Yungblud has unveiled his new song 'Strawberry Lipstick' and video

Yungblud unveiled his explosive new song 'Strawberry Lipstick' on Friday (July 17) accompanied by its equally outrageous video.

The song is the brand-new single from the British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s full-length sophomore album, which is due to be released later this year.

Directed by Christian Breslauer (Roddy Ricch, Tory Lanez, Marshmello) the 'Strawberry Lipstick' video stars Yungblud, his band, and the L.A.-based singer-songwriter, Jesse Jo Stark.

With a whirlwind intensity true to Yungblud’s chaotic charisma, the visual places him in a series of outlandish scenarios: mixing it up in a boxing ring, dancing in a custom Union Jack dress, lounging in a bathtub full of strawberries alongside Stark. A perfect foil to Yungblud, Stark is a captivating presence.

Co-produced by himself and his longtime collaborators Chris Greatti (Poppy, Grimes) and Zakk Cervini (Bishop Briggs, Machine Gun Kelly), 'Strawberry Lipstick' is a delightfully warped love song propelled by the 22-year-old artist’s snarling vocals and larger-than-life energy. With its fuzzed-out riffs and glam-rock flash, the gloriously catchy track also spotlights Yungblud’s gender-bending tendencies.

Endlessly creative, he has also recently announced the upcoming release of his new graphic novel, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club Volume 2: Weird Times at Quarry Banks University. The follow-up to The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club (his 2019 debut as a graphic novelist), the comic follows him and his super-powered friends as they navigate university life and all its drugs, sex, and relationship drama — ultimately finding themselves caught in a trip that may cost them their lives. Due out via Z2 Comics this November, Weird Times at Quarry Banks University is now available for preorder in multiple editions.
