The Chainsmokers reveal Blink-182 collaboration on new album out this week
During a hectic set at The Forum in Los Angeles, The Chainsmokers unveiled a stunning collaboration with blink-182 ahead of the release of their new album “World War Joy” next week. The American duo made the announcement in emphatic style, bringing out the Californian rock band to perform the track alongside them for first time ever.
The track, thought to be called “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy” is one that Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have been repeatedly playing out on tour, but its only now that the two entities have combined live, leaving the audience in complete awe. “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy” combines Drew’s effortless vocals with the lyrical talents of blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. On stage, they proved why the collaboration was destined to be; a true masterstroke in production and genre transcendence. One can only imagine the outlandish ideas they must have worked on in what must have been a crazy-yet-valuable studio experience for both parties.
Later on in the same performance in Los Angeles, Taggart went on to confirm the release of their third studio album, which will follow in the footsteps of incredibly successful works; “Memories…Do Not Open” (2017) and “Sick Boy” (2018). The blink-182 collaboration is understood to be set as a feature on “World War Joy”, likely alongside another of their latest releases “Push My Luck”. As we count down the days until the albums release on the 6th of December, check out The Chainsmokers and blink-182 performing their new track together for the first time below!
