Sivan, whose third studio album Something to Give Each Other will be released on October 13, recently sat down with Rolling Stone AU/NZ Editor-in-Chief Poppy Reid for multiple exclusive, candid chats in West Hollywood about the album, intimacy and more.
The cover story chronicles many of the ups and downs of Sivan’s still-young career, with the 28-year-old recalling his occasionally troubled times as a child YouTuber, through to dealing with the recent controversy around US television series The Idol in which he stars as ‘Xander’.
Sivan also delves into some of the most poignant moments in his career as a musician, revealing that while making his debut album Blue Neighbourhood he came close to pulling the pin.
Rolling Stone AU/NZ editor-in-chief, Poppy Reid, said: “The opportunity to get to know a genuine, homegrown international superstar is rare. Troye Sivan is one of them and his generous spirit was present during our entire time together — even when we discussed quite sensitive topics.
“With our chats taking place in his new hometown of LA, we got to see Troye in his element in the lead-up to the release of what will be his most commercially successful album yet.”
Of the photoshoot, Sivan said: “I just love collaboration across everything, that’s my favourite part of the creative process whether it’s with incredible hair stylists like Charlie [Le Mindu], or a photographer like Marcus [Cooper] who I’ve worked with before, I think just finding people that you can have that back and forth. I think that’s really what I’m addicted to because now it’s happening in all these different forms for me.”
The September-November edition, with Troye Sivan on the cover, reaches subscribers and hits newsstands in Australia and New Zealand on September 4.
