After hinting at a collaboration last month, Bring Me the Horizon have shared their new single “Obey” featuring YUNGBLUD.
The song premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1. This is the third single from the band’s upcoming EP, Post Human.
“We consider ourselves free but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about,” said Bring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes of the song. “They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like it’s nothing… it’s a weird world.”
“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand,” adds YUNGBLUD. “They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all.
“But what they don’t realize is that to us, to be different is to be free and a world of fucking love and equality is a world we want to be part of. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of. We will not obey.”
Listen to the song below.
Bring Me the Horizon is currently finishing up their Post Human project, which features a total of four new records that will be released throughout the year.
