Troye Sivan: “Heaven” (WATCH)

Ahead of Inauguration Day in the U.S., Australian pop star Troye Sivan has released an emotionally-charged video for “Heaven” featuring fellow Aussie Betty Who from his debut album Blue Neighbourhood. The video, directed by Luke Gilford, features historical footage from pivotal moments in the LGBT rights movement.

“Writing that song was very therapeutic to me at the time,” Sivan said in a 2016 cover interview for Out. “It was me thinking about how hard I try to be a good person and then feeling like, before I even opened my eyes as a little baby—because I think I was born gay—I was a sinner. All of those are very standard, but very confusing and hurtful conversations that you have to have with yourself as an LGBTQ person.”

The single, from Sivan’s debut album Blue Neighbourhood, is available through most online outlets, including Amazon and iTunes.
