“Alive” is the lead single from Australian singer and songwriter Sia’s forthcoming album This Is Acting. It was co-written by Sia, Adele, and Tobias Jesso Jr. The song was produced by Jesse Shatkin. “Alive” received universal acclaim from music critics, who praised Furler’s vocals as well as the song’s production. Rolling Stone critic Jon Blistein described Furler’s vocals as “devastating, electrifying,” and wrote, “while the dramatic build of “Alive” sounds straight out of Adele’s wheelhouse, the outsized pop production — courtesy of Jesse Shatkin — and the ragged, throat-cracking, enrapturing vocal run Sia embarks on at the end are quintessentially her.”
