With the holidays just around the corner, many of us are getting ready for our yearly traditions. These can include ice skating on a frozen pond, drinking hot chocolate while tobogganing, writing cards to loved ones, or waiting for Rashida Jones and Jimmy Fallon to remake the year’s biggest songs.

First Sia gave us 1000 Forms Of Fear, now, the Australian singer-songwriter has released her latest single One Million Bullets. Apparently, she really likes counting macabre things. The third single off her upcoming seventh studio album, This Is Acting, has everything you’d expect from a Sia song. It starts with slow pianos and drums but […]
