Born in Yorkshire, England,YUNGBLUD (aka Dominic Harrison) is a multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. The 23-year-old artist is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today. Bound by a love for his brilliantly outspoken breed of rock-and-roll music, thatcommunity has witnessed YUNGBLUD’srise from a struggling musician living in a Northern England council flat to a global superstarhailedby Rolling Stoneas a “pop-punk rebel on a mission” following the releaseof hisself-titled EPand his full-length 2018 debut,21stCentury Liability. In 2019, YUNGBLUD released Live in Atlantaand the hope for the underrated youthEP, which debuted in the top 10 on the UK Official Albums chartand containedthe hit single “original me” feat. Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. YUNGLBUD has garnered over 1.4B streams worldwide with 427M total in US. Over the years, YUNGBLUD has performed to sold-out crowds in over20 countries and played some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Vans Warped Tour.
Beginning as a modern bedtime prayer and ending with a tender goodnight message to his fans, the song is anchored by bristling guitars that echo the mounting pressures that his generation faces. Chartinga course from inner turmoil to self-acceptance, YUNGBLUD creates a soaring, transcendent anthem in the process. Heco-produced the track with longtime collaboratorsChris Greatti (Poppy, Grimes) andZakk Cervini(Bishop Briggs, Machine Gun Kelly).
Doubling down on the raw vulnerability first glimpsed on his powerhouse 2018 debut album,21st Century Liability, and his 2019 EP, the underrated youth,Weird! is YUNGBLUD’smost emotionally complex body of work to date.He recorded itat studios in London and Los Angeles with Cervini,Greattiand another frequent collaborator, Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Bullet For My Valentine, Massive Attack).True toYUNGBLUD’sfierce refusal to box himself in, Weird! embodies a wildly eclectic collage of sound: Queen-inspired harmonies, Beatles-esque chord progressions, elements of dance-punk and glam-rock and hip-hop and metal.
The 23-year-old artist also known as Dominic Harrison explains, “It’s a story of coming-of-age and self-acceptance and liberation, in terms of sex and gender and drugs and heartbreak and all the other twists and turns we go through in life.” Likening Weird! to a“Skins” episode in album form, he adds, “I hope it makes people feel like it’s okay to feel out of place or twisted or weird, because lifeis weird—but that’s what beautiful about it. So don’t ever try to live it as someone else. Live it as you.”
