Troye Sivan Gets the 'The Good Side' of Things in New Ballad
2018 is off to a great start for singer Troye Sivan.
Last week, he released his single and video for “My My My!,” which trended worldwide with over 25 million streams. The video, directed by Grant Singer (Lorde, The Weeknd), also became the No. 1 trending video on YouTube.
Well, the young pop star is back with another song, the slower and more acoustic “The Good Side.” He announced the new track via Twitter yesterday.

The guitar-infused ballad with lovely late-arriving synths comes from his upcoming sophomore album, due out this spring. In it, he sings about his acknowledgement of his wrongdoings in a relationship -- which many fans believe was the same relationship he was singing about on his debut album Blue Neighbourhood.
Although he apologizes and sympathizes for his faults, he says he still "got the good side of things": "I got the good side of life/ Travelled the universe twice/ So many thoughts I wanted to share/ But I didn't call because it wouldn't be fair."
