More on YUNGBLUD, Halsey and Travis Barker’s “11 Minutes”
Last month, Halsey and YUNGBLUD began teasing a truly triple-threat collab with blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The track dropped shortly after, and the duo surprised fans with a pop-up shop and first live performance hours later.
As if all of that wasn’t exciting enough, next they began teasing us with a music video, and it’s finally here.
Melded with Barker’s incomparable drumming, Halsey and YUNGBLUD’s powerful pipes relay a love story ending in self-sabotage.
“The song tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society,” YUNGBLUD explains. “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us. We don’t realize how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.”
That self-sabotage is quite present in the video, highlighting the couple journeying through the stages of grief in a Groundhog Day or Happy Death Day type of scenario. Barker also appears throughout the clip, which is directed by award-winning filmmaker Colin Tilley.
