Troye Sivan has released the video for his new single Bloom and it is fantastic

Described as a “gay anthem for bottoms”, the new single is the second from his upcoming new album and it is one of the best songs right now!

In an interview with Dazed and Confused, the YouTube sensation teased that the song is about bottoming saying: “It’s 100 per cent about flowers! That’s all it is.

“Call it whatever you wanna call it. I wanna play that song at every Pride. There’s almost a radicalism in just truth, you know?

“The most radical thing that I can do is share how happy I am.”

The lyrics include: “It’s true, babe/ I’ve been saving this for you/ 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 bloom, I bloom just for you.”

And it is definitely going to be a hit in every G.A.Y around the world for the next foreseeable future.

Troye is currently gracing one of two Attitude covers – which are available in print and digital formats – and revealed in his exclusive interview his upcoming album is “definitely intimate”.

He said: “The album is definitely intimate. I thought, ‘I have to be honest about what’s going on in my life’. I wanted it to feel grimy and sexy.

“I think the first album was a much younger album. It was like coming out, leaving home, first relationship and first break-up, all of that stuff was in there.

“And this time round, I just feel a little bit more grown up and as if I’m having a lot more fun.

“I feel really happy and that, I think, is coming through.”
