“It’s true, babe… I’ve been saving this for you…”
Troye Sivan has released his brand new single Bloom – complete with a lyric video created by 3D artist Jason Ebeyer – which serves as the second official release from his forthcoming album.
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.”
Bloom follows Troye’s previous single My, My, My!, which was released back in January.
He also released promo rack The Good Side as an extra taster of things to come.
The 22-year-old singer-songwriter will release his second studio collection later this year.
We know that it features a collaboration with Ariana Grande, which Troye confirmed earlier this year.
