After a week of teasing, Yungblud has premiered his new single, “The Funeral,” alongside a video starring Ozzy Osbourne.
The clip, which streaming now on YouTube, begins the Prince of Darkness peering over the “Fleabag” rocker lying down in a coffin in an otherwise empty room. “Hang on, is this a f***ing funeral?” Ozzy asks. “Where the f*** is everybody?”
Cut to Yungblud rocking out the Billy Idol-esque tune in front of a moshing audience. When he leaves the club at the end of the video, he’s immediately hit by a car driven by Sharon Osbourne.
“What the f*** was that?” Ozzy asks from the passenger seat, to which Sharon responds, “Just some f***ing poser.”
The metal legend then declares, “Ah, run him over again then.”
“The lyrics are literally me listing off everything I’m insecure about,” Yungblud says of “The Funeral,” which is available now via digital outlets. “If you identify with what you don’t like about yourself and own it, no one can say anything that you haven’t already said to yourself. You become bulletproof.”
“This song’s about owning those insecurities and just being f***ing fearless,” he adds. “It’s about ego, death, rebirth and f***ing dancing on your grave.”
“The Funeral” follows Yungblud’s 2021 single “Fleabag,” which currently sits in the top 10 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart. Yungblud’s latest album is his 2020 sophomore effort, Weird!
