(Los Angeles, CA—January 24, 2018) PLATINUM-certified independent singer, songwriter, producer, and pop visionary Lauv unveils new single “i’m so tired…” with Troye Sivan. The pair are set to perform the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on February 6th. Click HERE to listen!
Troye Sivan said on the song, “’i’m so tired…’ is a heartbreak song about an inescapable person. Lauv is such a great songwriter, and him and I were writing together for his project when the song came about. We ended up creating an accidental duet, and I couldn’t be happier to be on the song.”
Lauv added, “I’ve been a huge fan of Troye’s music and what he does for the world for years, so working with him was an absolute honor. When we wrote ‘i’m so tired…’ he just sounded too good singing it, so I think it was just natural to do the record together.”
The release of this single will be the last of Lauv’s before he heads back into the studio to record his debut album. Additionally, Lauv said, “This song is also the last song I’m going to be putting out until I have my debut album ready, so I figured we’d go out on a heartbroken banger vibe so it’s sad but fun.”
In celebration of their upcoming track, Lauv and Troye relaunched “Lauv Loves,” which is currently the #13 most followed artist curated Spotify playlist, to be a collaborative playlist. Renamed “Lauv x Troye Sivan: i’m so tired…”, the themed playlist features songs Lauv and Troye love to listen to when falling asleep.
