Sia told CMU
about her songwriting process: "I'm incredibly lazy, so most of the time I like to lay down when I'm writing; we often have beds in the studio! Whoever I'm writing with, we'll usually start with the chords and then build around that, with sample drums, bass, guitar, piano. Then we'll work on the track until it's at an acceptable stage, so that we can play it to management etc. Much much later, after we've practised it enough so that it's really sharp, we'll record it live."
