Yungblud recently shared a powerful new single, “Breakdown,” in support of mental health charities.

The musician has committed to donate £1 (up to £25,000) to the charities Mind and Sound Mind Live for every use of the song’s CapCut template.

“I wrote this song because it’s been the hardest year for me mentally,” Yungblud said. “I feel myself changing and throughout my life I’ve never felt good enough, it’s been the main thing that on the one hand has driven me forward but on the other, has eaten me up. For as long as I can remember I have felt constantly afraid of how quickly my head can turn dark.”

“It’s always been so hard to fight the darkness that I inevitably have. A lot of people will say it’s a phase and it will go away. But it doesn’t and the reality of the situation is I have to find strategies to deal with it,” he added.

Meanwhile, Yungblud is set to headline his own Bludfest at Milton Keynes Bowl on August 11. The genre-spanning bill features Lil Yachty, Soft Play, Nessa Barrett, The Damned, Lola Young, Jazmin Bean, Noahfinnce, Jesse Jo Stark, Landon Barker, Hannah Grae, and Aziya, with many more acts still to be announced.
