Troye Sivan has joined forces with Pnau for a new collaborative track, ‘You Know What I Need’.
It follows a series of collaborations for Sivan this year, who joined forces with Jay Som on ‘Trouble’, and Gordi on ‘Wait’ in early 2022. The Australian singer-songwriter recently teased that his third album is “almost done” – his last LP release was 2018’s ‘Bloom’.
PNAU’s Nick Littlemore has shared: “Working with Troye again has been amazing! When we wrote this song we had no idea that we would get so lucky to have Troye Sivan singing and bringing his unbridled creativity to the world of PNAU.” Sivan added: “I’m so happy this song is coming out just before the Australian summer – it sounds like a beach festival to me and I am stoked to have it out”.
The track has arrived alongside an AI-animated music video, which focuses on an otherworldly and trippy visual of Sivan – video producer Kuba Matyka explains, “The brief was crazy from the beginning – make it look like a DMT trip inspired by the Stargate sequence from ‘2001: Space Odyssey’. I mean, this is the best brief we’ve ever got, and we recently used a brain-computer interface to develop real-time live visuals for Netflix and Hania Rani, so we’re used to weird and crazy stuff.”
