Troye Sivan teases new single Rush, part of album produced by Max Martin and A.G Cook

The Australian multi-hyphenate hasn't released a project since 2021's intimate In A Dream.

Troye Sivan has teases his first album in 5 years with a forthcoming new single, Rush. 

The Australian multi-hyphenate hasn't releases a project since 2021's languid In A Dream EP, and his last studio album was the studied pop of 2018's Bloom. 

But Troye does seem to be aiming for the big leagues this time - revealing in several interviews that he's recruited a hit team of collaborators for his third LP, including Max Martin and his WolfCousins cohort (Troye's most frequent collaborator is WolfCousins memher OzGo) as well as Charli XCX's creative director and PC Music affiliate A.G Cook, which seems to signpost that the forthcoming record with balance the world of both commercial and avante-garde pop. 

The first single from this album, Rush, is due soon, and Troye has already teased the release via his Instagram.

On the album's half a decade delay, Troye said: “I didn’t mean to take 5 years to make this album – Bloom tour happened (lmk if you came), then i started working on it, then cockbig19 (COVID-19), then The Idol, always working on the album in all the moments between..and now here we are.

"Enough excuses now. Enough saying ‘soon’, this is for YOU and it starts NOWWWW."

One of the few out male pop stars of his generation, Troye first came up via YouTube, before pivoting to Lana Del Rey-esque baroque pop with his 2015 concept record Blue Neighbourhood (that album's most successful single in the UK was Wild, which reached Number 62, while Youth went Top 20 in the US).

But the real breakthrough came with Bloom in 2018, where Troye rode a wave of several queer pop artists releasing their best-ever material in the span of 12 months; including Years & Years' Palo Santo and Hayley Kiyoko's underrated  Curious

Bloom managed to chart at Number 10 on the Official Albums Chart, and contained the strut-worthy lead single My! My! My! and the Katy Perry-esque title track (just don't ask what it's about).

Since then, Troye has dabbled in several collabs, hitting the Top 10 of the Official Singles Chart for the first time with Lauv on I'm So Tired. In 2021, his slow-burning banger You with Regard and Tate McRae reached Number 46.

Troye can also be seen starring in HBO's controversial new pop star dramedy The Idol, starring The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp. 

Rush releases soon via EMI Australia.
