Today, Troye Sivan releases the video for “Dance To This” featuring Ariana Grande – a track from his forthcoming album, Bloom, released August 31 on EMI Music Australia.
Directed by Bardia Zeinali, the video was shot in Ukranian village in the East Village, NYC and features a gorgeous dance routine from the two superstar artists. Zeinali is a pop-obsessed videographer beloved by the likes of Petra Collins, Selena Gomez and Paris Hilton for his comical internet fashion clips done in his signature mash-up style and said to possess “the best Instagram of all time.”
Sivan said, “‘Dance To This’ is about that moment when you feel like you’ve been to enough house parties or events, and staying home and like, making out in the kitchen and cooking dinner sounds like a much, much better alternative.”
Bloom, which will be released on August 31, is now available for pre-order everywhere. Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive “Dance To This” plus the singles“Bloom” and “My My My!”
Sivan has released two new tracks via Spotify globally – a gorgeous ‘Bloom’ acoustic and a version of Post Malone’s ‘Better Now’ – and has also collaborated with Jonsi from Sigur Ros on the song ‘Revelation’ for the upcoming film ‘Boy Erased’, in which Troye also has an acting role. A snippet of the track has just been revealed in the official movie trailer HERE.
Next up, Troye sits down for an in-depth chat with Andrew Denton on 7’s “Interview” – tune in at 9.00pm local time, this coming Tuesday July 24.
USA Today said, “One of the most intriguing young talents of his generation is Troye Sivan, whose track My My My! is one of 2018’s best singles.” Naming it one of the Best Songs of 2018 (So Far), Billboard noted that while Troye’s earlier singles “suggested a teenage artist prepping for the leap to greatness…‘My My My!’ evidences an adult who’s already there, brimming with confidence from the first chopped-up synth moan.” Combined global streams of “My My My!” are approaching 200 million. Views of the official video have surpassed 30 million.
NYLON said, “It’s Troye Sivan’s year. If this past January’s ‘My My My!’ single cemented him as a budding gay icon, his latest release, ‘Bloom,’ is his grand flowering.” #Bloom was the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter the night of the track’s release. Rolling Stone praised the “glamorous, gender-bending video,” which can be seen HERE.
