YUNGBLUD releases his new EP, the underrated youth, today via Locomotion/Polydor/Geffen Records.
Last week, YUNGBLUD released a brand- new song entitled “original me” featuring Dan Reynolds which is co-written by Harrison and Reynolds.
Since exploding onto the scene with his 2018 debut album 21st Century Liability, YUNGBLUD has traveled the globe and brought his rebel-minded hip-hop infused rock-and-roll to an ever-growing legion of fans. In the midst of his nonstop touring, the London-based artist has built a one-of-a-kind bond with his young audience—a deeply felt solidarity that served as a major touchstone for his new EP, the underrated youth.
“This EP is about all the people I’ve met and the stories I’ve heard in the past couple of years,” says the 22-year-old singer/songwriter/musician otherwise known as Dominic Harrison. “My fans are constantly telling me about the incredible things they’ve gone through, like coming out to their parents or transitioning to another gender. With every day, every gig, every DM, it’s become less and less about me and more about this whole collective of people coming together to fight for what we believe in.”
Working with producer/songwriters Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Massive Attack, Robbie Williams),
Mike Crossey (Artic Monkeys, 21 Pilots, The 1975, Foals) Zakk Cervini (Machine Gun Kelly, The Used), Chris Greatti (Grimes, blink-182), YUNGLBUD approached the making of the underrated youth with greater clarity and grit than ever before.
