Manchester singer Dario Darnell (aka Youngr) is kicking off the new year with new music.
The rising artist on Friday released his danceable new single "Ooh Lordy," but he also delivered another treat. The fluttering new cut is part of Youngr's newly released 10-track collection, perfectly dubbed This Is Not An Album.
"This Is Not album is a collection of all the songs I've released over the past year plus my first-ever releases from back in the day," Youngr said in a note about today's release. "Thought I'd throw them all together in one nice, organized package for your aural pleasure."
Speaking with Variance last March, Youngr said he wasn't sure about releasing a proper album. "It feels like we're moving away from [the album]," he said, while assuring fans: "I've got the tunes. I'm ready to put the tunes all together for sure."
Back in August, he released his video for another fan favorite in the form of "Monsters," which is included in This Is Not An Album.
