Watch Yungblud Perform Raw Take of 'I Love You, Will You Marry Me'

On a recent whistle-stop visit to our shores, U.K. teen Dominic Harrison, aka Yungblud, performed a stripped-back, dual-guitar rendition of his latest single, "I Love You, Will You Marry Me", exclusively for Rolling Stone Australia.

"Everyone thinks on first listen it's a love song, which it is, but it's a modern day twisted love story," Harrison explained to Triple J of the song's underlying narrative of capitalist opportunism, which spawns from a spray-painted marriage proposal on a council estate in Park Hill, Sheffield, near where he grew up. The tragic true story — covered in-depth in a 2016 Guardian article — the young singer-songwriter says is adapted in the self-described "funky" track as his own "comment on corporate companies trying to make money out of something as precious as love."

Next up, Yungblud plays a run of Europe dates ahead of a visit to the U.S. in March; details here.
