YUNGBLUD And Halsey feat. Travis Barker – ’11 Minutes’

’11 Minutes’, from YUNGBLUD And Halsey, featuring Travis Barker, is now available via Locomotion/Geffen Records.

Speaking of the track, YUNGBLUD explains,

“The song tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society. 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 realise how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.”

Made with producer/songwriters Matt Schwartz (Cold War Kids, Kylie Minogue), Zakk Cervini (Good Charlotte, Mayday Parade) and Chris Greatti (Grimes, Black Veil Brides), the hypnotic track combines moody guitar work and high-powered drumming with Halsey and YUNGBLUD’s urgent vocal exchange to spin the story of a couple that sabotages their relationship before it’s really even begun by caving in to societal pressures.

With Halsey – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-Platinum singer/songwriter who recently topped Billboard‘s Hot 100 with her 2x Platinum hit ‘Without Me’ – and GRAMMY® Award-nominated musician Travis Barker – who has sold millions of records with his bands blink-182, Transplants, +44, and solo work, and madeRolling Stone’s list of the greatest drummers of all time – YUNGBLUD found like-minded souls who shared his vision.

“Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream – at the end of the day we’re all rock kids,” says YUNGBLUD. “We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernise it.”

YUNGBLUD & Halsey feat. Travis Barker – ’11 Minutes’ follows YUNGBLUD’s early-2019 single Loner‘, a gloriously sneering anthem for outsiders. Cumulative streams of YUNGBLUD’s songs now exceed 90 million.

The video for ‘Loner’, which has more than two million views, can be seen here:

Born in Yorkshire, England, multi-instrumentalist YUNGBLUD (real name Dominic Harrison) plays guitar, bass, piano, and drums. He first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs when he was only 10. At an early age, YUNGBLUD moved to London to kick-start his career. In 2018, he released his debut album, 21st Century Liability, and played such festivals as Reading & Leeds, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the final Vans Warped Tour. His current headline tour of Australia, Europe and the U.K. is completely sold out.
