WATCH: Troye Sivan & Lauv debut ‘I’m So Tired’ on Kimmel Live
The song is about the anguish of getting over an ex, when everyone else around seems to be lovey-dovey.
Sivan namechecks Coldplay’s ‘Hurts Like Heaven’ and Lorde’s ‘Buzzcut Season’ before he and Lauv double-slam “I’m so tired of love songs/Tired of love songs/Tired of love songs, tired of love.”
The Kimmel show plays up the lyrics with a set that looks like a grassy park on a sunny day where three couples are smooching.
The single debuted at #62 on the latest TMN Hot 100.
It was Sivan’s return to the stage after his Bloom world tour took a holiday break.
It re-starts with a 15-date of Europe in Glasgow on February 23.
Lauv’s next bout of touring is in May when the closest he comes to Australia is Singapore and Manila.
Lauv said of working with the Australian, “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 honour.
“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.”
Sivan has generated 5 billion global total streams (across audio & video), with 3.8 billion of them audio streams.
‘Youth’ is at 1 billion total streams.
The Bloom album is about to go gold while the debut Blue Neighbourhood is platinum.
