Overall, the “Rush” video is a sexy celebration of queer party culture. It was directed by Gordon von Steiner, with choreography by Sergio Reis. Meanwhile, the song references certain “party favors” within gay culture like poppers, illicit substances, and sexual stimulants.
Sivan also officially announced his third studio album, Something to Give Each Other, with a release date set for Friday, October 13. This new album will follow 2015’s Blue Neighbourhood and 2018’s Bloom.
Sivan described the upcoming album as “something to give you – a kiss on a dancefloor, a date turned into a weekend, a crush, a winter, a summer. Party after party, after party after party. Heartbreak, freedom. Community, sisterhood, friendship. All that.”
Though we now have “Rush” as the lead single from Something to Give Each Other, further details about the album are still being kept under wraps.
