Sia Reunites With David Guetta On Their Tropical-Tinged “Flames”
Sia and David Guetta established an excellent working chemistry after unveiling their debut collaboration, “Titanium,” in 2011. The explosive anthem was the first in a series they have rolled out over the years. Today (March 22), they are offering up their latest, and it is another smash. Called “Flames,” it is an inspiring anthem complete with a rousing production and another of the “Chandelier” siren’s jaw-dropping vocal lines.
“One foot in front of the other babe. One breath leads to another yeah; just keep moving,” Sia proclaims over lush synths on the opening lines. She continues inspiring as the track moves into its chorus. “Oh, my love, don’t stop burning. Gonna send them up in flames,” she sings. The production is vaguely tropical and warm enough to beat any final cold snaps of winter. The accompanying lyric video mirrors the warm vibes with a summery illustration and glowing letters.
In a press release, Guetta opened up about the pair’s history and his excitement at the prospect of getting back in the studio with her. “‘Titanium’ is still one of the tracks I am proudest of and Sia is one of my favorite artists to work with. She’s a great songwriter and has an amazing voice. I’m just super excited that we get to release another track together.”
“Flames” is another winning release for the pair’s discography. It joins their most recent collaboration, a rip-roaring remix of the Aussie’s “Helium.” Originally included on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, the brooding track was reimagined in honor of Sia’s Mac Cosmetics X Viva Glam collaboration. With any luck, their latest will replicate the meteoric success of their original release. Give the track a spin and check out its vibrant lyric video below!
