Upon the release of the ‘Weird’ single earlier this year, Yungblud told NME that the “diverse” album was “like an episode of Skins“.
“Since the beginning of time, humans have been so complex and like 15 different personalities at once – but we’re the first generation to accept it and know that it’s alright to be who you are,” he explained.
This idea is reflected in the official ‘Weird’ artwork, which depicts Harrison in multiple guises against a bright blue fence. See that above.
Citing influences such as LCD Soundsystem, Joy Division and The Cure, Yungblud told NME: “The album is a mix of emo-Dom, new-wave-Dom, metal-Dom, happy-Dom, sad-Dom and all over-the place-bonkers-mental-can’t-put-your-finger-on-him Dom. There’s a grunge banger…”
