Yungblud is performing at the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards.

The ceremony will air globally on MTV on November 8. In addition to performing, Yungblud is also nominated in two categories: Best New and Best Push.

Other nominees include Green Day, Pearl Jam, The Killers, Coldplay, Liam Gallagher and Tame Impala for Best Rock, and Twenty One Pilots, Machine Gun Kelly, Hayley Williams, The 1975, blackbear and FKA twigs for Best Alternative.

In other Yungblud news, the U.K. rocker has premiered the video for “cotton candy,” a track from his upcoming sophomore album, Weird!

The clip certainly reflects the message of the song, which Yungblud describes as being about “sexual liberation.” You can watch it now streaming on YouTube.

Weird!, the follow-up to 2018’s 21st Century Liability, is due out November 13.
