said in an interview with Zane Lowe. “I just was having so much fun, because it’s already there, all of the concepts, you just have to expand on them. It’s not like you have to have an original idea to begin with. It’s like, Christmas, mistletoe, ho-ho-ho, Santa Claus, Christmas list, elves. You’ve got all of the subject matter,” she explained. “It was easy and fun. So, we did it in two weeks. And I couldn’t stop writing new songs — so, I ended up with an original album by accident.” The album is the perfect soundtrack to your Christmas and one we will be playing on repeat this festive season.
