Listen To A Collaboration Between blink-182’s Travis Barker, YUNGBLUD And Halsey

YUNGBLUD, Halsey and Travis Barker have teamed up for a new single, 11 Minutes.

Doncaster alt-rock dude YUNGBLUD, U.S. singer-songwriter Halsey and blink-182 drumming legend Travis Barker have teamed up for a new single, 11 Minutes.

“The song tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society,” YUNGBLUD explains. “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us. We don’t realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.”

Of his collaborating partners, YUNGBLUD adds: “Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream – at the end of the day we’re all rock kids. We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernise it.”

In blink-182-related news, bassist Mark Hoppus recently revealed that he wants to return to the band’s mentality of their 2003 Untitled album.

“After playing in this band for 27 years, I want to push it and do different things and take blink to places where we haven’t been before,” he told Kerrang!. “We’re really trying to do that on the new record. We want to do with our band what we did in 2003 with Untitled, where we take our foundations and go off in completely weird directions.”

Even though Mark has only just unveiled his new Simple Creatures project with All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth, he’s still hard at work on the next blink record.

“We’re in the studio all the time,” he continues. “That’s the thing, our main bands are our main focus and will always be. We all have our outside interests and our outside things, but we’re pretty straightforward with one another; blink really is everybody’s priority and that’s understood among all of us.”
