‘Shiny pop love’: Years & Years celebrate LGBT love in steamy vid


Pop princes Years & Years have re-released their single Desire now featuring Tove Lo and complete with a shiny new video. 

And according to frontman Olly Alexander, the new video is looking to celebrate the entire spectrum of sexuality. 

"Most of the pop videos I’ve seen that have any male and female interaction are usually centred around a romance, and that’s great," said Olly in an open letter to Facebook. 

"I am all for romance, but let’s face it there are a lot of other sexualities and identities that are well deserving of some shiny pop video love."

The openly gay singer and actor had wanted to embrace his sexuality through music for some time. 

"I’ve been wanting to make a video with some of my queer family for a long time and Desire felt like the right time to do it.

"I wanted the video to feel sexy. Everyone has a different definition of what they find sexy, so why do we so often get given one version of what sexy is time and time again?

"Is there a rulebook for men and women on how to feel sexy or what sexy is?

For me, whoever it is, two women, two men, a group of gender-queer people, it’s all cute. It can all be a positive and a joyful expression of sexiness and sexuality, you don’t have to be a specific gender to enjoy it.
