Blink-182‘s new album will feature Grimes, Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell Williams.
According to drummer Travis Barker, the follow-up to the band’s 2019 album Nine features those acts and is “60 percent done.” Last month, Barker had confirmed that the album would arrive in 2021.
“There’s like a song with Grimes right now that’s really, really cool that I love,” Barker told Spotify‘s Allison Hagendorf.
“There’s a song with Uzi that’s really, really cool that we did with Pharrell.”
He added, “I mean, it’s not like Blink’s making a rap song or anything. It’s like bringing Uzi over to our world. So it’s more of a punk kind of like reggae feeling song, I don’t think Blink will ever be anything but a pop-punk band. I mean, that’s who we are.”
“And I feel like our fans have kind of journeyed with us when we’ve done songs like ‘Miss You’ or ballads like ‘Adam’s Song,'” Barker continued. “But, like, we’re never going to veer too far off from what we are – like, I’m like a punk kid at heart, you know what I mean?”
