The pop punk group Blink-182 recently revealed that their follow-up to 2016’s ‘California’ will “go off in completely weird directions” and that Pharrell Williams is co-producing their new album, with pop production duo The Futuristics.

Blink-182, which is comprised of Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba – are also still working with their longtime producer John Feldmann. 43-year-old Barker said, “Feldmann’s working on the record. But we’ve also – I’ve been doing a bunch of writing just at my studio and bringing it to Feldmann’s — we also just worked with Pharrell on the album.” 

Barker said that their new record will have the same “vibe” as their 2003 self-titled debut, in that “anything goes” — and he said that the record will “definitely” drop before the band play Warped Tour this June.

Travis Barker says a new Blink-182 album will be arriving this summer
