Yungblud recently released a video for his single “Happier,” featuring Bring Me The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes.
The retro-themed video, filmed in Tokyo, shows Yungblud and Sykes singing the lyrics during Karaoke, playing arcade machines, and shaking legs on a crowded dance floor.
“If I could tell you how I feel/I know that you’re still hurting too,” Yungblud shouts. “No I’m not broken/I’m just scared to belong here, scared to be happier.”
“Happier” marks Yungblud’s second collaboration with Sykes following Bring Me The Horizon’s 2020 single “Obey.”
“I have almost been conditioned by myself my whole life to be in pain. When I’m in pain I work better. I function better because I have something to combat. It’s dark but it’s all I’ve ever known. The feeling of happiness is scary because you feel like it’s all about to go wrong. I have always felt that if I’m happy I’ll get complacent so it’s lost me a lot of opportunity for friendships and relationships in the past,” Yungblud said about the song.
He added, “I got really emotional when writing this. I was craving another YUNGBLUD song that would burn in my stomach, make me feel like it’s all gonna be okay, encourage me to fight back against old habits and try my best to realign myself to be better. It’s okay to find happiness, it’s okay to feel it. I hope you find a little bit of it in this song. You deserve it. Everyone does.”
