“I know the past couple of months have been very scary and weird,” he said. “So I would like to take this opportunity to say I’ll see you Thursday.”
In the last episode of ‘The Yungblud Show’, which aired back in April, the singer was joined by Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker and Kelly Osbourne.
Reviewing the episode, the NME wrote: “As with everything he does, there’s love at the core of ‘The Yungblud Show’. For 30 minutes, the Black Heart Gang family – that’s his always inclusive fanbase – comes together to think about something that isn’t impending doom.”
During lockdown, Yungblud launched a new ‘Stay Home’ video series, as well as becoming one of the first high-profile artists to stream a live gig from quarantine back in March. The fast-rising young artist is also set to release a new album this year, which he has called “naïve and full of contradictions” in a recent interview with the NME.
“The album is a neat whisky, uncensored version of my life: it talks about liberation in terms of sex, my identity and my mental health, as well as love, heartbreak, self-harm, suicide, depression…” he said.
“I have a dialogue with my fanbase that allows us to say what we think”, he added, “We’re rebelling against the idea that speaking our minds is wrong.”
