Willow’, which surpassed 1 million streams within its first week. The album has already received an outstanding reception, with Rolling Stone UKspeaking on the album: “YUNGBLUD is still a champion for the disfranchised, but with a fresh, experimental direction, a new era is calling.”
Alongside the album’s release, YUNGBLUD has showcased his dancing skills in a dynamic new visual for most recent single ‘Tissues’, out today. Watch here. Speaking on the ‘Tissues’ video, which was shot in London and directed by Charlie Sarsfield, YUNGBLUD says: “This is a new era for YUNGBLUD, I wanted to dance, I wanted to move, and I wanted to really personify in the video what this song means. It’s happiness and it’s euphoria and it’s letting the fuck go.” The infectious new track features a sample of The Cure’s‘Close To Me’, which was personally approved by the band’s lead singer Robert Smith.
