"Take a trip into my garden / I’ve got so much to show ya"

UPDATE (June 6): Troye Sivan has finally released the music video for 'Bloom'.

In the video, directed by Bardia Zeinali, Troye is the very definition of serving looks. It's a 4 minute visual feast of colour and couture as Troye pouts and twirls around in incredibly beautiful and ever more decadent outfits. Watch the video below:

Troye Sivan has released a lyric video for 'Bloom' (May 3), the second single from his as-yet-untitled second album, the follow up to 2015's Blue Neighbourhood.

Produced by Oscar Holter, "Bloom" is a pulsating pop bop with a real ear worm chorus. The hypnotic video finds a virtual reality Troye, dressed in a vest and jeans, floating through a greenhouse which shifts in colour. Watch the video below:

Iconic.

So what's meaning behind 'Bloom'? Troye has claimed "it's about flowers" on his Twitter but it doesn't take a genius to realise that it's about something a little saucier.

In fact, in a now deleted tweet, Troye hinted at the real meaning behind the song "#BopsBoutBottoming".

Oh my, my, my!

'Take a trip into my garden', 'put gas into the motor' and 'we'll ride the rollercoaster' are all pretty obvious metaphors for sexy time. In fact, the use of flowers as a poetic device to discuss sex and, more specifically, anal sex has a long history. The music videos expands of this further with Robert Mapplethorpe-esque stills of flowers cut between shots of Troye dancing around in floral outfits.

Troye is continuing a grand tradition with his lyrics for 'Bloom' and we are 100% here for it. In fact, we're going to need more songs about bottoming, stat. It's #20GayTeen after all.

The full lyrics to Troye Sivan's 'Bloom':

Take a trip into my garden

I’ve got so much to show ya

The fountains and the waters

Are begging just to know ya

And it’s true, baby

I’ve been saving this for you, baby

I guess it’s something like a fun fair

Put gas into the motor

And boy I’ll meet you right there

We’ll ride the rollercoaster

Cause it’s true, babe

I been saving this for you, baby

(I need you to)

Tell me right before it goes down

(Promise me you’ll)

Hold my hand if I get scared now

(Might tell you to)

Take a second baby slow it down

You should know I, you should know I

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom) just for you

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song

Every time it comes on

I get this sweet desire

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Now it’s the perfect season

Yeah, let’s go for it this time

We’re dancing with the trees

and I’ve waited my whole life

It’s true, baby

I been saving this for you, baby

(I need you to)

Tell me right before it goes down

(Promise me you’ll)

Hold my hand if I get scared now

(Might tell you to)

Take a second baby slow it down

You should know I, you should know I

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom) just for you

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song

Every time it comes on

I get this sweet desire

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Just for you

I bloom just for you

I bloom just for you

Baby, baby, I’ve been saving this for you, baby

Baby, baby, I’ve been saving this for you, baby

(Yeah I boom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom) just for you

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Come on baby play me like a love song

Every time it comes on

I get this sweet desire

(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you

(I bloom), just for you

Just for you

I bloom just for you

I bloom just for you

Just for you

I bloom just for you

I bloom just for you
