One More Time
Blink-182 have just shared the official video for album title track ‘One More Time’. On Monday, the trio Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker previewed three songs from first album together since 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’ in an album announcement trailer during an Apple Music interview.
‘Anthem Part 3,’ ‘One More Time’ and ‘You Don’t Know What You’ve Got’ from the album ‘One More Time’ all featured in a four-minute trailer from Blink-182’s upcoming interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
‘One More Time’ is scheduled to be released in only four weeks on 20th October. Pre-Order the album here: https://www.blink182.com/https://blink182.lnk.to/ONEMORETIME
‘One More Time’ marks the band’s first album with a welcomed back DeLonge since 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’, following the guitarist’s exit to pursue extraterrestrial endeavors, Hoppus and Barker then released two LPs with guitarist Matt Skiba, 2016’s ‘California’ and 2019’s ‘Nine’.
As the band explains in the trailer, it was Hoppus’ bout with lymphoma that inspired DeLonge to rejoin the band,
“I remember telling my wife, ‘I don’t think I’m ever going to play music again, I don’t think I’m ever gonna tour again,” DeLonge says in the clip.
“Until Mark told me he was sick, and then I was like, that’s the only thing I wanted to do.”
Similarly, after the band initially broke up in 2008, it was Barker surviving the plane crash that killed four people (including DJ AM) that catalyzed their reunion at that time. The album’s first single and title track,
“‘One More Time’ touches on how tragedy brings the band back together.” Barker said.
“I wish they told us/It shouldn’t take a sickness/Or airplanes falling out the sky,” Hoppus touchingly sings on the single.
The full Lowe interview will hit Apple Music soon but see the four-minute version below. -One More Time’ also includes the group’s first reunion single, ‘Edging’.
Next month Blink-182 kick off their UK tour after a false start in Glasgow when Travis had to rush home due to a family emergency. The tour will now kick off in London on 11th October.
