King stated, “At the time, I’d changed medications when I was trying to process the death of family members. I was coasting through life like a zombie. When I’d get off them, I’d feel things that happened six months ago for the first time and crash down.”
Accompanying the song release, King also dropped a live performance video, created at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio, it features acclaimed musicians including Chris St. Hilaire on drums and Nick Movshon on bass.
Young Blood’s tales of excess, salvation, break up and addiction, draw on some difficult and personal moments, in which King turned to his most stadium sized 70s rock influences, both for musical comfort and also as a foreboding warning. King recently shared with Rolling Stone that Paul Kossoff, cult 70s rock band Free’s guitarist, who died in connection to substance abuse at a similar age to King, was a driving force in him wanting to turn a corner in his life.
“I was seeing all these signs,” King recently told Rolling Stone, adding. “I was feeling really paranoid that something was trying to tell me to either slow down or that the end was inevitable and that it was coming pretty soon.”
