Sia has teamed with Hamilton star Leslie Odom, Jr on a new version of his song Cold.
The song originally appeared on last year’s album Mr. from the Grammy and Tony Award-winning star, who just needs an Emmy and Oscar to complete his EGOT bingo card.
This re-recorded version was created virtually via remote sessions, with the wonders of technology conquering geographical distance.
Says Leslie of the song: “Sia has been a friend for a few years now after I met her backstage at Hamilton. As I look at making that foray into the pop world and pop music, she’s been a really great mentor and friend. I sent her the album and asked if there was anything she would want to collaborate on. She said, ‘I’ll sing on Cold‘, which was her favourite song from the album, so we recorded a new version of it that I think you’re really going to like.”
It’s no one-sided deal either, for Leslie is set to star in Sia’s forthcoming movie Music, alongside Kate Hudson and Maddie Ziegler.
