‘Music’ Trailer: Sia’s Directorial Debut Stars Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., And Maddie Ziegler

Known for her eye-catching sense of style, Sia is one of the most recognizable performers in the world. The multi-Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter has embarked on something new with her directorial debut, Music, which combines performance art, musicals, and extensive dance sequences to tell a story of sisterly love.

Kate Hudson stars as Zu, a newly-sober woman who suddenly learns that she is to become guardians to her autustic half-sister, Music, played by frequent collaborator Maddie Ziegler. Leslie Odom Jr. plays Ebo, a man who has similar experience to what Zu is going through and lends her a helping hand in the care for Music.

The cast includes Ben Schwartz, Tig Notaro, Hector Elizondo, Mary Kay Place, and Juliette Lewis. Sia also co-wrote the screenplay, and will release her eighth studio album alongside the film, featuring ten original songs from her and the cast.

Music opens in limited theatrical release in February 2021.
