YUNGBLUD shares his latest song, ‘mars’ taken from forthcoming album ‘Weird!’, due out on December 4.
Through tracks like ‘mars’, YUNGBLUD reveals the rare balance of conviction and sensitivity he brought to his songwriting and performance on Weird!. With its delicate storytelling and tender vocal work, the acoustic-guitar-laced track shares the narrative of a young trans woman Harrison met while playing Warped Tour in 2018.
“She told me how her parents had come to the show with her, and how seeing our community helped them to understand that her coming out as trans wasn’t just a phase—this is who she really was,” he recalls. “It made me cry to think that we could have that kind of impact and change people’s perceptions, just by being ourselves.”

The 23-year-old is currently in the middle of his THE WEIRD TIME OF LIFE tour, presented by Moment House. The 16 date global digital tour commenced on November 16 in London and each show has had 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.
