Troye Sivan Releases An Apologetic Lullaby – The Good Side

troye-sivan-new-song-snl-premiere

A week ago I posted an article on Troye Sivan’s first single, My My My! from his upcoming Sophomore album.  Today, Troye released another new song  (co-written by Leland, Bram Inscore, Allie X, and Ariel Rechtshaid   ) and this time, it hurts in the most bittersweet way.

The new single, The Good Side, shows the most tender side of Troye that we have been able to see throughout his music career so far. The acoustic song plays out the apologetic side of growing out of a relationship, and falling in love with someone new. Serving us a much more organic production and honest intimacy within the lyrics, it’s almost impossible to not fall into your feelings while listening to this one. 

Troye offers up a lullaby of an apology to his ex-boyfriend with lines such as, Found arms to fall right into, I know how it looked, it wasn’t the plan, and some day I hope that you’ll understand that I sympathize, and I recognize, and baby, I apologize that I got the good side, the good side of things,” and the most heart-wrenching part, “I’m sure we’ll meet in the spring and catch up on everything, I’ll say I’m proud of all that you’ve done ,you taught me the ropes, and you taught me to love.

This gentle syrupy song was a side of Troye that I was not expecting to hear, but I am so here for it. With the whimsical acoustic guitar chords and the soft vocals, The Good Side, is reinvigorating to breakup anthems everywhere. While most breakup songs stand bitter and angsty, this one reaches for closure, growth, and healing.   

Again I say, I will always be inspired and awed by Troye’s talent. I can’t wait to sob all night with The Good Side on repeat. 

You can watch Troye perform his new singles live this Saturday on SNL.

How Troye Sivan Saved 2018

feat-troye-sivan-mymymy

Troye Sivan brought the music scene off to an iconic start this year with the release of his first single, My My My!, from his highly anticipated sophomore album, due for a spring release.

My My My! is a romantic banger  with dreamy vibes and iridescent synths, full of love, liberation, and confidence. Produced by Oscar Görres, and written by Troye Sivan, Brett ‘leland’ Mclaughlin, and James Alan Ghaleb, this first single has all of the makings of a major hit. My My My! Is an anthem for love that is unapologetically honest. The 22-year-old delivered us the sultry track I was hoping for with lines such as, I got my tongue between your teeth; Go slow, no, no, go fast, you like it just as much as me.” Wig…incinerated.

It’s clear how much Sivan has matured since the release of his 2015 debut album, Blue Neighbourhood. With more defined vocals, amped up production levels, and pure confidence, this is going to be a game-changing era for Troye.

It’s been a sentimental journey for me watching Troye go from posting quirky videos on Youtube, to the release of his first EP, TRXYE, to him dropping his freshman album, Blue Neighbourhood, and to now hearing his first single from the upcoming second album.  

I’m always amazed by Troye’s raw talent and by all of the energy he puts out into the world. I cannot wait to hear the rest of the new album and see all of what Troye has to offer in 2018.

You can watch Sivan perform My My My! Live on SNL on January 20th.
