Yorkshire born recording artist Yungblud has released his full-length debut album, 21st Century Liability, via Polydor Records. The first single, “Medication” is available now via all digital partners. Upon its release the new song was World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1. Of “Medication,” Dominic Harrison (Yungblud) says, “I think growing up in a heavily medicated, overprescribed society you quickly learn how to use drugs to distract yourself from addressing what’s going on in real life.”

Yungblud recently announced that he will hit the road in September for a string of UK shows after completing a summer festival run which includes Rock Am Ring in Germany, Splendour in the Grass in Australia, Lollapalooza in Chicago, Pukkelpop in Belgium, Reading and Leeds in England, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas, and Austin City Limits in Texas. The release of 21st Century Liability coincides with Yungblud joining the Vans Warped Tour for its final run.

Yungblud partly credits his razor-sharp lyricism to his lifelong love of literary-minded songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Chris Difford from Squeeze. A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, bass, piano, and drums, he first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. At an early age, Yungblud moved to London to kick-start his career and refine his musical vision, a process aided by his rediscovery of firebrand artists like The Clash, Arctic Monkeys, and N.W.A. He made his debut with “I Love You, Will You Marry Me” — a song whose gritty storytelling recounts the real-life tale of a tragic romance at a public housing project in South Yorkshire. Featured on 21st Century Liability, “I Love You, Will You Marry Me” also appeared on his self-titled debut EP — an early-2018 release that prompted the NME to praise Yungblud for delivering “the lyrics of a young Alex Turner, the fury of Sex Pistols leader John Lydon, the swagger of hip-hop king Travis Scott and a whole load of spirit that’s all his own.”
