Blink 182 : Grimes, Pharrell Williams sur le prochain album.

Alors qu’il s’est invité un peu partout ces derniers temps, on apprend que Travis Barker et sa troupe des Blink-182 ont invité pas mal de monde sur leur prochain album dont Grimes, Lil Uzi Vert ou encore Pharrell Williams. Autant dire que c’est open bar dans la volonté de faire des guests bankables (ou à même de faire du buzz sur NRJ), le batteur qui « date » une Kardashian explique :

« There’s like a song with Grimes right now that’s really, really cool that I love. There’s a song with Uzi that’s really, really cool that we did with Pharrell.” But that track is closer to the world of reggae than hip-hop. 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’. 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? Whether it’s like pop-punk with Blink or whatever with [Machine Gun Kelly] or whatever with Trippie, that’s where my heart’s at. Like, I was raised on rap music and punk rock music. It’s kind of all I know… »

Le prochain album serait fini à 60% et se terminerait doucement pou une sortie espérée en 2021.
