On August 21, Capitol Records will release ‘In A Dream’, Troye Sivan’s new six-song concept EP. To announce its arrival, the singer has shared the second track, “Easy,” an infectious plea to set a relationship back on course, which you can check out below.
“A story that’s still unfolding, this small collection of songs explores an emotional rollercoaster period in my life when the feelings and thoughts were most shockingly fresh,” Troye Sivan explains, considering ‘In A Dream’. “Revisiting these songs and moments is tough, but I’m proud of this music and excited to have it out in the world.”
Sivan recorded five of the EP’s six songs with producer Oscar Görres (The Weeknd, MARINA, Tove Lo) between Stockholm and Los Angeles, just prior to the lockdown. The lead off track, “Take Yourself Home,” trended at #1 on Twitter worldwide following its release earlier this year and has now attained over 76 million cumulative global streams. The New York Times hailed “Take Yourself Home” as an “understatedly lush quasi-soul thumper.” PAPER said, “It’s perhaps the first great song to come out of our collective apocalyptic state of mind during the COVID-19 outbreak.”
During his career to date, Troye Sivan has amassed nearly eight billion combined global streams. His sophomore album, Bloom (Capitol Records), was named as one of the best albums of 2018 by critics at Rolling Stone, USA Today, Billboard, OUT, NPR Music, The Guardian and numerous other publications. Time said, “Troye Sivan is the perfect pop star.” He was recently named as one of five ambassadors to launch the Pasha de Cartier watch.
His numerous awards include a Billboard Music Awards trophy, three MTV Europe Music awards and two GLAAD Media wins. “Revelation” – his collaboration with Jónsi for the film Boy Erased, which Sivan co-starred in – was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song – Motion Picture and shortlisted for an Oscar. “Louder Than Bombs,” a track Sivan co-wrote, is featured on the new BTS album, Map of The Soul: 7, which debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., Korea, Australia and around the world.
