Sia released a triumphant song last week to coincide with a new shoe line with Repetto. Listen to “I’m Still Here” above.
"I'm Still Here" starts with Sia's voice over light instrumentation. Unfolding in layers, a triumphant beat kicks in, and then the bass pushes the song to another level to accompany the lyrics, “Oh the past tormented me / But the battle was lost / ‘Cause I'm still here.” It is not quite a club hit like some of her more popular songs, but it has the same anthemic feel we have come to expect from Sia.
The YouTube video above and the website for Sia's collaboration with Repetto feature her iconic wig and giant bow. The french ballet shoe company were inspired by her emotional songwriting and mantra, “I love you, keep going.” The website also explains, "Movement, dance, style and freedom are the values shared by both Sia and Maison Repetto. Throughout the past year, Repetto’s team and Sia came together to creatively build a collaboration capturing the spirit of everyone who lives to their own beat."
The song will also be featured on an upcoming HBO documentary titled At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal. Both the shoes and the documentary are scheduled for release in 2019.
“I’m Still Here” is available on all major streaming services, as well as for purchase on Amazon.
