Troye Sivan’s Second Album: Title, Tracklist, Release Date & Everything We Know So Far
21 February 2018, 15:24
Read all the info about Troye's new album, including the singles 'My My My' and 'The Good Side'.
The wait is finally over. Troye Sivan has started releasing new songs from his new, as-yet-untitled second album, the follow up to Blue Neighbourhood. Troye dropped the video for 'My, My, My!', the lead single, at the beginning of January. The single was co-written with regular collaborator Leland and the video was directed by Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Lorde). Watch the video below:
Troye followed that up today (18/01) with another new song, 'The Good Side'. You can listen to the song here:
Now we have the (excellent) lead single, what else do we know about #TS2? We've been keeping track of social media posts about the album by Troye and his collaborators to see what we can find out. Here's everything we know so far...
What's the release date for Troye Sivan's new album?
Now 'My, My, My!' has been released to the world, it is likely that an album will be following shortly. For the moment, it looks like Troye's record label are waiting to see how well 'MMM' performs. If they decide to release another single before release, that means an album would come in April or May at the earliest.
In a recent interview with Elvis Duran, Troye explained that, at present, there isn't a set date for release and that he is still making changes to some of the songs. "I have no idea...I know when I would like for it to come out but I'm still making little changes and stuff like that so it's not completely done yet."
Will there be any collaborations?
The big news Troye unveiled recently is that Ariana Grande will appear on the album in a soon to be released duet. SHOOK.
Troye's last album had very few features and even the ones that did feature were fairly low-key. However, Troye's status has risen considerably since then and he's likely to be in a better position to receive and request collaborations. Since the album first came out Troye reworked 'Wild' with Alessia Cara as well as a feature on Martin Garrix's 'There For You', so he's obviously in the mood for collabs.
One guest that could feature is Allie X. They previously worked together on 'Talk Me Down' and 'Lost Boy' on Blue Neighbourhood. More recently, Allie tweeted an image from the studio and tagged Troye. .
However, gays across the world will be disappointed to learn that Troye wrote songs with Carly Rae Jepsen for the new record but unfortunately they will not make the final tracklist. In an interview with PopBuzz, Troye said he wrote a number of songs with 'Call Me Maybe' singer but they didn't fit the final sound of the record. Watch the interview below.
Who's producing the new album?
Considering he's already posted a video of himself with Alex Hope, it's likely that Alex will feature on the album in some capacity. However, Troye worked with multiple producers for Blue Neighbourhood, most notably with Jack Antonoff (Bleachers) on 'Heaven', so there might be multiple producers and co-writers on the final tracklist. It's worth noting that Troye took a trip to Sweden earlier this year (no gigs or promo) which happens to be home to super-producers like Max Martin and RedOne. Is Troye planning on releasing some radio hits? Quite possibly. Oscar Gorres, rumoured to have produced 'My My My!' is also based in Sweden.
More recently, Troye posted pictures of himself with Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat (well, their dogs) in the studio. Blanco has worked on mega-hits like Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" and Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" while Cashmere Cat has worked with Halsey, The Weeknd and Francis And The Lights recently. All of which is to say that the second album sounds very promising indeed!
Songwriter and now artist-in-his-own-right Leland is also considered a shoo-in for the album. He co-wrote 'My, My, My!' but it's not impossible to imagine he might actually feature as a guest too.
For 'The Good Side', Troye worked with Ariel Rechtshaid, Bram Inscore & Jam City.
What is Troye's new album called? New song titles?
As with most big pop records, this will be a closely guarded secret until Troye let's you know himself. Unlike artists such as Halsey or The 1975 who tend to tease lyrics and details many months (even years!) before the record comes out, Troye tends to keep his cards close to his chest. Just think of it as one big surprise when all the details are revealed in 2018.
One song title we do know is Katy Perry-esque banger called 'Bloom' which Troye hinted at in a recent interview with PopJustice. So that sounds promising...
Will there be tour dates?
Yes, 100%! None announced so far but you can bet Troye will be in all the usual places come 2018.
Troye has been very tight-lipped about his progress in interviews. Thankfully, Troye has been a little bit more forthcoming on social media.

Troye also posted a clip with Alex Hope in the studio. Alex co-wrote and produced three songs on Blue Neighbourhood: 'Wild', 'Cool' and 'Blue'.
Oh, and lots of dog action in the studio too.
