Yungblud, Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker have announced that they will team up to drop a collaborative track later today (December 1).

The collab between the three comes after MGK revealed that he is working on new music with Barker.

“This man @machinegunkelly really just came thru last night and knocked out 3 songs in a few hrs,” he wrote on Twitter last month.

Barker also appeared with MGK during the latter’s livestreamed show from The Roxy in Los Angeles in October, which saw the pair perform ‘Tickets To My Downfall’ in its entirety.

Opening up on his friendship with Yungblud, MGK previously likened the pair to Elton John and Jimi Hendrix.


“I reached out because I was a fan of everything he does, including his attitude and his way of dressing,” Kelly told NME of Yungblud.

“His raw voice is so good, and he has an immense love for rock ’n’ roll. Those energies gravitate towards each other.”

Describing their friendship as “free-spirited”, he continued: “It feels like a dope, across-the-pond thing, like: ‘You hold it down over there and I’ll hold it down over here.’ Together we can make some sort of union of rock stars. We’re like Elton John and Jimi Hendrix back in the day.”
