Music – Songs from and Inspired by the Motion Picture is the ninth studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Sia, scheduled for release on 12 February 2021 by Monkey Puzzle and Atlantic, in connection with the release of the film Music, which was directed and co-written by Sia.

Sia wrote 10 songs for the soundtrack, some of which are included on the album. The album also includes songs “inspired by” the film, such as “Saved My Life”, co-written by Dua Lipa, which was released on 2 May 2020.

Sia did not conceive Music as a musical film. She said that friends told her it would be like “[having] a blank Scrabble chip, and not using it” if she didn’t make the film as a musical. She stated that the film’s budget increased from $4 million to $16 million with its transformation into a musical, as the studio could profit from the soundtrack. Sia wrote 10 songs for the film, some of which are featured on Music – Songs from and Inspired by the Motion Picture, along with new material inspired by the film. The album has a total of 14 tracks; the Japanese edition of the album features 2 domestic bonus tracks, “I’m Still Here”, which was first released in 2018, and the Initial Talk remix of “Together”.

Sia considers this a studio album rather than a soundtrack album; the cast version of the soundtrack is also due out on February 12.
