Travis Barker has now revealed that Lil Uzi Vert will be appearing on Blink-182‘s upcoming album. During a recent interview on Spotify‘s Rock This with Allison Hagendorf podcast, the famed drummer notes that the band is working with the Eternal Atake rapper and Pharrell on a track. “There’s a song with Uzi that’s really, really cool that we did with Pharrell.”
Going on to say, “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 a reggae-feeling song. I don’t think Blink will ever be anything but a pop-punk band. That’s who we are, and I feel like our fans have journeyed with us when we’ve done songs like ‘Miss You’ or ballads like ‘Adam’s Song.’”
Revealing that the track on the next album from the beloved rock band will function a something of a collision that references his core inspirations.
“But we’re never going to veer too far off from what we are. I’m a punk kid at heart, you know what I mean? Whether it’s pop-punk with Blink or whatever with [Machine Gun Kelly] or whatever with Trippie [Redd], that’s where my heart’s at. I was raised on rap music and punk rock music. It’s all I know.”
