Yungblud has unveiled his new music video for ‘god save me, but don’t drown me out’ that’s dedicated to those struggling with their mental health.
Having revealed ‘god save me, but don’t drown me out’ a week ago, it seems like Yungblud had some unfinished business with his new single.
After releasing a standard lyric video for his new single, the British artist – real name Dominic Harrison – has now followed it up with a new music video that explores the dark side of depression.
Announcing the video in a lengthy Instagram post, Yungblud dedicated it to those having a tough time with their mental health: “This video is for anyone laying in their bedroom at 4 am wondering why they aren’t good enough.”
He then writes how he wanted to “paint a picture of what depression really feels like, where everyone can be screaming at you but you just can’t hear anything at all” before stating how he wanted his ‘god save me, but don’t drown me out’ music video to inspire people and help them escape the darkness.
“I wanted this video to ignite a resemblance or a spark of self love highlight idea that if you ever feel like you can’t go on, it can get better,” wrote the singer.
“You are brilliant, you are individual and there has only ever been only one of you and there only ever will be one of you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Everyone has their own inner teddy bear, all gotta do is just let it out. it might just save your life.”
As for the video itself, it depicts Yungblud going through a series of tough moments in his life and eventually finding solace in a giant anthropomorphic teddy bear. It’s pretty powerful stuff and he somehow manages to squeeze it into a five-minute music video.
‘god save me, but don’t drown me out’ is the first single off Yungblud’s upcoming new album, Weird!, which is set to be released on Friday, November 13th.
