YUNGBLUD Releases New Song “The Emperor” for ESPN’s College Football Season
- British singer-songwriter YUNGBLUD released a new song “The Emperor” as the official 2022 anthem for ESPN’s College Football Season on August 5, 2022.
ESPN’s College Football Season kicks off on August 27, 2022.
The track was written by Dominic Harrison, Ellis Cruickshank Taylor, Matt Schwartz and Seton Daunt. Produced by Matt Schwartz, Show N Prove and YUNGBLUD.
“It’s a massive honour to have my song ‘The Emperor’ chosen as the anthem for ESPN’s college football season,” YUNGBLUD said in a statement. “I wrote this song when I was seventeen, it was just an outburst of unfiltered energy that I knew would have its moment one day.”
He continued, “I played it live for years but never found the right time to release it until now. College football is such a massive part of American culture and all I ever want to do is bring energy to people, so I can’t wait for the song to bring that energy to the fans and the players at the games all season.”
YUNGBLUD will release his upcoming self-titled third album on September 2, 2022.
The album comprises 12-track, featuring guest appearance from American singer-songwriter WILLOW.
YUNGBLUD shared on social media, “everything up to this moment has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I felt in that exact moment. the difference here is that i have thought and felt this record so deeply. i went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there. i studied it, i bathed in the emotion, tried to solve the equation and come up with an answer (at least for now) from love to pain, adoration to abandonment, laughter to betrayal. my message is the same, it will always be; i will continue to be nothing but myself and encourage others to do the same. there is simply no other option. i hope it provides my beautiful family who have followed me throughout this journey answers about themselves but also questions and challenges, but most importantly I hope it fills them with love. you have provided me with an antidote for the emptiness and loneliness I’ve felt in the past. you have given me a voice. so here is my story. why did i call it “YUNGBLUD”? because nothing in my life has ever made more sense.”
