Yungblud Reveals Release Date for Sophomore Album ‘Weird!’: ‘Embrace the Strange’

Yungblud announced his forthcoming sophomore album, Weird!, on Thursday morning (Sept. 17) via social media.

“WEIRD! the album will be released on friday 13th of november,” the rising star wrote on Instagram. “I cannot wait for you to fall into this world with me. together let’s re define what it means to be ‘different’. embrace the strange. never settle for being anything less than 100% who you are, even if that’s 15 different people all at the same time.”

The slideshow posted by the U.K. singer-songwriter reveals the album cover art, which features Yungblud inhabiting seven distinct, gender-bending characters leaning against a bright blue wall of corrugated metal, as well as the LP’s 12-song track list and previews of new Weird!-era merch.

“I love each and every one of you for exactly who you are. you saved my fucking life!” he closed out the message to fans. “What does it mean to be weird? let’s find out. GO PRE ORDER NOW!!! (link in bio) oh … and btw there’s a song out too #weareweird.”

Along with the album announcement, Yungblud dropped vulnerable anthem “God Save Me, But Don’t Drown Me Out,” which follows the synth-tinged title track and “Strawberry Lipstick” as the album’s third pre-release single.

Weird! will serve as Yungblud’s first official studio set since his EP The Underrated Youth dropped in Oct. 2019. In the interim, he’s also released collaborations with Blackbear and Marshmello (“Tongue Tied”), Denzel Curry (“Lemonade”) and Bring Me The Horizon (“Obey”) in addition to contributing haunting ballad “Die A Little” to the Season 3 soundtrack for Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

Weird! will hit retailers Nov. 13 via Interscope Records. Check out the album’s colorful cover art and track list below.
