After dropping some hints and releasing two new songs earlier this year, YUNGBLUD has finally announced his third album, YUNGBLUD, out September 2nd via Locomotion/Geffen Records.
In anticipation of the announcement, a countdown clock started ticking down this morning on YUNGBLUD’s website. When the clock hit zero, the singer appeared on a livestream where he made the official announcement for the album. During the broadcast, he also got a tattoo on his ribcage to commemorate the experience.
“Everything up to this moment has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I felt in that exact moment,” says the singer. “The difference here is that I have thought and felt this record so deeply. I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there. I studied it, I bathed in the emotion, tried to solve the equation and come up with an answer (at least for now) from love to pain, adoration to abandonment, laughter to betrayal.”
He continues, “My message is the same, it will always be; I will continue to be nothing but myself and encourage others to do the same. There is simply no other option. I hope it provides my beautiful family who have followed me throughout this journey answers about themselves but also questions and challenges, but most importantly I hope it fills them with love. You have provided me with an antidote for the emptiness and loneliness I’ve felt in the past. You have given me a voice. So here is my story. Why did i call it YUNGBLUD? Because nothing in my life has ever made more sense.”
