Yungblud has revealed details of a new podcast that will air on BBC Sounds.
The Yungblud Podcast will cover “everything young people go through, the fun stuff and the hard stuff”, according to a press release.
“From tough choices as you become an adult, to important conversations with friends and family. First loves, first heartbreaks, first gigs, first times…”
Set to air on a weekly basis during October, Yungblud said that he was “so excited to be able to have one-on-one conversations with young people about what is going on in the world right now and hear it from their perspective.”
“I’m so sick and tired of talking about things from my perspective!” he added. “I can’t wait to hear what they’ve got to say, and what we’ve got to say together.”
Yungblud fans are being encouraged to get involved with the podcast, with the artist and the producers asking people who “may be at a turning point in your life” to get in touch with the show.
Applicants who are selected to feature on the podcast will have a conversation with Yungblud recorded via phone and/or video call, and fans can submit their stories here until Thursday, October 1.
An introductory episode to The Yungblud Podcast will be available on BBC Sounds today, September 29, before the series itself begins in October.
Yesterday (September 28) Yungblud announced his ‘Weird Time of Life’ virtual tour in support of his upcoming new album ‘Weird!’.
“The thing I miss about playing shows is the individuality of every night. The different faces, the different energy, but most of all the different cultures,” says Yungblud. “Our community may be from different parts of the world, yet we have similar beliefs, it is incredible.”
The tour will kick off digitally in London on November 16 and continue through December 7 when it concludes in Sydney. Despite being hosted online rather than in-person venues, ‘The Weird Time Of Life’ Tour will still deliver a unique, localized experience complete with full-scale digital production and an opening act to be announced at a later time.
