Singer Troye Sivan released his latest single from his upcoming album, Bloom.

The song, Animal, is an 80s synth jam and its slow, building aesthetic washes over you.

Sivan himself called it one of his favorite song he’s ever written. He also revealed his inspiration behind it, in a coy, tongue-in-cheek manner: ‘I wanted to make an epic, timeless love song about how whipped i am.’

The tweet created quite a stir among fans, not unlike when Sivan revealed his song Bloom is about bottoming.

Many fans think this new song is about Sivan’s relationship with model Jacob Bixenman.

Animal is the third single he’s released from Bloom, following My My My, Bloom, and Dance to This.

Bloom comes out at the end of the month on 31 August.
