Australian singer-songwriter Sia premiered her highly-anticipated single "Chandelier" on Sunday. Known mostly for the hits she has written for other artists, Sia clearly saves the best one for herself with this massive pop track.

Sia has been working the music circuit since dropping a debut album in 1997 but she recently rose to global prominence by penning songs for big artists like David Guetta, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Lea Michele and countless others. She signed with RCA Records last year to release her next album. "Chandelier" serves as her debut single with the label.

"Chandelier" opens with a hip-hop drum machine and Sia musing about the party life. The song truly finds its wings on the mighty chorus when big beats set in and her elastic voice soars. "I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier," she sings with an unrestrained rawness. Sia makes you hang onto her every word as she enunciates the hell out of them, proving no one can do Sia quite like the singer herself. With "Chandelier," Sia supplies a dark party anthem full of powerful lyricism and out-of-this-world vocals.

"Chandelier" is now available on iTunes. Sia's debut album with RCA Records is set to be released later this year.
