It looks like Troye Sivan has settled on “Heaven” as the next single from critically-acclaimed debut LP, Blue Neighbourhood. At least, in Australia. The proof? The 21-year-old’s moving collaboration with Betty Who is already gracing the airwaves at home and the official audio has been added to his YouTube. It’s a wise choice. After comparatively upbeat singles “Youth” and “Wild,” the synth ballad is more reflective of the album’s deep introspection.

“Without losing a piece of me, how do I get to heaven?” Troye asks in the chorus. “Without changing a part of me, how do I get to heaven?” The song is about the pop star’s battle to reconcile his religion and homosexuality — a subject he has talked about at length in interviews. Co-written by Jack Antonoff, Grimes and Alex Hope, “Heaven” is a great example of Troye’s ability to take a very specific issue and make it accessible (and relatable) to a much wider audience. Listen to the ballad below.
