On top of his ace #LockdownSessions in which he has covered the likes of Paramore’s Misery Business with Travis Barker, Oasis’ Champagne Supernova featuring YUNGBLUD, and even Rihanna at the request of Marilyn Manson, Machine Gun Kelly has just released a brand-new single.

The track is called Bloody Valentine, and is the first to be taken from the musician's upcoming pop-punk-inspired album Tickets To My Downfall. Produced by blink-182 drummer and friend Travis Barker, it's an exciting hint at what's to come from the rock-loving rapper, who last year played Tommy Lee in Netflix’s Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt.
