Sia, The Weeknd & Diplo's "Elastic Heart" Is The Best Ballad You'll Hear This Fall

I was pretty much fucks-free over last year's Hunger Games movie soundtrack, but the upcoming one for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (out November 19) has some decent artists attached (including Lorde, Coldplay, The Weeknd, Sia and Christina Aguilera).

In fact, Sia and The Weeknd team up here for Diplo production "Elastic Heart," which is pretty much, as stated up above, the best ballad you're going to hear this fall. (There's a rumor out there that the song was originally submitted to Beyonce, but whether it's true or not, I'm glad Sia ended up doing this herself.)

Sia is on an absolute tear, and her knack for stirring up emotions with the most unlikely collaborations (see David Guetta's "Titanium" and Rihanna's "Diamonds") via her lyrical ability is pretty uncanny.

"Elastic Heart" is available today on iTunes.
