Posted on October 16, 2015

Stamps of approval from Sam Smith & Taylor Swift — Troye Sivan‘s starting his career with a bang! His recent ‘Wild‘ EP became a certified worldwide pop chart phenomenon, hitting No.1 in Australia and No.5 in the UK and US, as well as topping iTunes in 57 countries internationally; However, this was only a warm-up for the 20-year-old Australian artist. Troye sat down with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 where he announced his first “proper” album title and release date. ‘Blue Neighbourhood‘ is set for global release on December 4th, but if you pre-order it now on iTunes, you’ll instantly receive his new single ‘Talk Me Down’, an intimate love song produced by Emile Haynie. His new single wasn’t the only thing revealed! When chatting with Zane, Troye spoke about the new video for “Talk Me Down,” the third part of the music video trilogy he’s been releasing. If you haven’t already watched the first and second parts of the trilogy, “Wild” and “Fools” (both with over 9 million combined views), we suggest you do so as we anticipate the final element of the trilogy series being released very soon! “Everything that I’ve been doing over the last couple of years has been building up to this moment.” Troye went on to tell Zane that his debut album is “supposed to tell a really clear, sonic story of who I am.” Watch the full Beats 1 interview here: Troye’s debut album has quickly worked its way up the iTunes chart, currently at the No.1 in Canada! And, that isn’t where the exciting news ends – he also announced long awaited Australia, UK and Europe tour dates. This marks Troye Sivan’s first North American tour – for which tickets sold out in less than 27 minutes around the country. To ensure everyone has a fair go, Troye will be hiding tickets for people to find as a “pop-up ticket giveaway.” Stay tuned here for more info!
