Yungblud hopes his new album will be “naive and full of contradictions”.
The 22-year-old star – who released his debut studio album, ’21st Century Liability’, in 2018 – has promised his next record will explore a broad range of different issues.
He said: “The album is a neat whisky, uncensored version of my life: it talks about liberation in terms of sex, my identity and my mental health, as well as love, heartbreak, self-harm, suicide, depression … it’s like a series of ‘Skins’.”
The music star also explained that his next record simply “doesn’t give a f**k what people think about it”.
He told Kerrang! magazine: “I want it to be naive and full of contradictions. This record doesn’t give a f**k what people think about it, because it’s telling the listener what life is truly about.
“I have a dialogue with my fanbase that allows us to say what we think – we’re rebelling against the idea that speaking our minds is wrong.”
Meanwhile, Yungblud previously admitted Oasis’ attitude and outspoken nature inspired him as a teenager.
The alternative rock musician – whose real name is Dominic Harrison – explained that the music of the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel, spoke to him directly and allowed him to believe that he could one day make it as a musician.
He said: “Oasis were massive for me, because of the attitude and what they represented, and how outspoken they were. It felt like they were exactly like me.
“Then I found hip hop and emo. When you find new genres of music, you take ownership of them. It blew my mind, and I found so much solace in it.”
