Last week, YUNGBLUD released his highly anticipated self-titled third studio album ‘YUNGBLUD’ [Locomotion/GEFFEN Records] to vast critical acclaim. Rolling Stone hailed it for its “angst and tender introspect,” and for being “larger than life,” and “perfect for arena singalongs.” While NPR applauded it as a cohesive body of work,” finding the young artist “coming into his own.”
The 24-year-old rocker continued to celebrate its much-deserved success with a whirlwind 5-day in-store tour playing 9 cities across North America, a history-making epic three-venues-in-one-night celebration, performing live at Sunset Blvd’s most iconic venues—The Roxy, Whiskey a Go-Go and The Viper Room on the legendary Sunset Strip for an exciting first of its kind live-streamed concert.
And on Friday, he made a very special live appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform his current single ‘Tissues.’ Watch his spellbinding live performance here:
YUNGBLUD the album marks an exciting new era for the artist, with previously released fan-favorites ‘The Funeral’, ‘Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today’ and ‘Memories ft. Willow’, which surpassed 1 million streams within its first week. The album has already received an outstanding reception, from critics across the globe and arrived alongside the official music video for his latest single, ‘Tissues.’
Speaking on the ‘Tissues’ video, which Rolling Stone called “colorful” and “dance-fueled” was shot in London and directed by Charlie Sarsfield, YUNGBLUD says: “This is a new era for YUNGBLUD, I wanted to dance, I wanted to move, and I wanted to really personify in the video what this song means. It’s happiness and it’s euphoria and it’s letting the fuck go.” The infectious new track features a sample of The Cure’s ‘Close To Me’, which was personally approved by the band’s lead singer Robert Smith.

With co-signs from rock legends such as Mick Jagger, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Jones, and Dave Grohl, YUNGBLUD’S trajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.
