The song appears on his latest EP the underrated youth which arrived last fall.
Then, he gave a live performance of the song which was used for a video of the track.
“This song is about accepting the parts of yourself that you hate and realizing your biggest superpower is to be originally, authentically yourself,” YUNGBLUD said in a press release. “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.”
“They gave me a chance to run down an avenue of creativity, exploring deeper meanings and hidden messages within the songs that might not necessarily have been apparent to me as I was writing them,” the musician says in a statement.
“[Vevo] gave me an opportunity to look into my subconscious and pull apart elements of myself, my fanbase and my life that I didn’t even know existed yet. They were so amazing to work with and I really learned a lot. I won’t forget this opportunity for the rest of my career. Thank you Vevo. I hope you all love what we created.”
Now, he’s back with his third video for the song which we’re presuming will be used for streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music. Notably, a shot shows YUNGBLUD wearing a face mask but it’s just a coincidence as the video was arriving prior to the coronavirus becoming a pandemic.
