"Young Love" is a song by Irish pop duo Jedward. It is the second single released from their third album, also titled Young Love. It was released as a digital download on 15 June 2012.

The song is written by Lars Halvor Jensen and Tim McEwan of Danish songwriting and production house Deekay and Los Angeles-based songwriter Jess Cates.

Background[edit]

The song was first previewed in April 2012 via the JedwardTV YouTube channel, with a 42-second excerpt of the song.[1] On 11 June the song was officially confirmed as a single with an international, digital-only release date of 15 June 2012. The cover art was also released on this date, showing a subdued black and white portrait of the twins with flat hair and wearing no shirts.[2] The song had its debut on 12 June when it was played on Alan Murphy's radio show The Social Network on Irish radio station Galway Bay FM.[3]

Music video[edit]

On 13 June, the music video was released, directed by John and Edward themselves.[4] Filmed at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, the video takes inspiration from U2's Dublin-based "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own" video, and pays homage to the Backstreet Boys' video for "Shape of My Heart".[5]
