On Sunday (August 4), YUNGBLUD shared a mesmerizing stripped down version of his latest single "Hope For The Underrated Youth." Sitting behind a piano, the English rocker quietly sings the empowering song — making even more of an impact with nothing but piano chords guiding his vocals.
“The world right now tells us fall in line,” he said of the song's original version. “It tells us what you’re allowed to care about, think about, even to the point what air you should f**king breathe. Things are changing drastically, a lot of the time not for the better and it’s hard to watch."
"I meet so many young people every day and the one common denominator I find is the constant fire to defy apathy and the optimism to do anything in your power to fight for a better, more equal world," he continued. "This song is about freedom of speech. This song is about freedom of expression. This song is about the forward-thinking, racism hating, LGBTQ+, liberal ‘sinners’ that we all are. I see that there is hope for this ‘Underrated Youth’ and I believe the future looks bright because we are in it.”
YUNGBLUD posted a clip of the at-home performance on Twitter, which you can watch below.
