The highly anticipated mini-album was released overnight and shot straight to #1 in home market Australia and is topping charts as territories release around the world, having already hit #1 in 41 countries on pre-order including Australia, New Zealand, United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Sweden, Russia as well as #2 in the UK.
“Wild was one of the last songs we wrote and I think it’s because before, I would have been too nervous to even let the session start heading into that poppier space. Finding that trust between us meant that we could stray further into the pop world and still feel sure that the song was going to be cool and authentic. Only once we knew the space, sound and the project so well, could we let ourselves explore that. Now it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written.” Troye says.
Wild reveals a real growth to the world, a six track showcase of Troye’s musical vision: dark, infectious pop music at its most organic. Wild is an opening installment, a 6 song keyhole that introduces us to a wider world of music to come from Sivan in the near future. And sooner than you think.
The stunning video for ‘WILD’, the first in the ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ trilogy, was directed by Tim Mattia (The Dead Weather, Coasts, Deap Vally) and shot on location at Kurnell in Sydney. The first part of a three piece narrative created by Troye, ‘WILD’ explores a relationship blossoming in childhood surrounded by the challenges of everyday life. Check it out below.
