Sia Teases “Chandelier” Video: Premiere

The songwriter offers a sneak peek at her music video for "Chandelier," the first single from the upcoming 1000 Forms of Fear

Sia Furler has written more than her fair share of epic pop songs — but after crafting hits for Beyoncé, Rihanna, David Guetta and Britney Spears, the notoriously private Australian singer-songwriter is keeping a power ballad for herself. Sad-girl party anthem “Chandelier,” which premiered last month, is the first taste of her sixth studio album, 1000 Forms of Fear, due this summer. TIME has a first look at the music video, set to arrive very soon.

Though Sia’s signature blunt bob make an appearance here, that’s not actually her in the clip — it’s Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler taking a tumble. She’s also not swinging from a chandelier, either, but then again, the song is about drowning your problems with alcohol; it was never really meant to be a YOLO manifesto about destroying fancy light fixtures.
