YUNGBLUD has shared a new two-song Spotify Singles session, recorded at Sound City studios in Los Angeles.
The session features a stripped-back, piano rendition of his single “mars” along with his take on the Madonna classic “Like a Virgin.” The singer transforms the seductive pop song into an upbeat, raucous anthem with tons of energy and flair only YUNGBLUD can bring.
Speaking about the recordings, YUNGBLUD said:
“Recording at Sound City just blew my mind. I’m still picking my brains up off the pavement to be honest. To record in that studio you need to bring everything you have or you don’t get past the car park. The two songs I chose were Like a Virgin by Madonna and mars by myself. I decided to strip mars back, just me and the piano. It’s something that this song deserves, to exist in its purest form so the emotion can just radiate. I have owed my fanbase a version like this for a long time. I hope they love it!
“When we were choosing a song to cover, I wanted it to be completely out of the box yet make absolute sense all at the same time. Madonna is a massive idol of mine, I admire every move she artistically made. I wanted to take the classic, add some YUNGBLUD energy and shake it the fuck up! This is a song I heard growing up, my mum and my sisters used to play it all the time so that added real pressure to get it right!”
