STREAM: “Pizza Body” –

“A delicate composition of masterfully layered vocals…pretty damn beautiful”


“A sense of wonder which has a way of taking you to a different place if you let it” 

– Pigeons & Planes

“Music for long, pensive walks…serene and beautiful”

– Noisey

“More adept than ever at manipulating divergent elements until they reach an unnatural harmony of his own design” 

– Stereogum

“Youngblood’s richly layered sound feels at home in this dynamic landscape” 

– i-D Magazine


After announcing his upcoming debut album Cheyenne and sharing a striking new visual for “Los Angeles” directed by Johannes Greve Muskat, Youngblood is back today to share the record’s next track, “Pizza Body”.

The title of the song also expresses some of Conner’s self awareness and ability to find humor in his otherwise documentarian-like musical expressions. He describes the making of the single,”I was particularly happy with the vocals in the chorus on this song. I just kept trying out a bunch of different voices and mixing it up until I found a cool one. Just kinda made up a new voice to do something fresh. Obviously the lyrics to the song are not ‘oooh I wanna pizza body’, but in hindsight I wish they were.”

The track also follows the announcement of Youngblood’s Fall tour across Europe, the dates for which are below. Stream “Pizza Body” above now and stay tuned for more from Conner Youngblood soon.

About Conner Youngblood & his upcoming Cheyenne LP: 

Comprised of 13 tracks, Youngblood’s debut album is the culmination of two years of extensively seeing the world, resulting in a record that involves travel and nature, but also the grounding aspects of the people Youngblood has encountered along the way. Whether it’s what Youngblood humbly puts down as “musical ADHD” or sheer talent – Cheyenne is the work of a musical polymath. Where most musicians are relatively happy with picking up a guitar and sailing away on a few chords, Youngblood can be found darting from one instrument to the next. Cheyenne features no less than 30 different instruments – a harp, a bass clarinet, a tabla, and more – all of which are played by Youngblood on a record featuring no guests.

While his sound is definitively his own, his debut takes cues from an array of artists including multi-instrumentalists Sufjan Stevens and Elliott Smith as well as the beautiful melodics of singer-songwriter Moses Sumney and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Youngblood’s music has been championed loudly by Zane Lowe who proclaims him “a brilliant artist” and has received resounding support from Radio 1’s Annie Mac as well as BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Gilles Peterson.

Since The Generation of Lift EP he has played shows across the globe supporting the likes of Janelle Monae and touring with Angus & Julia Stone, Milky Chance and SOHN, he performed to a rapt crowd at Field Day festival in London earlier this month and released several collaborative singles with singer-songwriter Nylo leading the Observer to recently proclaim Youngblood as their “one to watch”.
