After showing off his dance-pop chops on “My, My, My!” Troye Sivan has returned with a second and much softer taste of his sophomore album. The 22-year-old will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on January 20th.
On “The Good Side,” Sivan channels Sufjan Stevens’ sorrowful balladry. The tender, acoustic song offers up an apology from Sivan. “But I sympathize and I recognize/And baby I apologize/ That I got the good side/ The good side of things,” he sings on the chorus.
