Sorry, Folks: Sia Doesn't Change Things


News today in Rolling Stone is that enigmatic 'star' Sia is coming out with a Christmas record.  Of original songs.  But, fortunately, it isn't coming out until later this year.  When we all know listening to Christmas music is more appropriate.
Sia announced plans on Tuesday to record her first Christmas album. The LP will be her first release through Atlantic Records – a new home for the singer after a pair of successful albums with RCA.

All the songs on Sia's Christmas LP will be originals composed with help from Greg Kurstin. Kurstin, an in-demand Top 40 savant (Adele, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), previously worked with Sia on her last three albums and served as producer or co-producer on the singer's biggest solo hits: "Cheap Thrills," "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart."
Originals?  Really?  I guess that's courageous, right? Based on her career, we should give it the benefit of the doubt, right?

There's no word yet if we all have to face the corners of the room and avoid any sort of eye contact while we listen to it together over the holidays.

The Hour is Upon Us

Less than 24 hours until we can crank it up and put away the Halloween stuff.

Our friends at Buzzfeed summed it up really well thusly:

Yes! Today is *The* Day!

It has been 311 long, agonizing days.  But we made it!  Today marks the turning point towards the holiday season.  Sure, there's still that pesky Thanksgiving and it's needy stuffing to be dealt with, but let's be honest:  it is all Christmas from here on out.

And that means, officially, that we can now tune into Christmas music.  Go ahead, break out the She and Him Holiday record.  Or that weird Bob Dylan Christmas in the Heart album from a few years back.  You can!  Nobody is going to judge.

The countdown clock on the homepage now says ZERO.  Let's celebrate with a little "Baby it's cold outside."
