Today, British singer/songwriter Yungblud has released his brand new single, “cotton candy,” which is out now via Locomotion/Interscope Records and can be heard below. The track appears for his upcoming sophomore album, Weird!, which will be released on November 13th.
Pre-orders for the album are available here, and with the pre-order, you will instantly receive “cotton candy,” plus “god save me, but don’t drown me out,” “weird!” and “strawberry lipstick.”
“‘cotton candy’ is about sexual liberation,” says Yungblud. “To me sex and sexuality is about freedom and the idea that you can to lose yourself in other people of all genders, of all shapes and sizes to find yourself and figure out who you truly are. Sexual interaction should not be shamed, it should be celebrated because to have safe sex is to spread love and the world needs love more than ever right now. This song is so important to me because i see and speak to my fan base, facing insecurities around sexual interaction and I want to let them know that it is ok to be EXACTLY WHO THEY ARE and have the right to unconditionally love who they want and be loved in return.”
Last week, Yungblud announced the details for “The Weird Time of Life Tour,” which is presented by Moment House. The 16-date global digital tour will kick off on November 16th in London, and each show will have a unique localized experience with full-scale production.
