Before appearing on stream, YUNGBLUD teased fans with a cryptic countdown and three separate camera angles of an empty room. Admirers tuned in from all over the world to watch the numbers tick down and speculate before the big reveal.

YUNGBLUD is currently on his sold-out LIFE ON MARS European tour. This summer, he will head to Australia, New Zealand and Japan before wrapping up his trip around the world in North America this fall.

Earlier this year, YUNGBLUD appeared on The Late Late Show With James Cordenwhere he shared his intentions for the upcoming project.

“I’ve had ups, I’ve had downs, and I think the difference between this album, as opposed to my last one, was it’s truly really about me,” YUNGBLUD says. “Some people don’t understand my intentions. [They] don’t understand who I really am, and now I’m about to show them.”
