Labrinth has released two new tracks from the forthcoming soundtrack to the second season of ‘Euphoria’ – you can hear them below.

‘Yeh I Fuckin’ Did It’ and ‘I’m Tired’ are the Londoner’s contributions to the HBO series, the soundtrack to which will be officially released in April on streaming platforms and in physical formats. The second season is currently airing on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Labrinth scored the first season of the teen drama in 2019 and returned for season two. Last week, viewers saw him make his on-screen debut in the show, in the episode ‘You Who Cannot See, Think of Those Who Can’. The series, an adaptation of the Israeli miniseries of the same name, stars Zendaya as teenage addict Rue Bennett, and follows a group of high school students through the growing pains of sex, drugs, trauma, identity, friendships and relationships.

‘I’m Tired’ aired during last week’s (January 30) episode; ‘Yeh I Fuckin’ Did It’, meanwhile, featured in episode two, ‘Out of Touch’. Labrinth isn’t the only artist to contribute original tracks to season two of the show; Lana Del Rey has chipped in too, with ‘Watercolor Eyes’, while Tove Lo contributed ‘How Long’. Additionally, Labrinth teamed up with James Blake for ‘Pick Me Up’.

‘Euphoria’s unflinching portrayal of sex and drug abuse has caused controversy; the U.S. group Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., issued a statement to TMZ slamming the show’s depiction of narcotics. “Rather than further each parent’s desire to keep their children safe from the potentially horrific consequences of drug abuse and other high-risk behavior,” the statement read, “HBO’s television drama, ‘Euphoria’, chooses to misguidedly glorify and erroneously depict high school student drug use, addiction, anonymous sex, violence and other destructive behaviors as common and widespread in today’s world.”

For Labrinth, his contributions to ‘Euphoria’ mark the latest chapter in a series of high profile projects. Born Timothy McKenzie, the Hackney native collaborated with both Beyoncé and Kanye West in 2019, co-writing and co-producing the track ‘Spirit’ for ‘The Lion King’ soundtrack with the former and taking a co-production credit on the latter’s ‘God Is’, to which he also lent vocals. Labrinth’s second solo album, ‘Imagination & the Misfit Kid’, was released the same year.
