EDITORS’ NOTES

Though Blue Neighbourhood is Troye Sivan’s debut, the talented young Aussie had established a devoted YouTube fandom well before the album’s 2015 release. Impeccably polished and beautifully produced, this set of sleek, moody electro-pop shares a candor and intimacy with Sivan’s vlogs. His rueful, soul-baring recollections color the moonlight throb of “SUBURBIA,” where, he sings, “dreams go to die.” On “HEAVEN,” against trippy synth wobbles, the openly gay performer struggles with heartache, coming out, and remaining true to himself.

WHY DID YOU RE-RELEASE THIS?!

i am so angry. this was ORIGINALLY the deluxe version, released in december. a few weeks ago i bought 8 or 9 songs off that album, which meant i only needed to spend $2 for the rest of the songs. i just now got another itunes card and i couldnt wait to get the rest of the songs. but i couldnt find them. so i bought one of the songs off this album and went to my music. apparently they were different albums. (also, for the record, PLEASE stick to caps lock. so much better.) i searched "blue neighbourhood deluxe" in the itunes store, but no results were found. did you really have to do a stupid re-release and remove your deluxe version from the itunes store?! now i have to spend loads of money on the songs i didnt have and its going to be very stressful trying to figure out what songs are on the deluxe and what songs are on the re-release. now i can't complete my album because it says its already "fully downloaded". thats bs. you better put that album back on itunes if you actually want people to listen to your music.

About Troye Sivan

Australia-based singer and actor Troye Sivan makes lyrical ambient electronic dance-pop. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995, Sivan moved to Perth, Australia with his family when he was two years old. Home-schooled, Sivan began singing and acting at a young age, but his biggest break came when he appeared as a young Wolverine in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A year later, he appeared in the South African film Spud. Starting in 2007, Sivan began making videos of himself singing, and uploaded them to various social media sites, eventually garnering over two million subscribers. Concurrent to his videos, Sivan also released two independently produced EPs: 2007's Dare to Dream and 2012's June Haverly. In 2013, he signed a recording contract with EMI Australia, and one year later released his third EP, TRXYE. The album hit the Top Ten in Canada, New Zealand, and the U.S. In 2015, Sivan returned with his fourth EP, WILD, which he described as an "opening installment" of the music he planned to release in the subsequent months. WILD included a pair of feature appearances (New Zealand's Broods, Australian rapper Tkay Maidza), and a trilogy of videos accompanied the album. His debut album, Blue Neighbourhood, was released in late 2015. In addition to the guests who appeared on his WILD EP, his full-length was also graced by Betty Who, Australian rapper Allday, and Blue Neighbourhood producer Alex Hope. The album peaked in the Top Ten in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States and was re-released as a deluxe edition that featured Alessia Cara on the single "Wild." In 2016, Blue Neighbourhood (The Remixes) was issued. The collection featured reimaginings by producers like Filous, Shift K3Y, and RAC, as well as acoustic and live versions of "Youth," "Wild," and "Happy Little Pill." After touring behind his debut, he returned to the studio to record a follow-up. In early 2018, he issued the single "My My My!" ~ Matt Collar
