Troye Sivan has shared a performance of his latest single, ‘Take Yourself Home’, live from home.
The performance was premiered on April 20 via YouTube livestream. The video cuts together shots of Sivan and his four-piece band playing the song separately, with occasional effects.

Mid-way through the performance, Sivan took a moment to plug charity t-shirts he had designed with creators Jack Taylor Lovatt and Lanning Sally to mark the release of the singles. All proceeds from the t-shirt sales will be donated to the WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and Spotify’s COVID-19 Music Relief project.
‘Take Yourself Home’ was released in early April with an accompanying lyric music video. It was the pop singer’s first release of 2020. The video was created with the help of some freelance creators Sivan sourced through social media.
“[Take Yourself Home] is kind of a pep talk with yourself and the place you’re from. Grappling with your place in the world,” Sivan said in a statement.

“I write these songs as a diary entry, then as life and places change and relationships change, songs can take on a new meaning entirely. Clearly that has happened for this song with what is going on in the world right now.”
