The singer-songwriter leaves RCA for fresher waters.

Sia is leaving RCA records for Atlantic, and her first project with her new label will be a holiday album of original tunes.

"Sia is a once-in-a-generation artist," said Atlantic Records' Craig Kallman and Julie Greenwald in a statement. "Her extraordinary gifts as a singer and songwriter, her revolutionary approach to the art of performing, her groundbreaking videos--everything she does comes from a deep wellspring of inspiration and imagination. Sia is that rare artist who has formed her own singular, boundless musical universe. We are so happy to welcome her into the Atlantic family and to be joining Sia on her amazing musical journey."

The new holiday album for Atlantic will be written in collaboration with Sia's producer, Greg Kurstin. She joins Kelly Clarkson, whom she formerly wrote for, at the label, as well as fellow artists Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran, Charlie Puth, Meek Mill, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, Janelle Monae, Wiz Khalifa, Sturgill Simpson, Paramore and Rita Ora, among others.

Sia's kept very busy as of late: in addition to her tour, she's currently at work on her directorial debut, Sister, which she wrote for her frequent collaborator Maddy Zeigler. The movie is based on a short, page-long story the artist wrote eight years ago.

"I was too embarrassed to tell anyone I wanted to make a movie," she said at a panel during Venice Days, a sidebar of the Festival. "And then last year, after I made the 'Chandelier' video, I realized that I was pretty good at directing, so I felt a little bit braver," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
