There’s a brand new Troye Sivan track in the world today and are we spoilt or what?
Last year Sivan dropped the In A Dream EP, which featured seven songs including the smash hits ‘Take Yourself Home’ and ‘Easy’.
While he wasn’t ready to completely move on from the masterpiece that was, he collaborated with Mark Ronson and Kacey Musgraves to create another version of the track ‘Easy’, taking it to a whole new dimension. With an insane film clip to boot, too.
Now just four months into 2021, Sivan began teasing a new song on social media, breadcrumbing us with snippets of the track and leaving many of us Sivan worshippers longing for a release date.
Finally the wait is over, as today Sivan’s new Regard track also featuring Tate McRae has been brought into the world. Titled, ‘You’, the song couldn’t be a more perfect release fit for a Friday, being a more than satisfying mix of pensive lyrics paired with upbeat vibes.
Today has been a huge day for Sivan, also announcing his brand new Melbourne digs via Architectural Digest.
On officially putting down roots in Melbourne, he said, “I was living in the States for about five years, longing to be in Australia, before the pandemic brought me home. As much as I’ve missed touring and seeing people, it’s been cool to be forced to stay still for a second. I wake up every day excited to make something new, in a house that tells the story of my life and the places I’ve loved.”
The artist’s home has a rich architectural history in Melbourne and also plays a huge role in telling the narrative of Sivan’s experiences and travels.

He added, “There’s a strong affinity between Melbourne and L.A. in terms of climate and architecture. That strain of classic California midcentury modernism has been a big influence,” he explains. “I also love the time I’ve spent in Japan. The idea of wabi-sabi, the perfectly imperfect, really resonates with me.”
