Yungblud reveals details of self-titled, upcoming third studio album

Yungblud has confirmed that his third, self-titled studio album is scheduled to arrive on Sept. 2.  A countdown clock on the musician’s website led to a livestream where Yungblud made the official announcement for the album. While broadcasting, the musician proceeded to get a tattoo in his ribcage area to commemorate the experience.

Said Yungblud: “Everything up to this moment has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I felt in that exact moment. The difference here is that I have thought and felt this record so deeply. I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there. I studied it, I bathed in the emotion, tried to solve the equation and come up with an answer (at least for now) from love to pain, adoration to abandonment, laughter to betrayal.”

He continued, “My message is the same, it will always be; I will continue to be nothing but myself and encourage others to do the same. There is simply no other option. I hope it provides my beautiful family who have followed me throughout this journey answers about themselves but also questions and challenges, but most importantly I hope it fills them with love. You have provided me with an antidote for the emptiness and loneliness I’ve felt in the past. You have given me a voice. So here is my story. Why did i call it YUNGBLUD? Because nothing in my life has ever made more sense.”

Yungblud teamed up with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in the video for “The Funeral” that was released in March, which was followed by “Memories” that featured a guest appearance by Willow.  Yungblud is currently on the road in Europe on his sold out “Life on Mars” tour, and will return stateside this fall with select dates including festival appearances at the Austin City Limit, Louder Than Life, Riot Fest and the Firefly Music Festival. You can  get ticketing info here.
