‘You’ve Changed’

‘‘That’s why I’m here, that’s my department. I’m from the ballads department,” said Sia back in March when speaking to Australian newspaper The Herald Sun about her songwriting collaboration with Christina Aguilera, unselfconsciously expressing a self-evident truth. Sia’s three albums to date have been rather heavy on all things down- to mid-tempo, so prepare to be shocked by ‘You’ve Changed’, the first song to emerge from her eagerly awaited new album We Are Born, produced by The Bird & The Bee’s Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Kylie Minogue). She ‘leaked’ it herself on Twitter earlier this week, and now it’s officially out there for everyone to excitedly bop along to. Elastic and colourful, ‘You’ve Changed’ finds Sia tucking away some of her wonderful eccentricities for a straight up disco song akin to something Basement Jaxx might have conjured up in their prime, with an assured vocal performance that’s beautifully soulful exactly where it needs to be and playful where it counts. It’s impossible to imagine this not being a hit on dancefloors, and if this is the quality of the material they are happy to just give away, We Are Born must be a corker. Ballads’ loss is everyone’s gain. MP3 after the jump.
