Preview Sia's "Alive" Video Now

Sia's towering, powerful "Alive" has been sitting pretty on our playlists for a month now. And the music video is on the way. It'll follow 2015 tours-de-force "Elastic Heart," "Big Girls Cry" and "Fire Meet Gasoline."

The new "Alive" teaser shows a child meditating at the center of a room strewn with rocks. That's the whole thing. This won't be the first time a Sia visual features a kiddo, obviously—see her long working relationship with now-13-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler.

Vevo advises us to "get ready"; the "Chandelier" belter merely says the clip's "coming soon."

"Alive" comes from Sia's upcoming This Is Acting, an album full of tracks initially penned for other singers. It was co-written with the just-returned-in-a-big-way Adele—and sung from her perspective—as well as Australian artist Tobias Jesso Jr. 

While you wait for the full new Sia video, check out the lyric video to "Alive," a song very worth having a lyric video for. And get ready for her Saturday Night Live gig on November 7, the night Donald Trump is hosting.
