Following the release of WILLOW collab emo girl last week (and an official video due out later today), Machine Gun Kelly has teased another snippet of new material – and said goodbye to his pink Tickets To My Downfall guitar.

Taking to social media to share a video of him strumming along to TTMD track drunk face, the clip then zooms in and out on a brand-new silver mirrored guitar, along with audio of an as-yet-unreleased track. As well as sounding slightly darker as MGK has previously alluded, there's another voice that can be heard in the song – with some fans thinking it's alt.pop artist phem, who commented underneath the video on Twitter: "I’m excited ok?"

"new album, new snippet, new guitar," reads MGK's caption. Check it out below:

And watch the video for emo girl from 6pm GMT:

In October, Machine Gun Kelly said of his new album (which was then titled Born With Horns): "It feels more guitar-heavy for sure, lyrically it definitely goes deeper – but I never like to do anything the same. Every album is a juxtaposition of the last album. So I went and studied Tickets…, and I heard the bright sound that I had, and for this album I just turned the lights off.

"I'm not scared anymore, there's nothing holding me back from being my true self – and my true self can't be silenced, can't be restrained. It's a force, it's like a hurricane. Can't stop that, it just goes until it feels like stopping, and I don't feel like stopping anytime soon."

Mainstream Sellout is due out on March 25
