YUNGBLUD has just shared a brand-new single featuring Oli Sykes.
Entitled Happier, the track follows his collab with Bring Me The Horizon on 2020’s riotous Obey, though this is an entirely different vibe from that effort.
“I have almost been conditioned by myself my whole life to be in pain,” YUNGBLUD says of the song. “When I’m in pain I work better. I function better because I have something to combat. It’s dark but it’s all I’ve ever known. The feeling of happiness is scary because you feel like it’s all about to go wrong. I have always felt that if I’m happy I’ll get complacent so it’s lost me a lot of opportunity for friendships and relationships in the past.
“I got really emotional when writing this. I was craving another YUNGBLUD song that would burn in my stomach, make me feel like it’s all gonna be okay, encourage me to fight back against old habits and try my best to realign myself to be better. It’s okay to find happiness, it’s okay to feel it. I hope you find a little bit of it in this song. You deserve it. Everyone does.”
