Australian artist Troye Sivan will release his debut album Blue Neighbourhood on 4th December 2015 it has been announced.
Fans that pre-order the album will instantly receive album track Talk Me Down, a love song produced by Emile Haynie (Lana Del Ray, Eminem, Bruno Mars). The album announcement coincides with confirmation of long awaited tour dates for Australia, UK and Europe.
Blue Neighbourhood is the follow-up to Troye’s mini album Wild, which topped the iTunes charts in 57 countries. The six songs featured on that EP serve as act one on this expanded electronica opera that is Blue Neighbourhood.
Next week Troye will release the third video in his Blue Neighbourhood Trilogy.
“It’s all autobiographical,” says Troye of the album. “It takes place in both the suburbs of Perth where I’ve grown up, which I consider to be my blue neighbourhood, but then also in this fast-paced, crazy, whirlwind life that I’m now living in hotel rooms and planes. And it takes place inside the mind of a 20-year-old kid. I wanted to make sure that youthfulness was there; I worked mostly with really, really young people on this record.”
