After the release of "My My My!", which showed him transforming from an indie-pop sensation to a fully fledged hard-hitting pop star, Troye Sivan is back on his grind once again. The artist has shared "Bloom", a much-teased new single from his forthcoming sophomore album, and it just might be another subtle pop classic in the making.

Troye described the new track as "'Katy Perry Teenage Dream' pop" in an interview with Popjustice, and it lives up to that comparison. "Bloom" plays just as light and wistful as its seeming inspiration, his voice gliding above gentle synths and melodic acoustic guitars, but it's also just a little bit more clever. The song is as proudly queer as its predecessor, but accomplishes it in a more subversive way—we all know what's really blooming.

The new single comes accompanied with a lyric video showing an animated Troye blooming in his own way, as created by Jason Ebeyer. At this point, it's hard not to argue that Troye Sivan's star is blooming. Watch and listen below.
