As a gift for Halloween, YUNGBLUD decided to serve us with a video for the stripped back version of his latest single, ‘cotton candy‘, and we’re absolutely loving it!
In fact, ‘cotton candy’ is the fourth single for YUNGBLUD’s upcoming album, weird!. The album is expected to be released on December 4th. It will of course include the previous singles, ‘weird!’, ‘strawberry lipstick” and ‘god save me, but don’t drown me out.’
The killer pop song was released earlier this month. ‘cotton candy’ was co-written by YUNGBLUD himself, along with big names in the industry like Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Chris Greatti, Zakk Cervini, and Omer Fedi. It’s a fun pop song all about exploring your sexuality and having multiple partners but eventually only wanting one. YUNGBLUD also released a music video for the song which we loved.
Don’t let the “stripped back” fool you: this version of ‘cotton candy’ is just as fun and addictive as the original. In fact, the live band adds quite a lot to the song. There’s much more emphasis in the addictive bass line, and the drums sound amazing while the added acoustic guitar makes it all the more fun. In other words, if you’re into live music, this is for you. Meanwhile, YUNGBLUD’s vocals sound more real and raw. In the video, he dances around the room with the attitude we love from him. It’s just so fun to watch him perform.
With a bit less than two months away from the release of weird!, YUNGBLUD released a full EP to celebrate Halloween, a weird af! halloween. Along with ‘cotton candy’, there’s the stripped back versions of several songs from the upcoming album but also YUNGBLUD’s first album. Definitely worth checking out while you wait for his sophomore album!
The global digital tour
But before the full album drops, there’s still a lot to look forward to. Not only do you need to get ready for the release of his second album, but YUNGBLUD is also doing a global digital tour. From mid-November to the beginning of December, YUNGBLUD will have several online concerts. By how amazing this version of ‘cotton candy’ sounds, we couldn’t be more excited!
