Troye Sivan released the official video for “Dance To This” featuring Ariana Grande – a track from his forthcoming album, Bloom. Sivan said, “‘Dance To This’ is about that moment when you feel like you’ve been to enough house parties or events, and staying home and like, making out in the kitchen and cooking dinner sounds like a much, much better alternative.” The video was directed by frequent Vogue contributor Bardia Zeinali, who also oversaw Troye’s “Bloom” video.
The single topped the iTunes charts in 21 countries and was a #1 worldwide trend on Twitter. Idolator praised “Dance To This” as “refreshingly casual…[with] a chorus that leaves you wanting more in the best possible way.” SPIN said it’s “fun…like a party anthem for introverts who feel like they’ve ‘seen all the parties.'”
USA Today said, “One of the most intriguing young talents of his generation is Troye Sivan, whose track ‘My My My!’ is one of 2018’s best singles.” Naming it one of the Best Songs of 2018 (So Far), Billboard noted that while Troye’s earlier singles “suggested a teenage artist prepping for the leap to greatness…’My My My!’ evidences an adult who’s already there, brimming with confidence from the first chopped-up synth moan.”
NYLON said, “It’s Troye Sivan’s year. If this past January’s ‘My My My!’ single cemented him as a budding gay icon, his latest release, ‘Bloom,’ is his grand flowering.” #Bloom was the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter the night of the track’s release.
Bloom, which will be released by Capitol Records on August 31, and is now available for pre-order everywhere.
The Bloom Tour kicks off on September 21 with three shows in Texas featuring special guest Kim Petras, including at the Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater on Sunday, September 23, 2018 as well as at the Pavilion @ Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas, on Friday, September 21 and at the Smart Financial Center on Monday, September 24 in Sugar Land, Texas.
