Music is a musical drama film directed by singer-songwriter Sia.

Music was released in Australia on January 14, 2021, by StudioCanal and is scheduled to be released in select IMAX theatres in the United States for one night on February 10, 2021, followed by an on demand release on February 12, 2021, by Vertical Entertainment in USA and march 29 in France.

Music explores the fragile bonds that unite us and imagines a world where, beyond difficulties and differences, listening and attention to the other triumphs over everything ... A deeply human story where love is omnipresent. Multiple dreamlike musical sequences, conceived by SIA, sublimated by sumptuous choreographies, take us into the unique, melodic and colorful world of "Music". Her world will take you away. This film includes ten new songs from SIA.
The Australian superstar and hit maker with a long and impressive career has become a must-see for nearly a decade, with a place in the highly prized "club of billions of streams and Youtube views", multiple certifications and awards, timeless anthems such as "Chandelier", "Unstoppable" or many hits resulting from prestigious collaborations: David Guetta, LSD, Beyonce, Kanye West, Rihanna ... At the beginning of this year, Sia is getting ready to reveal its eighth studio album and to create the event with the musical and cinematographic project ''Music''. Like "Together", "Saved My Life", "Hey Boy" and her latest hit - and anthem in favor of Black Lives Matter and the American presidential elections - "Courage To Change", the fourteen unreleased songs on this new opus were both conceived for and inspired by the artist's feature film. A completely original exploration of the healing power of love and the strength of community, this intimate project, the culmination of several years' work, highlights Sia's pop and emotional music in a unique global experience conveying strong and universal values.
