Surprise! Today, Yuno has returned and stars in the official video for “Somebody,” his irresistible emo-pop single, directed by Jordanna Koffsky. The song is his first new recorded output since the release of 2018’s Moodie and is available now worldwide from Sub Pop.
Yuno says of the single, “Spending so much time at home during the pandemic brought back a lot of feelings from my adolescence. I grew up as somewhat of a loner–spending most of my time isolated in my bedroom, and I wanted to capture the parallels between my life now and the life of my younger self. I drew a lot from the pop-punk, post-hardcore, reggae, and southern hip hop that I’ve loved throughout my life. I feel like my 14-year-old self would be very proud.”
“Somebody,” was written by Yuno Moodie, produced by Moodie and Christoph Andersson, mixed by Andersson and mastered by JJ Golden.

Yuno is currently at work on the follow up to Moodie, his acclaimed Sub Pop debut.
Yuno’s Moodie, his debut EP, is now available worldwide on Sub Pop.
Yuno has directed an official video for his reworked single “Sunlight,” which is now available in its new form through all DSPs today via Sub Pop.
The “Sunlight” single is an ode to joy, and it’s collage-like visual follows Yuno spending time with friends and creating music. He says of the video, “This song is about longing to be with someone you care about. I just started touring last year, and I got to meet a lot of people in person that I’ve been friends with for years. I was also far away from people I care about. I wrote this song a long time ago, but I wanted to update it and capture the feeling of how relevant it is in my life right now.” The “Sunlight” rework was co-produced by Yuno and producer Lars Stalfors (Lil Peep, HEALTH, Bob Moses, Matt and Kim).
Yuno’s “Sunlight” along with his breakout single, “No Going Back,” are currently featured in the hit Netflix film, The Perfect Date (see Refinery 29 April 24th).
Yuno’s Moodie, his first-ever collection of songs, is available now worldwide through Sub Pop. Moodie was written, performed, and produced by Yuno.
What people are saying about Yuno: “An early entry into the race for song of the summer.” [“No Going Back”] -NPR Music
“‘No Going Back” insists what we’re all thinking for the new pop wunderkind: Only forward.” [“No Going Back”, Best New Track] -Pitchfork
“A masterfully written song, but instead of being polished to a bore, it feels handmade, with a fuzzy guitar solo, meaty bass, and a euphoric bounce.” [“No Going Back”] - Pigeons & Planes
“Yuno’s lithe voice floats amidst the cheerful soundscape, bouncing off the plucky piano keys… the brand of sunny pop displayed on ‘No Going Back’ should earn him his own cult fanbase.” - Impose
“It’s light and breezy indie-pop, with warm and bouncy synth-lines softly coloured overck with warm piano melodies and guitar solos. His vocals – fitting beautifully into the current psychedelic renaissance spearheaded by the likes of Tame Impala and Washed Out – pour out an infectious melody that’s simultaneously great fun and inflected with melancholy.” [“No Going Back”] - Indie Shuffle
“Bouncy and bright…” [“No Going Back”] - Gorilla Vs. Bear.
“Charming us all with its buoyant pop flair and instrumentals that sound as if they were seemingly dipped in sunshine, “No Going Back” signals Yuno’s return in a way that’s almost impossible to shake. “No Going Back” is as promising as it is optimistic.” [“No Going Back”] - The Grey Estates
“Drifting digital pop casting a bittersweet spell.” [“No Going Back”] -CLASH
2018 international tour schedule includes European dates October 26th-November 26th.

Herewith, details on Sub Pop’s elaborate plans to celebrate the TRUE most wonderful time of the year: Record Store Day 2018.
As the main course, we’re putting out Thomas Andrew Doyle’s (aka TAD) limited-edition Incineration Ceremony LP. And! Equally delightful, though more challenging to flip on eBay, a bunch of our artists are performing (King Tuff and Yuno), or doing DJ sets (Steve Turner of Mudhoney, John Reis & Gar Wood of Hot Snakes, and Colleen Green) in actual record stores! And all of this will be available or happen on Saturday, April 21st at participating retailers.
Please find info on Thomas Andrew Doyle and a schedule of performances and DJ sets below.
Thomas Andrew Doyle’s / Incineration Ceremony LP:
Incineration Ceremony is the new work by Thomas Andrew Doyle (TAD, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, Hog Molly) and is a return to roots of sorts. After spending his formative years in music playing in jazz clubs while attending school studying classical and jazz music at Boise State University, Doyle comes forth with a symphonic take on what is going on in his head. Spawned from the dark and dreary recesses of Doyle’s psyche comes an immense sound of textures, rhythms and material suitable for film and stand-alone listening, disquieting all who are within earshot. People who are familiar with his music should expect the unexpected. Doyle’s entry into the world of symphonic composition is no novice beginner’s attempt. Incineration Ceremony is a musical journeyman’s expression that is genuine, heartfelt, honest, uncompromising, and authoritative.
Incineration Ceremony is limited to 1,500 copies worldwide, and comes housed in a single-LP jacket with custom dust sleeve and grey/black vinyl.
Incineration Ceremony Tracklist:
1. Silent Incineration
2. Bio-Illogical Functions
3. Meditations in Null
5. Nurtured in Grief
6. The Only Thing You Truly Own Is Nothing
