Following the success of 2018’s 21st Century Liability and 2020’s weird!, 24-year-old singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist YUNGBLUD returns with his self-titled third record, a reclamation of his own narrative and the consolidation of his artistic identity.
The album features previously released fan favorites, “The Funeral,” “Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today,” “Memories” (featuring Willow), and so much more.
Rarely does an artist come along such as YUNGBLUD, who has undeniably become Gen-Z’s rock n’ roll poster child. Fearlessly advocating for the weirdos, freaks, and the marginalized in the world, from the ground up YUNGBLUD has amassed legions of dedicated fans from all over the world who flock to his sold-out shows each night and scream every word to his songs as if their lives depend on it. With co-signs from rock legends like Mick Jagger, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Jones, and Dave Grohl, YUNGBLUD’S trajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.
YUNGBLUD the album arrives hot on the heels of the non-LP single "The Emperor," which was selected as the official 2022 anthem for ESPN’s college football season. Previous artists chosen to soundtrack this high-profile, nationally televised campaign include Imagine Dragons, Juice WRLD, and Thirty Seconds To Mars.
“It’s a massive honor to have my song ‘The Emperor’ chosen as the anthem for ESPN’s college football season. I wrote this song when I was seventeen, it was just an outburst of unfiltered energy that I knew would have its moment one day. I played it live for years but never found the right time to release it until now. College football is such a massive part of American culture and all I ever want to do is bring energy to people, so I can’t wait for the song to bring that energy to the fans and the players at the games all season.” - YUNGBLUD
