Troye Sivan Provides The Right Kind Of Musical Medicine During Isolation with ‘Take Yourself Home’!

Musical medicine is just what we need in this most uncertain time. Troye Sivan is one of the few artists moving forward with delivering new music during this unpredictable pandemic – and yes, we’re very much thankful for it.

The Australian pop star has just released the first taste of his forthcoming era: The appropriately titled “Take Yourself Home,” a dreamy, intimate tune originally set for release later in the year.

According to the press release, Troye considered the song in a new context as he headed home to Australia for isolation: “‘Take Yourself Home‘ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written,” he said in a statement. “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.”

The beauty of “Take Yourself Home” – written with his longtime collaborator Leland, Tayla Parx and Oscar Görres, who also produced the track – lies in the little details: the lonesome guitar plucks, the atmospheric synth pads, the distant vocal echoes and Troye‘s earnest delivery. Oh, and let’s not forget about that masterful unexpected, electronic breakdown (complete with a bit of cowbell, for good measure) at the end – pure gold!

This is certainly hitting that sweet spot during this time. Welcome back, Troye!
