For Dazed Digital's Texts series, Troye Sivan
has recited Sufjan Stevens
' "Mystery Of Love," the song Stevens penned for the Call Me By Your Name
soundtrack. The song was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song but lost to Coco's
"Remember Me," however it still gained a ton of positive recognition. Stevens also performed it live at the award show backed by St. Vincent, Chris Thile, James McAlister, and Casey Foubert.
It's a gorgeous song that we fell in love with at the time of its release, but it just got even better with Sivan's twist. The Australian singer recited it as spoken word poetry, which really lets us focus in on the beauty of the lyrics. The clip was produced, directed, and edited by Bec Evans. Sivan has released two singles as of late, "My My My!" and "The Good Side." He's confirmed that a sophomore album is on the way but details are still unknown.
