blink-182 are slated to drop their highly anticipated album, and although we still don’t have an official release date, it looks like the band may be giving us something else to look forward to this year.
During the interview, Barker shares that the song they recorded with Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell Williams would not be appearing on the forthcoming album.
Instead, the song will be released on an EP the blink plan to drop later this year.
“It’s not gonna come out on the album – it’s gonna come out probably on the EP that comes later this year,” Barker says in the interview. “But blink just did a song with [Lil] Uzi [Vert], that’s the most mind-blowing thing ever – with Pharrell.
So you have these things now where like, where Uzi is out at Pharrell’s studio and he’s like ‘yo I just did this song with blink’, so Uzi is like ‘I gotta get on that’. So it’s almost coming full circle, but maybe it’s not coming full circle in rock – it’s actually affecting a whole other genre of music.”

blink-182 to release an EP later this year? 🤔 According to Travis, the song that blink-182 wrote with Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Lil Uzi Vert will not be featured on their upcoming album, but on an EP “that happens later this year”. I would recommend taking this piece of information with a grain of salt because these things tend to change a lot over time. Anyway, it really seems that blink-182 is determined to take a more modern approach and release new music much more often, as is commonplace in today’s music industry. #blink182 #blink182italia
