Records released Troye Sivan’s new single, “Take Yourself
Home.” Download / stream HERE.
Originally set for release later in the year, Troye considered
the song in a new context as he headed home to Australia and
a period of isolation.
“‘Take Yourself Home’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever
written,” says Troye Sivan. “The song is kind of a pep
talk with yourself and the place you’re from. Grappling with
your place in the world. I write these songs as a diary entry,
then as life and places change and relationships change, songs
can take on a new meaning entirely. Clearly that has happened
for this song, with what is going on in the world right now.”

that many freelance artists have struggled to find work in the
face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Troye put out a call for
creatives to develop visual elements for the rollout of “Take
Yourself Home.” In an Instagram post, he said, “FREELANCE
ARTISTS (GRAPHIC DESIGNERS, ANIMATION ARTISTS) HMU I WANT TO WORK
WITH YOU AND TAKE THE MONEY I WOULD BE SPENDING ON MUSIC VIDEOS
AND GIVE IT TO YOU.”
Featured in such publications as PAPER, i.D., Buzzfeed,
NME and Billboard, the response was overwhelming.
The visuals for the pre-save page, lyric video and other elements
were sourced from artists who responded to Troye’s solicitation.

Troye has also launched three t-shirts, designed by @jacktaylorlovatt
and @Lanning and sourced via Instagram, with all proceeds to be
donated to WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and Spotify’s
COVID-19 Music Relief project.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is leading and coordinating
the global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and
respond to the pandemic. Learn more about their efforts HERE.
The Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project recommends verified
organizations that offer financial relief to those in the music
community. The project is currently partnering with MusiCares,
PRS Foundation, Help Musicians and Unison Benevolent Fund, and
is adding more partners worldwide. Read more HERE.
Troye co-wrote “Take Yourself Home” with frequent
collaborator Leland (Selena Gomez, BTS, Charli XCX), Oscar Görres
(The Weeknd, MARINA, Tove Lo) and Tayla Parx (Khalid, Ariana Grande).
It was produced by Görres, who also helmed Troye’s Gold-certified
hit “My My My!” from Bloom and “I’m so tired…,” his Platinum
collaboration with Lauv. “Take Yourself Home” perfectly
captures a mood of isolation and longing. The song builds from
a lilting opening refrain with Troye’s trademark melancholy
into expansive, rave-like choruses with a surprise deep-electro
moment to close.
While social distancing at home in Australia, Troye continues
to connect with fans. Last week, he appeared on #HAPPYATHOME:
Live!, TikTok’s global livestream series.
In his career to date, Troye has amassed more than 6.7
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
” 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 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, 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 last month.
