In a burst of creative energy, the multi-talented Troye Sivan graced his eager audience with “Got Me Started,” an electrifying single that offers a taste of what’s to come in his upcoming album, “Something to Give Each Other.” This release comes hot on the heels of his earlier chart-topping sensation, “Rush.”
Troye was effusive in his excitement about seamlessly integrating a sample from the 2008 hit “Shooting Stars” by Australia’s Bag Raiders, a musical gem that significantly influenced his latest composition. He applauded the ingenious production style of Ian Kirkpatrick, who manipulated the vocals by first slowing them down and then ramping up the tempo for the chorus, yielding a sound so distinctive and appealing that it immediately resonated with the artist.
The accompanying music video for “Got Me Started” unfolds against the bustling and lively backdrop of Bangkok, Thailand and with Troye Sivan’s nude body serving as a perfect canvas to amplify the song’s inherent energy.
During a recent interview, Troye generously shared insights into the song’s deeply personal meaning, offering fans a glimpse into the whirlwind of emotions and the creative spark that fueled this latest musical opus.
