Yungblud has revealed that his second studio album has been directly inspired by David Bowie’s iconic hit ‘Life on Mars’.
The singer, whose real name is Dominic Harrison, is working on the follow-up to 21st Century Liability, his critically acclaimed debut album which was released in the summer of 2018.
“There’s a song called ‘Mars’ which is important to me ’cause I had a trans man come up to me and say my track ‘Kill Somebody’ last year helped his parents with the community he wanted to be in,” Harrison told The Sun when asked about the new record.
He continued: “And allowed him to go from being a girl — they sat with him through his transition to be a boy. I thought that was fucking crazy.
“He told me about his story, about how nobody understood him, and it clicked with me because it reminded me of ‘Life On Mars’ by David Bowie — so I’m paying homage to that.”
Detailing about what his fans can expect from the new record on a whole, Yungblud said: “It’s kind of a nod to Bowie, and it’s stories about young people.”
