YUNGBLUD Calls On Halsey & Travis Barker For New Single, “11 Minutes”
EDIT: The post has been updated with the dramatic video, which was directed by Colin Tilley. Watch it below.
YUNGBLUD has been making waves for a while now thanks to a well-received debut album (21st Century Liability is worth hunting down) and a string of increasingly viral rock anthems. The 20-year-old Brit is due for a major commercial breakthrough and he just might get it with “11 Minutes.” A collaboration with Halsey and Travis Barker, the instantly-catchy track has a Valentine’s Day-friendly message. “[It] tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society,” Dominic Harrison (his real name) explains.
“We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us,” YUNGBLUD continues. “We don’t realize how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.” The rising star also sang the praises of his collaborators. “Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream — at the end of the day we’re all rock kids,” he reveals. “We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernize it.”
