Sia + Beck Team Up On ‘Moonquake Lake’ for ‘Annie’ Soundtrack
With a reggae rhythm flowing through it, 'Moonquake Lake' is a fun pop tune that will raise your spirits and put some pep in your step. While Sia's vocals sound distinct, Beck's voice seems to soften a bit, sounding way smoother than what you normally hear. This track is definitely one we can see his kids rocking out to.
This isn't the first time Beck and Sia have worked together. They've been playing together on stage since the time they covered 'You're the One That I Want' from 'Grease' at 'KCRW Sounds Electric Evening' in 2002. The two then co-wrote 'The Bully,' along with two more songs' for her 2004 LP, 'Colour the Small One.' Sia also appears in Beck's video for 'The Informaiton.'
Remembering that 'Grease' cover, Sia says, "I suggested it as a joke; but we changed the major to a minor, made it really slow and turned it into a bit of a country stalker anthem." The pair repeated the duet at several other 2002 shows, then again in 2006.
Sia contributes a few more songs on the 'Annie' soundtrack, but the tunes are mostly led by Quvenzhané Wallis, who plays the main character.
