Sia has signed a worldwide deal with Warner Music’s Atlantic Records which brings to an end her relationship with Sony.
The star owns her own label, Monkey Puzzle, and has licensed recent albums including 1000 Forms Of Fear (2014) and last year’s This Is Acting (pictured) through Sony worldwide outside Australia.
In Sia’s home territory of Oz, these records have been distributed via Inertia.
Now, starting with an upcoming Christmas album co-created with fellow songwriter Greg Kurstin, Sia’s future albums will be released globally via Monkey Puzzle/Atlantic.
If you wanted a clue as to why Sia has decided to plump for Atlantic, you might find one in the fact that her management team at Crush Management entered into a partnership with Warner last year for their own label, Future Crush Music.
“Sia is that rare artist who has formed her own singular, boundless musical universe. We are so happy to welcome her into the Atlantic family.”

“Sia is a once-in-a-generation artist. Her extraordinary gifts as a singer and songwriter, her revolutionary approach to the art of performing, her groundbreaking videos – everything she does comes from a deep wellspring of inspiration and imagination,” stated Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman and Atlantic Records Chairman/COO Julie Greenwald in a joint statement.
“Sia is that rare artist who has formed her own singular, boundless musical universe. We are so happy to welcome her into the Atlantic family and to be joining Sia on her amazing musical journey.”
Sia’s massive single “Cheap Thrills” was a multi-format global radio hit last year, and ended 2016 as Spotify’s fifth most-streamed track worldwide.
This Is Acting went platinum in multiple territories including the US, the UK and France.
In addition to her success as an artist, Sia has written global smashes for/with the likes of Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and many more.Music Business Worldwide
