YUNGBLUD’s Weird! marks the artist’s third and most complex body of work, the album embodies a wide array of sounds with Queen-inspired harmonies, Beatles-esque chord progressions, elements of dance-punk, glam-rock, hip-hop, and metal. The album was recorded at studios in London and Los Angeles with Cervini, Greatti, and another frequent collaborator, Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Bullet For My Valentine, Massive Attack). Featuring the artist’s previous hit singles, “mars” and “cotton candy,” this is Weird! is one album fans are not going to want to miss. Weird! follows the artist’s highly successful LP 21st Century Liability in 2018 and the 2019 EP, the underrated youth, which were immediately embraced by fans and the world.
The 23-year-old artist says in a press-release,
“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 life is weird—but that’s what beautiful about it. So don’t ever try to live it as someone else. Live it as you.”
