YUNGBLUD: “Finally, It All Begins Thursday…”
The Doncaster rocker could well be gearing up to unveil details regarding his highly-anticipated upcoming second album – the follow-up to 21st Century Liability – which is due out this year.
In a new video shared across his socials, YUNGBLUD shares the stirring and empowering idea of, “What does it mean to be weird?”
“That beautifully fucked-up name,” he says. “Is it a name of celebration? Is it a name of pain? I think that decision lies with us and us alone.
“The thing about human beings is that we forget that we’re all 15 different people at any one moment. We don’t know which version of ourselves that we’re going to wake up to. I spent so much time fighting and silencing those people who made up who I am because I was afraid of what the outside world would think about me. If you remain silent to the people inside yourself then you’ll remain silent to everybody else.”
He concludes: “Embrace the strange, celebrate the abnormal and allow every part of yourself to speak, sing and run around in circles. What does it mean to be weird? To be weird is to be different and extraordinarily free. To me, to be weird is the best thing you can fucking be.”
