Description

20-year-old Troye Sivan is about to unleash a body of work where you’ll hear the sound of youth in all its awkward glory – equal parts bravery, pride, vulnerability, ambition and “don't give a fuck” naiveté . You’ll hear collaborations with some of music’s best new futurists. You’ll hear his fervent fanbase, millions strong, sing alongside him. You’ll hear words he wrote in his bedroom… More than anything, you’ll hear honesty.

WILD reveals that growth to the world, a six track showcase of Troye’s musical vision: dark, infectious pop music at its most organic. With WILD Troye has taken his time to meticulously craft a body of work that makes his first definitive statement as an artist and he wants to take his fans on this journey with him. WILD is an opening installment, a 6 song keyhole that introduces us to a wider world of music to come from Sivan in the near future.

A nod to his first output from mid-2014 – the song “WILD”features a key collaborator just one year his senior – Sydney-based songwriter Alex Hope, who’s already had a 2× platinum Australian #1 single and co-wrote “FUN”for Troye’s first EP. “WILD was one of the last songs we wrote and I think it’s because before, I would have been too nervous to even let the session start heading into that poppier space. Finding that trust between us meant that we could stray further into the pop world and still feel sure that the song was going to be cool and authentic. Only once we knew the space, sound and the project so well, could we let ourselves explore that. Now it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.”

Acclaimed New Zealand sibling duo BROODS duet with Troye on “EASE”, a cry for help the pairing felt they needed to make to express the pain of missing the individuals and experiences that complete them. “Take me back to the basics and the simple life,” they sing on an ’80s influenced jam that would find Troye in tears the night they wrote it. “There’s a genuine innocence to it because it was written and created by young people. It’s raw and honest, and I’m so obsessed with Broods and have been for so long… it’s just a dream song to me,” Sivan enthuses of the collaboration.

What Troye strove for with WILD was a collection of songs that follows no conventions. ‘Filler tracks’ are nowhere to be seen. The mini-album exudes originality from tip to tail and every song is sure to resonate differently with each person who hears it. “The thought of having to pick a single song that defines this time in my life just made me super uncomfortable and didn’t seem intuitive or natural to where I come from.”
