Yungblud has been racking up the superstar collaborations of late, and he revealed how his song with Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons came about.

The pair have teamed up on new song Original Me from Yungblud’s The Underrated Youth EP, and realised they have a lot in common.

The musician – whose real name is Dominic Harrison – told Fault magazine: ‘I was in New Orleans fighting with anxiety at the time and I received an email from Dan Reynolds saying I think we should get on a song together.

‘I saw him at Leeds Fest like five years ago and thought “I want to be just like him” because he’s the real deal.

‘He’s a man with an incredible family who stands for incredible things and is a massive advocate for equality in terms of the LGBTQ+ community and the world.

‘We have very similar messages and we got into the studio and we just jumped around and created the song. There’s real magic in the song and I’m proud of how it turned out. It feels really good.’

The Underrated Youth, Yungblud’s six-track EP debuted at number six on the UK album chart following its release last week, amid his European tour.

Despite gaining ever more commercial success so early on in his career, Yungblud admits that the politics of the music industry do not interest him one bit.

He explained: ‘The hardest hurdle is when I started no one wanted to touch me, everyone thought I was this bratty kid, talking about nothing.

‘I was never interested in the music industry games, I’m not interested in awards, they are amazing when they come about but I only care about the number of people I walk out to on stage.

‘The most magical thing to me isn’t the gold disks or creating a smash hit, it’s about the mutual feeling I have with my fanbase. We say the same thing to each other, and it’s “you saved my f**king life”.’
