The “Rush” singer felt truly inspired while spending quality time with a hookup.

We're still feeling the rush.

Troye Sivan is currently sending his devoted fans into a frenzy as he gears up for the release of his eagerly anticipated album, Something to Give Each Other. The singer-songwriter recently kickstarted this new musical era with the irresistibly catchy single, "Rush," accompanied by a music video that had everyone buzzing.

In an in-depth interview with Rolling Stone Australia, Sivan delved into the creative inspiration behind his third studio album. In fact, the singer shared a poignant moment that sparked the project's inception. While reflecting on a past hookup, Sivan declared, “We were laying in bed and he was like, ‘This is one of life’s greatest pleasures, connecting with people in this way.’”

He added, “Obviously the hook-up is fun. But he’s like, ‘Even if I never see you again, we get to have this really special moment together.’” This sentiment lit a creative fire within Sivan and served as a pivotal starting point for the album.

Sivan’s upcoming album – described by Capitol Records as "a celebration of sex, dance, sweat, community, queerness, love, and friendship" – promises to be a vibrant and multifaceted exploration of life's pleasures and connections.

Recently, the Australian sensation opened up about his own experiences with dating apps, revealing that he too grapples with dating app fatigue. He pointed out that these apps often create an illusion of actively pursuing one's dating life while actually keeping people isolated on their couches. His advice: meet people in real life to establish genuine connections.

Moreover, Sivan also shared his thoughts on the cancelation of Sam Levinson's HBO drama series, The Idol, in which he had a role. Despite the show's premature ending, he emphasized the enduring importance of family support, describing the comfort of knowing that his family in Australia would always be there for him.

Sivan's new album, Something to Give Each Other, is set to drop on October 13th. Fans can hardly contain their excitement as they anticipate an album that promises to be a celebration of life's most profound and joyous moments.
