YUNGBLUD has revealed his third track from his upcoming the underrated youth EP “original me”. The song features Dan Reynolds, the vocalist of Imagine Dragons.
Recently, the artist debuted the official music video for “Hope For The Underrated Youth” and dropped details about the forthcoming EP.
Then, last week, he told fans that we might have to wait a little bit longer to get our hands on this six-track EP.
Originally, the underrated youth EP was slated to drop Oct. 11, but it will now drop Oct. 18, the artist revealed on Twitter.
“Yo! What’s going on? So, I was in the studio last night listening to the EP, and it occurred to me that one of the songs isn’t quite right yet. And I’ve got a bit of a favor to ask ya. I always want to keep it real with you guys, and I just wanna ask if I can have one more week on the EP if I can push it back to the 18th from the 11th. Just because, I want everything I release to be absolutely perfect, and one of the songs I don’t think is yet. So I’m sorry to anybody that’s gonna be well disappointed, but I promise you it’s coming out on the 18th. I will be dropping something next week, and it’s going to be mental to make up for it. It’s going to be crazy. I can’t wait. I love you all.”
Now, he’s dropped the explosive new track with Reynolds from the record. It features heavy guitar and the two vocalists going back and forth with booming vocals that command the track. The lyrics appear to celebrate being yourself rather than being cool and being confident in that.
“This song is about accepting the parts of yourself that you hate and realizing your biggest superpower is to be originally, authentically yourself,” YUNGBLUD said in a press release. “Working with Dan Reynolds was such a dream come true as he is a huge inspiration for me. The song literally came out of the studio within a day. The mutual raw energy between us made this song what it is.
