WILLOW is boldly entering the world of pop-punk, sharing an awesome new collaboration with (who else?!) blink-182s Travis Barker.

The 20-year-old artist – who’s musically inspired by the likes of My Chemical Romance, Paramore and Fall Out Boy – teams up with the drumming legend on t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l, revealing that, I am so grateful for this tune because it was created in such an introspective time – during the first couple months of quarantine. It was the song that proved to me that I needed to let go of the insecurities I had about making a project of this genre.”

Speaking of which, WILLOW continues: I realised that it’s not my voice that can’t sing this kind of music. I was afraid to sing this kind of music because I wasn’t sure what people would think.”
