A day after teasing the new track and just hours since unveiling their album’s tracklist and cover, blink-182 are sharing next single “Darkside.”

Matt Skiba leads the track, which despite its title, offers up a sunny vibe perfect for the summer months.

On Wednesday, blink began teasing the track with a hotline appearing on their socials. When dialed, a 15-second clip of the new track plays.

The song follows the release of previous singles “Blame It On My Youth” “Generational Divide” and “Happy Days,” all of which will appear on their much-teased new album.

The band finally confirmed the release date on Good Morning America last Friday. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, they shared the album cover, title and tracklist earlier today.

blink-182 “Darkside” lyrics

She’s a girl dressed in black from another world
Listen, breathe‚ it’s like a girl from another world
She don’t know my name (She don’t know my name)
She don’t have the time of day
Celebrate‚ medicate ’til we numb the pain
In the sun‚ it’s still dark, like it always rains
She don’t feel the same (She don’t feel the same)
She don’t have the time of day

And I wait, and I wait‚ and I wait
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait for her
And I wait‚ and I wait, and I wait
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait for her

I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you

She’s a girl, I look back to what could have been
Her cloak and dagger, mouth tastes like medicine
She won’t last the night (She won’t last the night)
Spun out in the neon lights
You would leave, but you need me to numb the pain
You’re possessed and you slept through another day
You don’t feel the same, and I don’t have the strength to stay

And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait for her
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wait for her

I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you

(Oh) I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
(Oh) I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you

I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I don’t care what you say, no
I don’t care what you do
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
I’m goin’ to the dark side with you
