Cherubic crooner Troye Sivan released a new bop today, “Bloom,” off of his upcoming album and you will definitely be hearing it a Pride party or two this summer.
In a recent interview with Dazed and Confused, Sivan was asked if “Bloom” is meant to be a power anthem for bottoms.
“It’s 100 percent about flowers! That’s all it is,” Sivan answered, “with a wink.”
Here’s a sample of some of the lyrics from the track:
Tell me right before it goes down
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, you should know I
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
Yeah, flowers, sure.
Sivan also said that he hopes the song is played at “every Pride” and when talking with Attitude magazine, he hinted how is upcoming album is more “grimy and sexy” than his first one.
“I think the first album was a much younger album. It was like coming out, leaving home, first relationship and first break-up, all of that stuff was in there,” he explained.
“And this time round, I just feel a little bit more grown up and as if I’m having a lot more fun. I feel really happy and that, I think, is coming through.”
