After teasing her new track yesterday on Twitter, Sia has released the full version of Reaper, co-written and co-produced with Kanye West.
The twosome first worked together last year when West released his track Wolves and featured Sia’s vocals. Teaming up again, Reaper is part of a recording session with Kanye and Sia that was intended to create material for Rihanna. When the Diamonds singer passed, Sia snagged Reaper for herself.
The track is more upbeat than what we’re used to hearing from, well, all three parties involved. It would have been interesting to hear Rihanna’s take on a more lighthearted track after her last single, Bitch Better Have My Money.
In addition to Rihanna, Sia’s upcoming January 29th album This Is Acting also features songs originally written for Adele and Beyonce.
Before sharing Reaper on social media today, Sia also revealed the album’s tracklisting on her Instagram page. The singer and songwriter enlisted the marquees of famous music halls, including Toronto’s own Danforth Music Hall.
