Broken Glass
by Sia

Album: This is Acting (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Sia penned this upbeat and inspirational track with Jesse Shatkin, who also worked with the Australian on her "Chandelier" hit single.

    Sia writes at a fast pace while Shatkin is more painstaking. She told The Guardian that he sends her his bits of songs after he's finished with them, "because I cannot sit in a room while someone's fannying about. It makes me crazy - I literally don't want to spend more than four hours in the studio."
  • Sia told Rolling Stone that this torch song is one of her favorite tunes off This is Acting, but that she thought that it "might only be a bonus track."
