Yungblud has good news and bad news for his fans. The bad news is that he's pushing back the release of his sophomore album Weird! from Nov. 13 to Dec. 4 due to the pandemic.
But the good news is that fans still have an opportunity to hear him perform the songs from Weird! during his virtual tour before he's officially released them.
He addressed these updates in a series of short Instagram videos posted Wednesday (Oct. 21) that explained how the vinyl houses and production companies making physical copies of his album are experiencing severe shipping delays because of COVID-19. "So I have decided to push back my album Weird! till Dec. 4," the U.K. singer-songwriter said in the first clip. Although he explained how his record label warned him that the pandemic could pose problems for his album release plans this year, Yungblud had no time to waste.
