Following the release of his long awaited debut album Cheyenne, Conner Youngblood shares a new video for “12 lbs”. It’s a hazy, lo-fi visual that uses a compilation of still images to follow Conner through the streets of Japan. The style is quite unlike his previous visuals and yet it follows a similar storyline marking the latest stop on his journey around the world intimately documented throughout his debut album. Conner shares about his travels, “I was mostly excited about going to Japan to eat the food and got a pretty cool music video out of the trip as well.”
Cheyenne arrives as a byproduct of Conner’s exploration, using his talents as a multi-instrumentalist and a songwriter to encompass his experiences into a comprehensive body of work.
Youngblood is currently embarking on a tour across Europe and North America. Watch “12 lbs” above and find more on Cheyenne and his upcoming tour dates below.
About Conner Youngblood & his 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 praise first generated around his 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 proclaim Youngblood as their “one to watch”.
