We have the new video for Sia’s new single ‘You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile, from the Annie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, for you! Following the release of her new album “1000 Forms Of Fear”, which stormed to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 200 Album chart earlier this year, plus the global success of the US platinum selling, GRAMMY nominated lead single “Chandelier”, Sia returns with the first single taken from the Annie OST “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile”, performed and co-written by Sia and produced by Greg Kurstin, who also serves as Executive Music Producer on the film.
The video for the lead single was filmed with the energetic backdrop of New York City, and helmed by the acclaimed director Will Gluck, who is also the film’s director.
Sia was nominated for an incredible 4 GRAMMY Awards last Friday for her standout single “Chandelier” taken from her most recent album ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’, released earlier this year. Sia was nominated for Record and Song Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance Of The Year and also Best Music Video.
