Troye Sivan's New Single, "Take Yourself Home," Embodies the Mood of Isolation and Longing

Stream the new track here.

Troye Sivan has just dropped his latest single titled, “Take Yourself Home.” Originally set to debut later this year, Sivan decided to release the track early in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Australian artist explained in a press release:

“‘Take Yourself Home’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. 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 song’s pre-save page, lyric video and other visual elements were all produced by freelance artists that Sivan hired. He realized that many freelancers are currently struggling to find work due to COVID-19, so he announced via his Instagram account saying: “Freelance artists (graphic designers, animation artists) hmu I want to work with you and take the money I would be spending on music videos and give it to you.”

To further aid those affected by the outbreak, Sivan has launched three T-shirts on his website designed by artists Jack Taylor Lovatt and Lanning who he also found on Instagram. All proceeds will go to the World Health Organization‘s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and Spotify’s COVID-19 Music Relief project.

Listen to Sivan’s latest track below and let us know what you think of it in the comments. Elsewhere in music, check out Jeremy Zucker’s music video for his latest single, “not ur friend.”
