Summary quotation from Wikipedia:
She Wolf (Falling to Pieces) is a song performed by French DJ and music producer David Guetta, featuring vocals from Australian recording artist Sia. It was released as the lead single from the re-release of Nothing But the Beat, Nothing But the Beat 2.0, and tallies as the albums seventh single overall. It was released via digital download on August 21, 2012.
Prior to its official release on August 21, 2012, an EP of remixes of the track, featuring contributions from Michael Calingham and Sandro Silva, was made available for a short time exclusively via Beatport, on August 7, 2012. The official release then followed on August 21, 2012, before the track was issued in the form of CD single and 12" vinyl in Germany on August 24, 2012. The single was released in the United Kingdom on September 10, 2012, on the date of the albums release. It peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart. Although this song failed to chart the US Billboard Hot 100, it topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart, making it Guettas seventh number-one on the chart.
On September 21, 2012, a lyric video for the track was uploaded to Guettas official VEVO channel. On September 26, 2012, a trailer for the music video was released, with an official premiere date of October 3, 2012, revealed. An official video for the track was uploaded to Guettas official VEVO channel on September 28, 2012.
The video starts off with a shot of a naked woman, then it moves on to a wounded wolf running from a handful of human hunters. It is shown that the wolf is supernatural, as it is able to make the hunters explode on every breakdown of the song. The explosions depict the hunters and the landscape as composed by tiny polygons, as if everything were part of a computer simulated reality. At the end of the music video, the canine then transforms back into the naked woman at the start. The video tells a story- both the video and the lyrics - the she-wolf was once a woman who fell for and loved the hunter, but was shunned because of his guilt when he lay with her - giving into the sin. The man turned on her and wounded her, and she fell to pieces, becoming the she wolf. Her softness vanished, replaced by razor sharp edges. Cornered and wounded, the wolf destroys those who would kill her heart. The woman may mourn afterwards, looking out across a desolate sea, but the she-wolf survives. She will always survive. This is the second time that neither Guetta nor Sia make an appearance in the video.
The video was shot on-location in Iceland, at Lanjökull, and at Reykjanes, in Krýsuvik and near Reykjanesviti.
Robert Copsey of Digital Spy blog gave the song a mixed review stating:
After a global conquering hook-up with Flo Rida shes returned to where it all began with David Guetta, wholl be hoping that lightning strikes twice after the spectacular and chart-topping Titanium. Once again, its the heartfelt lyrics that shine over the handbag house as she confesses: You hunted me down like a wolf, a predator/
I felt like a deer in your lights with the same inimitable gusto. The result is nothing we havent heard already, but thats not necessarily a bad thing.
