Sia signs to Atlantic Records, announces Christmas album

Sia officially has a new home. The superstar singer (and songwriter to her fellow stars) has made the leap from RCA to Atlantic Records. Her first release under the recently signed worldwide deal will be a collection of original holiday songs written by Sia and producer Greg Kurstin, due later this year via Monkey Puzzle/Atlantic Records, according to a release announcing the deal Tuesday (Aug. 1).

"Sia is a once-in-a-generation artist. Her extraordinary gifts as a singer and songwriter, her revolutionary approach to the art of performing, her groundbreaking videos – everything she does comes from a deep wellspring of inspiration and imagination," said Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman and Atlantic Records Chairman/COO Julie Greenwald in a statement. "Sia is that rare artist who has formed her own singular, boundless musical universe. We are so happy to welcome her into the Atlantic family and to be joining Sia on her amazing musical journey."
