"Wild" (stylized as "WILD") is a song by Australian singer and songwriter Troye Sivan from his fourth extended play (EP), Wild (2015). It was written by Sivan, Alex Hope (songwriter) and a revised version featured a contribution from Alessia Cara. The song was released with the EP on 4 September 2015 and promoted as its lead single. It is also featured on Sivan's debut studio album, Blue Neighbourhood (2015).

The song reached number 16 on the ARIA Charts, becoming his second top 20 single and peaking within the top 40 in New Zealand. The song's accompanying music video was directed by Tim Mattia and released as part of Sivan's "Blue Neighbourhood" music video trilogy. The trilogy made up of "Wild", "Fools" and "Talk Me Down" was filmed in the Sydney suburb of Kurnell, New South Wales.

Alessia Cara re-release

A new version of the song was re-released on 23 June 2016, featuring a new verse from Canadian singer and songwriter Alessia Cara.[1] The concept came about after Sivan met Cara at several music events. He had covered Cara's hit single "Here" for a live radio show and she responded with a cover of his track "Youth".[2] In phone text conversations, the two performers joked about which song was next. Cara told Sivan her favourite song of his was "Wild" and shortly afterwards wrote and recorded a verse in a European studio. When she sent it to Sivan, says his response was: "This is so good, we have to put it out."[2]

The re-released new version reached number 26 in its own right on the Australian ARIA Charts. On 22 July 2016, a new video for the single was released on Sivan's Vevo and YouTube channel. The video features both singers and was directed by Malia James and produced by Taylor Vandegrift and Danny Lockwood. It was filmed in Toronto, Canada, near Cara's home.
