Sivan made his return to music last month with new single ‘Rush’ and announced ‘Something To Give Each Other’ – his first full-length album in five years, out October 13.
The rework of ‘Rush’ features a brand-new second verse from PinkPantheress. “Haven’t done this since September / Right around then you were at my door / I can barely still remember / How did we end up on the floor?” she sings. Meanwhile, Hyunjin provides new vocals for the song’s second pre-chorus and hook.
The new teaser comes just days after Sivan dropped a teaser for the upcoming remix featuring just PinkPantheress. This month, he also released a collection of ‘Rush’ remixes from artists Big Freedia, Punctual, Tom Santa and Leland.
Meanwhile, the collaboration with Hyunjin comes about two months after Sivan publicly expressed his attraction for the K-pop star on TikTok. In June, the Australian singer had a compilation of fancam videos featuring Hyunjin, shortly after meeting him at a Versace show in May.
However, Sivan has since shared that he received “death threats” after posting the TikTok about Hyunjin. I got a lot of nice messages… but I also got a lot of death threats and stuff like that. So, I am pulling the brakes on that,” Sivan told Apple Music.
Sivan is set to drop his first new album in over five years this October, following 2018’s ‘Bloom’. Titled ‘Something To Give Each Other’, the singer has called the upcoming record “a celebration of sex, dance, sweat, community, queerness, love and friendship”.
