With just over two weeks to go until the release of his new EP, Troye Sivan has given fans another sneak peek, sharing the audio and video for new single ‘Rager Teenager!’.
This month is set to see Troye Sivan release In A Dream, his first collection of new music since the release of Bloom back in 2018. Of course, we’ve seen plenty of Sivan’s work in the meantime, including singles such as ‘Somebody To Love’, ‘Strawberries & Cigarettes’ from the Love, Simon soundtrack, and ‘1999’ with Charli XCX.
Now, following the release of singles like ‘Take Yourself Home’ and ‘Easy’, Sivan has given fans another taster of what to expect from the upcoming EP, sharing ‘Rager Teenager!’ earlier today.
Having described In A Dream as a “concept EP”, Sivan explained that the six tracks serve as an exploration of an “emotional rollercoaster period in my life when the feelings and thoughts were most shockingly fresh”. ‘Rager Teenager!’ comes near the end of the exploration, serving as the penultimate track on the EP.
Of course, no release of Troye Sivan material would be complete without the addition of an accompanying music video, which comes by way of a self-directed clip. Simplistic in its design, the video shows Sivan singing the song from the comfort of a bathtub as visual effects distort his appearance from time to time, giving it something of a surreal appearance.
The new single comes just a few days after Sivan made an appearance on Zane Lowe’s “At Home With” series on Apple Music to discuss how his new EP came about.
“I didn’t go in thinking I was going to write an album,” he explained. “I’ve got an EP because I was just kind of going through a lot and I just wanted to start writing.
“I didn’t know this EP is such a weird little thing in that all of these songs sound pretty different from each other. And I think the through line, through all of them, is just that I felt like I needed to write that day.”
While ‘Rager Teenager!’ is out now, Troye Sivan’s In A Dream EP is available for pre-order now.
