Last week, YUNGBLUD announced that his new album Weird! arrives Nov. 13. Fans first got a taste of the forthcoming LP way back in April when he shared the album’s title track along with an entertaining video. YUNGBLUD previously shared that he actually penned “Weird!” following his historic Brixton Academy performance in 2019.

Along with the album’s announcement, YUNGBLUD also shared his vulnerable new single “god save me, but don’t drown me out.” The track was co-produced by YUNGBLUD and longtime collaborators Chris Greatti (PoppyGrimes) and Zakk Cervini (Bishop BriggsMachine Gun Kelly).

Now, he has unveiled a pivotal new video for the single. As YUNGBLUD shares, he decided to paint a picture of what depression feels like in the “god save me, but don’t drown me out” video. However, the video also stands as a reminder that things can get better.

“This video is for anyone laying in their bedroom at 4 am wondering why they aren’t good enough,” he says.  “I wanted to paint a picture of what depression really feels like, where everyone can be screaming at you, but you just can’t hear anything at all. I wanted this video to ignite a resemblance or a spark of self-love to highlight the idea that if you ever feel like you can’t go on, it can get better. You are brilliant, you are an individual and there has only ever been one you and there will only ever be one of you.”

The new video is also YUNGBLUD’s directorial debut alongside Gavin Gottlich.

“I loved making this video,” he continues. “It’s my directorial debut with my partner in crime Gavin Gottlich. I’m excited and I hope it helps people. Everyone has their own inner teddy bear, all you gotta do is just let it out. It might just save your life.”

“god save me, but don’t drown me out” follows up YUNGBLUD’s last single “Strawberry Lipstick.” The explosive track debuted back in July along with a wickedly entertaining video.

YUNGBLUD has also teamed up for a few collaborations recently. In August, he collaborated with Denzel Curry for the genre-bending track “Lemonade.” The single appears on the Madden NFL 21 Soundtrack.

As well, YUNGBLUD joined forces with Bring Me The Horizon for “Obey,” which debuted earlier this month. The new collab appears on BMTH’s multi-release Post Human. Earlier this month, the collab reached No.1 on the Billboard Hot Hard Rock Songs Chart. “Obey” climbed eight spots for the coveted No.1 position, dethroning Five Finger Death Punch‘s “A Little Bit Off.”

The “god save me, but don’t drown me out” video isn’t the only exciting news from YUNGBLUD this week. His collaboration “I Think I’m OKAY” with MGK and blink-182‘s Travis Barker earned a Billboard Music Award nomination on Monday. The song is nominated for Top Rock Song alongside Panic! At The Disco and twenty one pilots.
