YUNGBLUD has released a new video for his latest single Happier, and it features all sorts of fun footage from his and Oli Sykes’ time together in Japan.

The musician recently joined Bring Me The Horizon for their epic NEX_FEST shows, and while they were in Tokyo they teamed up with director Masaki Watanabe of Maxilla Japan to film this energetic new clip (which is quite a different vibe to the two’s previous collab Obey, and its accompanying giant robot battle video).

Previously speaking about the meaning of the single, YUNGBLUD explained that, “I have almost been conditioned by myself my whole life to be in pain. 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.”
