Troye Sivan debut album ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ out today

0 155

On the heels of selling out his first headlining tour which hits 25 cities in North American next year, Troye Sivan today releases his highly anticipated debut album BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD.

Troye will celebrate the release of BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD with his first ever TV performance on the iconic THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON on December 8. In addition to this, Troye will also be featured on 60 MINUTES AUSTRALIA Sunday December 6 – watch the trailer here. In addition, he has been named Vevo LIFT artist of the month for December.

Featuring his brand new single “YOUTH,” the album BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD is a musical trip full of twists and turns, cutting-edge production, sparse booming beats, majestic flourishes and beautiful modern poetry. Troye Sivan has built an intoxicating mini-universe of high emotion, exuberance and fragility. It’s a gleaming statement in state-of-the-art pop, an international soundtrack for today. At its core is the pure, honest, fragile, nuanced, exquisite, anxious, aching, soulful vocal styling’s of Troye Sivan.

“It’s all autobiographical,” says Troye of BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD. “It takes place in both the suburbs of Perth where I’ve grown up, which I consider to be my blue neighbourhood, but then also in this fast-paced, crazy, whirlwind life that I’m now living in hotel rooms and planes. And it takes place inside the mind of a 20-year-old kid. I wanted to make sure that youthfulness was there…”

Last week, Troye debuted the lyric video for “YOUTH” which features footage from his first ever live show in Seattle. In two weeks since release “YOUTH” has gone top 10 on Spotify’s Viral Hits Chart and has been streamed over four million times, listen here. Troye has also been selected as one of Spotify’s SPOTLIGHT Artist’s in 2016 campaign.

Troye Sivan is a true global contemporary pop phenomenon – evolving from one of the most celebrated YouTubers on the platform to the world’s most exciting new pop wunderkind.

Troye’s first EP, 2014’s TRXYE, topped iTunes charts in 66 countries, as well as debuting at #5 on the US Billboard album charts. Last year, Time magazine named Troye one of the most influential teenagers of 2014. When he announced the imminent release of his WILD mini-album in August 2014, pre-orders instantly sent the record to the top of the charts in 56 countries including Australia, USA, UK, Russia and Brazil. Its actual release was met with exuberant praise from the likes of Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, while the mini-album immediately topped the ARIA album charts on debut, and peaked at # 5 in both the USA and UK.

★★★★ “…stellar debut album.”
– Rolling Stone Australia 

 

“[Blue Neighbourhood] is full of shimmering electro-pop textures and disarmingly intimate lyrics…”

– OUT

 

“…21st century pop culture icon.”

– Dazed

 

“Troye’s music is unapologetically honest, and he explores everything autobiographically with a dark pop edge.”
