Today YUNGBLUD shares his latest song, “mars” from his December 4 album, WEIRD!
On songs 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.”
