Yungblud explained: “It’s one thing when you get to be called up by an artist’s band who shaped your whole existence… David will always be my biggest influence, he resonated the idea of be who you are.

“It’s another thing to be called up and told, ‘Yo, your song’s going to be played alongside a landing on another planet.”
