Yungblud is set to return this Friday (March 11) with a new single called ‘The Funeral’ – get all the details on the new song below.

The singer has been teasing his upcoming third full-length album recently, though it’s not clear whether ‘The Funeral’ will appear on the record.

The new track was teased last week when Yungblud wiped his social media accounts and shared a hand-written note inviting fans to his ‘funeral’.

The song’s artwork and release date of this Friday have now been confirmed. See the artwork for ‘The Funeral’ below and pre-save it here.

In a recent interview, Yungblud teased that his upcoming third album features “the most personal music I’ve ever written”.

“I’ve been in London. I’ve been making kind of the third record, and I’m just so excited about it,” he said. “This is, for me, the most personal music I’ve ever written. And I think people are going to be a bit shocked about that because all my other music is pretty personal.”

The Doncaster artist – real name Dominic Harrison – released his second full-length effort, ‘Weird!’, in December 2020. It followed on from his 2018 debut ’21st Century Liability’. Earlier this year, he revealed that he’d been in the studio with Willow.

Elsewhere, Yungblud has become the latest artist to cancel forthcoming shows in Russia due to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement announcing that his own summer gigs in the country would be cancelled, Yungblud wrote: “I’m heartbroken to announce I will be cancelling my Russian shows scheduled for this summer.

“Heartbroken because I know the vicious and brutal acts of the Russian regime in Ukraine over the past week do not reflect the attitudes and ideals of the beautiful people who I have met in Russia in the past.”

To the people of Ukraine, he added: “A country I’ve spent time in and have dear friends in. My heart is with you – you’ve already shown such strength and determination, resisting this needless invasion.

“Everyone deserves to be the creator of their own destiny, rather than having it forced upon them by acts of war and aggression. Ukraine, I promise I’ll come back as soon as I can. My heart is with you, always.”
