The era of 90’s and early 00’s rock n’ roll is back and we’re not complaining at all. “Tissues,” off Yungblud’s new self-titled LP, features a sample of the Cure’s “Close To Me,” which was personally approved by the band’s lead singer Robert Smith. Yungblud, the British musician’s third studio album, is out now via Locomotion/Geffen Records. It features several previously-released songs, including “The Funeral,” “Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today,” and “Memories,” which features Willow. Yungblud is currently on tour in support of the album, with upcoming stops at Riot Fest, Firefly Festival, After Shock, and Austin City Limits. 

“This is a new era for Yungblud, I wanted to dance, I wanted to move, and I wanted to really personify in the video what this song means,” the singer said in a statement. “It’s happiness, and it’s euphoria, and it’s letting the fuck go.”
