The long-awaited video for Sia’s Catching Fire ballad “Elastic Heart” premiered exclusively on Vevo today.

It’s animalistic and bizarre… and totally open to your own interpretation. [Glam Inbox]

In other music news, socialite Alexa Chung is broadening her crossover appeal with a collab. Her debut recording, a cover of Stevie Nicks’ “Blue Denim,” dropped today in tandem with the launch of TUNES and Alexa Chung for AG. Our take? Amazing. Peep her Gia Coppola-helmed music video, too!
