YUNGBLUD is racking up the YouTube views with his latest single Cotton Candy, and he’s keeping up the momentum with the announcement of a UK tour for next year.
The Intimate As Fuck Tour II emphatically speaks for itself, and is to visit small venues for dates in Kingston, Southampton, Brighton, Sheffield, Leeds, Dundee and Coventry in the spring of 2021, these preceded by multiple, bigger gigs in Nottingham, Glasgow and London next March.
“Cotton Candy is about sexual liberation,” YUNGBLUD has said of the single. “To me sex and sexuality is about freedom and the idea that you can to lose yourself in other people of all genders, of all shapes and sizes to find yourself and figure out who you truly are.”
“Sexual interaction should not be shamed, it should be celebrated because to have safe sex is to spread love and the world needs love more than ever right now. This song is so important to me because I see and speak to my fan base, facing insecurities around sexual interaction and I want to let them know that it is OK to be EXACTLY WHO THEY ARE and have the right to unconditionally love who they want and be loved in return.”
