Los Angeles - Sia is going on tour for the first time in five years.

The Cheap Thrills hitmaker will be supported by Miguel and AlunaGeorge for her Nostalgic For The Present Tour'of America, which consists of a run of 22 shows beginning in Seattle on 29 September and will conclude in November in Austin, Texas.

An announcement posted to Sia's official Twitter page read: "Sia's headlining the Nostalgic For The Present Tour' this fall & bringing @Miguel + @alunageorge #SiaOnTour - Team Sia (sic)"

Sia - whose real name is Kate Isobelle Furler - last did an extensive tour in 2011, called We Are Born Tour.

It will also be the 40-year-old pop beauty's first ever arena tour.

The tour comes after the release of her seventh studio LP This Is Acting, which dropped in January.

Her LP is a collection of rejected songs she wrote for other artists including Adele, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Beyoncé.

Talking about reclaiming Adele and Rihanna's unwanted hits, Sia previously said: "I feel like they're hits, but nobody wanted them.

"So I thought , 'Let's see, as an experiment, If I'm right.'"

Sia wrote the song from her LP called Birds Set Free with Adele and she offered it to Rihanna for Anti before putting it on This Is Acting.

Sia revealed: "I believe she did (get a chance to consider it) and she passed. We sent it to her, but it's not really her so I don't know why I thought that. It is a smash, but she's a little more edgy."

Meanwhile, Sia's latest songwriting session saw her record a track for Blondie's new album.

Blondie guitarist Chris Stein said: "Sia and that guy from the Stroke wrote a song that we have on there."

Chris also revealed that singer Debbie Harry is thrilled with the track and thinks it is "amazing".
