More than five years have passed since Troye Sivan dropped an album. The drought is broken, the floodgates open with Something To Give Each Other, the Australian pop star’s third studio LP.
Something To Give Each Other arrived at the stroke of midnight, its 10 tracks a celebration of “sex, dance, sweat, community, queerness, love and friendship,” and passage through a challenging time.
It’s the followup to Sivan’s sophomore album from 2018, Bloom, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, one of his four top 10 appearances on the chart.
The new LP includes the single “Rush” which has amassed over 215 million combined global streams and debuted on 12 Billboard charts, including a No. 77 bow on the Hot 100; and follow-up single “Got Me Started,” which has raked in over 30 million combined streams, according to EMI.
Written and recorded in London, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sweden, Sivan worked closely on Something with a collection of collaborators, including Oscar Görres (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Sam Smith), Ian Kirkpatrick (Dua Lipa, Britney Spears), AG Cook (Charli XCX, Beyoncé), Styalz Fuego (Khalid, Imagine Dragons) and Leland (Selena Gomez), and creative director Gordon von Steiner.
To celebrate the fresh release, Sivan shares the official music video for album track “One Of Your Girls,” which features actor and musician Ross Lynch. The clip, which can be seen below, was created by the team behind the videos for “Rush” and “Got Me Started” — director von Steiner, cinematographer Stuart Winecoff (JAY Z, FKA twigs, Miu Miu) and choreographer Sergio Reis (BTS’ “Black Swan”).
The 28-year-old is firmly established in the fields of pop, fashion, film and LGBTQI+ culture, and has been a fixture on U.S. TV over this past week, with spots on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, and more. He’s the cover star for the September 2023 issue of Rolling Stone AU/NZ.
The five-year gap between albums, “it wasn’t intentional,” he told Fallon. “It was just like, I started working on it then COVID (happened), then I was filming a TV show, doing whatever. It just took a long time. I’m genuinely, like, this is the most proud I’ve ever been of anything.”
