We’ve had the great pleasure of hearing exactly half of Troye Sivan‘s upcoming sophomore album Bloom now: From the spirited lead single “My! My! My!” to the somber “The Good Side” to the cheeky “Bloom” to the Ariana Grande-assisted “Dance To This” — and they’re all truly killer. There’s simply not a single dud in the set yet. Not one!
The Australian talent just dropped yet another cut from the collection called “Animal,” and this one is certainly no exception.
Crafted alongside Bram Inscore, Ariel Rechtshaid and frequent collaborators Allie X and LELAND, the track is as sultry and joyfully liberating as the rest of what we’ve already heard, but with a more down-tempo and brooding sound that recalls much of the work off of his debut Blue Neighbourhood.
“I want you all to myself/ Don’t leave none for nobody else/ I am an animal with you/ No angels could beckon me back/ And it’s hotter than hell where I’m at/ I am an animal with you,” Troye slowly croons above the lingering piano and spacey atmospherics. But the song really elevates after its first go round — and it actually does sound like he’s channeling some sort of creature in his delivery.
“Animal” is beautiful in its own right, but when packaged together with all the other songs we’ve been given, there’s no doubt that Bloom will wind up at the very top of this year’s “Best Of” list.
