British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist YUNGBLUD shares his brand-new song ‘cotton candy’, taken from his forthcoming sophomore album, Weird!, out November 13.
“’cotton candy’ is about sexual liberation,” says YUNGBLUD, “To me sex and sexuality is about freedom and the idea that you can to lose yourself in other people of all genders, of all shapes and sizes to find yourself and figure out who you truly are. Sexual interaction should not be shamed, it should be celebrated because to have safe sex is to spread love and the world needs love more than ever right now.
“This song is so important to me because i see and speak to my fan base, facing insecurities around sexual interaction and I want to let them know that it is ok to be EXACTLY WHO THEY ARE and have the right to unconditionally love who they want and be loved in return.”

Last week he announced details for THE WEIRD TIME OF LIFE TOUR presented by Moment House. The 16 date global digital tour commences on November 16 in London and each show will have a unique localised experience with full-scale production.
Born in Yorkshire, England, YUNGBLUD (aka Dominic Harrison) is a multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. The 22-year-old artist is known for voicing what he feels are major concerns for his generation, using his music to unite and empower the youth of today.
After breaking onto the scene with his self-titled EP, he made his full-length debut with 21st Century Liability — a 2018 release that channeled his outrage about the state of the world into confrontational yet catchy songs steeped in punk fury and pop melodicism. The following year, he released Live In Atlanta and the hope for the underrated youth EP, which debuted in the top 10 on the UK Official Albums chart.
Over the years, YUNGBLUD has performed to sold-out crowds in over 20 countries and played some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Vans Warped Tour.
