Bring Me The Horizon and Yungblud announce new collaboration

Bring Me The Horizon and Yungblud have joined forces again on the new song ‘Happier’.

Oli Sykes and co previously teamed up with the 26-year-old star – whose real name is Dominic Harrison – on the 2020 track ‘Obey’ from BMTH’s EP ‘Post Human: Survival Horror’.

The new tune will arrive at 6pm BST on Tuesday (17.10.23) and get its first spin on BBC Radio 1.

Yungblud previously gushed over Oli’s influence as a makeup-wearing teenager in the north of England and how the frontman “saved [his] life”.

He told NME: “He literally redefined my perception of growing up in wearing makeup and being different in the north. He basically saved my life.”

Oli, 36, admitted he wished he had Yungblud’s outgoing personality.

He said: “He’s [Yungblud] the kind of artist that rock needs – the kind of rockstar that changes a scene. I love him; he lights up a room. He’s the polar opposite to me. I wish I could have that confidence that he has. It’s infectious and that’s why a lot of kids look up to him.”

The ‘DArkSide’ star went on to praise the ‘Fleabag’ rocker for being the only artist since the late David Bowie to be “unashamedly and genuinely themselves”.

He added: “Not since Bowie have we had people who are just so unashamedly and genuinely themselves and don’t give f*** or play by the rules.

“Even Yungblud was like, ‘Doing a song together is so good for the scene’. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got the best band in the world, because if that’s the only one, then that scene dies… You can count on two hands the prominent rock bands that aren’t legacy acts or indie/pop bands like The 1975.”
