It's been a long haitus since the smash success of his 2014 debut, In The Lonely Hour, but new tunes should be out shortly: the British singer worked out tracks with Timbaland this spring. Word has it that he's (finally) dropping a new album this fall.

The Aussie singer who got his start on YouTube debuted his latest hit, with British DJ Martin Garrix, "There For You," at Coachella this year, and there's word that Sivan may have a big project in 2017. Aside from his music, Sivan has been a vocal LGBTQ activist.

The ex-Disney star debuted a mellow new sound with a fresh track, "Malibu," in May. It's a far cry from 2014's Bangerz and 2015's Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, her project with the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne. Her newest album Younger Now dropped this fall.
