With over 10 billion career streams to date, and one year since the release of his globally revered body of work ‘In A Dream’, Australian pop icon Troye Sivan returns with a brand new single, ‘Angel Baby’.
Written by Troye Sivan, Jason Evigan, Michael Pollack, Sarah Hudson and JHart, ‘Angel Baby’ is an intimate ballad, full of yearning and romance realized in cinematic 90s synth glory. It is destined to be an emotive and anthemic highlight of his forthcoming live shows.
“‘Angel Baby’ is my crack at an adoring, doting, love-struck, mega pop, gay, power ballad. I thought we needed a few more of those.” Says Troye.
‘Angel Baby’ is released in line with Troye’s highly anticipated return to the stage as part of the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards festivities, which took place on the 12th of September in the U.S.A (Australia Monday, 13th September). Troye also gives his debut performance of ‘Angel Baby’ today at New York City’s Terminal 5 as part of MTV & Extra Gum Present: Push to the VMAs, along with performing ‘You’ with Tate McRae. Released in April 2021, Troye’s collaboration with Regard and Tate McRae became a top 10 hit at US radio, hit the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, and has amassed over 200 million global streams to date.
Troye’s sophomore album, Bloom (EMI), 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 is an ambassador for the Pasha de Cartier watch alongside Rami Malek, Willow Smith, Maisie Wiliams and Jackson Wang.
USA Today placed his 2020 EP, In A Dream, on its list of “10 albums you need to hear this month,” noting that “Aside from Taylor Swift…no other artist has better captured our quarantine blues than Troye Sivan.” The EP included the hits “Take Yourself Home” and “Easy.” Troye later collaborated with Kacey Musgraves on a new version of “Easy,” which featured Mark Ronson.
His numerous awards include 2 ARIA Awards, an APRA award, 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 Troye 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 Troye co-wrote, featured on the BTS album, Map of The Soul: 7, which debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., Korea, Australia and around the world.
