Sia's New Baby Muse In Her 'Alive' Video Is So Serious It's Adorable

Ready for some karate?

In the depths of the shadows, there's always a bit of strength.

“I’m still breathing/ I’m still breathing/ I’m still breathing/ I’m still breathing/ I’m alive/ I’m alive/ I’m alive/ I’m alive.”

Sia sings those lyrics over and over on her This Is Acting track "Alive," the video for which dropped on Thursday (Nov. 5). The Maddie Ziegler-devoid video, starring a young karate student, matches the sentiment of the song -- if we're still here, we're surviving.

The kid, in a black and white wig that's defining the new album cycle, punches and kicks while being surrounded by darkness.

This Is Acting, an album full of rejected pop songs, is out Jan. 29.
