Along with the announcement of his new EP, YUNGBLUD dropped a new music video for his track, “hope for the underrated youth”. The music video was filmed in Bulgaria and was directed by award winning film maker Andrew Sandler. The video follows YUNGBLUD and his group of outsiders, (the underreated youth), peacefully resisting the oppressive military forces that have pursued them and left the city in ruins.
“I wanted this project to amplify a world that is consumed with unjustified hate. A world, where the common denominator of my generation is the fight for hope, unity and the deep desire for equality. Our ideologies are colliding head on with the hate around us, but we are beating it with a bouquet of fucking flowers!” YUNGBLUD told universal.
