Born in Yorkshire, 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 U.S. 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 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.”
