Yungblud and Lil Yachty have shared their mesmeric new single, which asks the question ‘When We Die (Can We Still Get High?’).

The new single sees the two global stars combine some of their best traits for a track that’s slow-paced but highly cathartic.

Yungblud’s soaring vocals give a sense of release to a serene production that maintains some of the blissfulness found on Lil Yacthy’s ‘Let’s Start Here’ album, which arrived almost a year to the day exactly.

The song also arrives alongside an official music video which sees Dom trade the claustrophobic cityscape for the trippy escapism of a forest, followed by the ocean.

Have a watch of the video below, by Logan Fields and Yussef Haridy and filmed in Atlanta, Georgia (where, incidentally, Lil Yachty is from).

Describing the track’s origins and how this collaboration was both a long time in-the-making and a significant linkup, Yungblud has shared:

“‘When we die (can we still get high?)’ was one of the first songs I wrote when I got to New Orleans to make new music. 

“Me and Yachty have been talking since 2019 and I’ve always thought we were on the same trip – fuck the rules, push things forward. So, when I wrote the song I knew he’d add something amazing. 

“I wanted this moment to be a collision of each other’s imagination and sound. I’m really excited about it and for what it could potentially inspire between the future of alternative and hip-hop. Press play.”

To commemorate the release of his latest single, pre-orders launch this coming Monday, January 29, for a very special limited edition ‘When We Die (Can We Still Get High?)’ ashtray, which you can get from Yungblud’s official store.
