Troye Sivan admits that he didn't know his new music would be "full of hope" when he first started making it.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard a new EP or album from Troye Sivan.
Since releasing his second album, Bloom, in 2018, the singer/songwriter/actor has toured extensively, performed with Taylor Swift, put out his fifth EP, In A Dream, in August 2020, and took part in a string of collaborative singles, including Easy with Kacey Musgraves and Mark Ronson, Wait featuring Gordi, and most recently, You Know What I Need with Pnau.
In a new interview with Elle Magazine, the My My My! singer discussed new music without giving too much away. “I think what I feel comfortable saying is that it’s full of hope, which I didn’t know it was going to be when I first started making it,” Sivan said.
He added, “I made an EP during COVID [when] I was really in my feelings, going through a massive breakup, processing all of that and writing about it and I was like, ‘God, am I about to write a whole 12-track album or whatever about this?’”
His new music will arrive with a new mindset. Sivan revealed, “I have no idea what the future holds, and that is totally okay. I'm so happy to just be in this moment right now with this person that I just met five minutes ago, or my best friends, or whatever. I felt a really strong sense of humanity and connection, and that was very inspiring to me.”
Sivan teased the emergence of new music in November.

In an Instagram post, Sivan posted a snippet of a new song that sounded gorgeous and intimate and captioned it with, "Prolly won't come out for ages but I'm feeling cheeky," he said. "Album is almost done. Bark in the comments if you're keen".
In The Music’s Bloom review, we wrote, "Ending with the heavenly soulful Animal; there is no denying Troye Sivan's unapologetic release comes from somewhere honest and meaningful - each lyric rings out confidently with passion and poise. It's a certainty that these soulful and cheeky pop tunes will have many dancing around their bedrooms with all the power in their bones."
