Troye Sivan Reveals New Album Release Date, Cover Art After Taylor Swift Concert

 Following a surprise performance with Taylor Swift at her Reputation Tour’s Rose Bowl stop on Saturday night, Troye Sivan revealed the title, release date and cover art of his forthcoming album, the follow-up to his breakout 2015 hit Blue Neighborhood.

The South African-born crooner’s latest is titled Bloom (it’s also the title of the album’s third single—an anthem about bottoming), and it will be released Aug. 31. The cover art is a clean, elegant black & white headshot by French photographer Hedi Slimane.

On Saturday, Sivan, 22 and Swift, 28 surprised an audience of 60,000 with a performance of the former’s single “My, My, My.” Sivan sported tour Reputation Tour merchandise.

Last week, Sivan told The New York Times that Bloom is an "album of tells, flamboyantly, defiantly expressed."

Sivan will make his big screen acting debut later this year in Joel Edgerton’s coming-out and coming-of-age drama Boy, Erased opposite Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Lucas Hedges.

Which Former Gay Porn Star Appears in Taylor Swift's 'Delicate'?

Whoever casts Taylor Swift's music videos may not check their past acting credentials whatsoever, as her latest one for "Delicate" features a former gay porn star who was pretty popular on Randy Blue only a couple of years ago.

Kevin Falk, who appeared in videos for Randy Blue and one for Straight Guys for Gay Eyes, scored a major role in Taylor's latest videos as one of her security guards.  He is seen throughout the video while she dances emphatically in a blue dress. 

This isn't the first time Taylor has cast a gay porn star in her video, unbeknownst her or not.  Mike De Marko was seen dancing in her number one hit song "We Are Never Getting Back Together" a couple of years back.  Maybe she has a thing for smoking hot gay dudes? We aren't complaining. See the full video here

Kevin isn't the first gay porn performer to appear in a major music video this year either, as Cockyboys star Justin Brody (aka Brody Blomqvist).appears in Troye SIvan's video for "My My My." 

Which gay porn star would you like to see star in a music video, and better yet, who with?
