Troye Sivan revealed the video for his new single, Heaven, pulled from his album Blue Neighbourhood.
The star has spoke out on the meaning of the video, which features archive footage of the Gay Civil Rights Movement.
The star purposely released the video in line with Donald Trump being Inaugurated in the US.
Speaking to Dazed, Sivan stated “I think at first I was a little heartbroken for the world over the results of this election. I feel like I’ve moved on toward accepting the result.”
“I’ve also moved on toward accepting that my community is going to have to bind together stronger than ever before and fight harder than ever before to continue our journey towards complete acceptance. This video is the first step in that (direction) for me.”
The video for “Heaven” shows the struggle people have already gone through with Sivan holding onto a topless man throughout whilst singing.
The star added in the description of the video “we have always been here. we will always be here.”
“this video is dedicated to all who’ve come before me and fought for our cause and those who now continue the fight. in dark and light times, let’s love forever. love, troye x”
When asked if it is important for LGBTQ+ artists to speak out, Troye said: “It’s a personal choice when one does or does not speak out on, but I would recommend that we all speak louder than ever and not become complacent.”
