Falling asleep? Wake up—Lauv and Troye Sivan’s newly-released collaboration is everything.
Lauv and Sivan dropped their joint single “I’m So Tired…” this morning following days of teasing it online, starting with the “nothing implied whatsoever” release of a sleep-inspired playlist.

The mellow bop has the two stars and long-time friends sharing stories of heartbreak and loneliness brought on by hearing love songs everywhere they go.
The track also shouts out two of Sivan’s favourite artists, Coldplay and Lorde, referencing the song titles “Hurts Like Heaven” and “Buzzcut Season” in the lyrics.

While Sivan is currently dating model Jacob Bixenman, we suspect the track might be inspired in part by Lauv’s recent split from his “There’s No Way” collaborator Julia Michaels. Michaels, who releases her new EP Inner Monologue Part 1 this week, shared a cryptic photo with a Lauv lookalike on her Instagram, also sporting his signature blue on her shoes.
While we await the official music video, Lauv and Sivan are taking turns (literally) in the driver’s seat for the track’s visuals, with each artist posting a separate video on their respective channels.
The pair are set to perform their collab for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live February 6.
