The announcement came at the end of the second episode of his YouTube series, ‘The Yungblud Show’, which featured appearances from Travis Barker, Machine Gun Kelly, Kelly Osbourne and more.
Speaking of ‘Weird’, Dominic Harrison had this to say: “This song is about a really, really weird time in my life where I couldn’t understand the world and I thought to myself that this could not be more of a right time to put it out. I moved it forward in a whole schedule of things and I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The artist, along with his full band, performed his ‘S__t’s Weird Keep Calm And Carry On’ show on Monday, 16 March at 7:00am PDT, also via a live stream on YouTube.
