Could this be the song of the summer?
Hot on the heels of his excellent ‘bottoming anthem’ Bloom, Australian singer-songwriter Troye Sivan has announced another single that’s sure to be on the playlist of every gay man this Pride season.
Dance To This will be the fourth single released from Troye’s upcoming sophomore album, and even more exciting than the club-ready-sounding title is the fact that fellow pop icon Ariana Grande has a feature on the track.
Oh, and it’s out on 13 June – that’s Wednesday this week!

Last month, Troye announced that his new album would be called Bloom, and that it would be released on 31 August.
It shares its name with the third single from the album, which has a rather cheeky meaning.
Fans already knew about the track as Aussie pop prince previously spoke about during an interview, where he seemingly hinted at the real meaning behind the lyrics.
Nope, it’s not about his penchant for flower arranging or a certain British actor, but rather about gay sex. Bottoming, to be exact.
Asked by Dazed if that was the true meaning behind the song, Troye coyly replied with a wink: “It’s 100 per cent about flowers! That’s all it is.
“Call it whatever you wanna call it. I wanna play that song at every Pride. There’s almost a radicalism in just truth, you know? The most radical thing that I can do is share how happy I am.”
The lyrics in question include: ““It’s true, babe / I’ve been saving this for you / Promise me you’ll hold my hand if I get scared now / Might tell you to take a second baby slow it down / You should know I bloom, I bloom just for you.”
We’ll leave it up to you to decide what Troye’s really singing about.
