Troye Sivan Discusses 'Youth' Single Inspiration

(Radio.com) After releasing a series of EPs over the years, Australian singer/songwriter Troye Sivan has finally released his debut full-length album, Blue Neighborhood. The album's latest single is called "Youth," and in an interview with Radio.com, Sivan notes that he's shared a lot of his youth with his fans.

Not only is he a singer and an actor, but he is also something of a YouTube star thanks to his video blogs: he's posted over a hundred of them, and boasts millions of views.

"The lyric that we kind of started with was, 'My youth is yours.' That kind of sprung a few different [ideas] in my mind." As someone who has grown up on the internet - you can go back and watch videos of me from when I was 12 - I've sort of given my youth, online, to the public."

But there's an aspect of the song that people who don't have millions of YouTube followers can identify with. "The idea of getting into a relationship when you're young, and waking up when you're 25, and you've given all of your young years to a particular person, that was super romantic and cool to me. And we started writing a song about leaving everything and running away and having absolutely no idea where you were going, or what you were going to do in the future, or whether this person is just going to be with you for two days and just be a fling, or is it going to be someone who you are going to spend the rest of your life with. And having all of those questions and still not caring about any of the answers because you're young and you don't have any responsibilities." Read more here.
