"Never Give Up" is Sia's single from the soundtrack to "Lion," the movie starring Dev Patel and Rooney Mara. It's her latest release since topping the charts last year with "Cheap Thrills" featuring Sean Paul. "Never" was produced by Sia's usual collaborator Greg Kurstin, the man behind hits by Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson as well. He supplies Sia with her plucky sound while including influences of Bollywood music. Atop the slinky beat, she keeps her cool with encouraging words. "I'll never give up / No / I'll find my way home," Sia sings. Her persevering positivity sounds like another pop hit.
In the lyric video for "Never Give Up," two kids dressed in black masks and Sia hairdos play around a train station. Sia doesn't make an appearance, but the children represent on her behalf. They help each other through the station and hold hands as the lyrics appear on the screen. Together they are an adorable team with the most appropriate soundtrack behind them.
"Never Give Up" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. "Lion" opened in theaters back in November and it's currently playing. Last year, Sia also re-released her This is Acting album.
