Yorkshire-born recording artist YUNGBLUD (Dominic Harrison) releases a brand new single, “original me” featuring Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons today. The track, co-written by Harrison and Reynolds is available HERE via Polydor Records. The official video is available Thursday. YUNGBLUD and Dan Reynolds will make their TV debut of “original me” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday 21st October.
“This song is about accepting the parts of yourself that you hate and realising your biggest superpower is to be originally, authentically yourself,” explained YUNGBLUD. “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.“
YUNGBLUD recently announced his new EP, the underrated youth, will be available on 18th October. Those who pre-order the EP will instantly receive “hope for the underrated youth” and the previously released “parents.”
YUNGBLUD is currently on a North American tour. He heads to the UK this Autumn to play a string of sold-out dates which will include a huge show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
