Keen for new Blink-182 music? It could be here soon, as Mark Hoppus has been working on some new tunes while in quarantine.
Even though lockdown has taken so much away from us, it’s also giving us the goods with many musicians using their downtime to work up some new tunes. Paramore’s Hayley Williams finished her debut solo album under quarantine restrictions, and now Blink-182 seems to have something in the works.
While streaming Animal Crossing via Twitch, Mark Hoppus was chatting to fans about all sorts of music related queries. The esteemed bassist was quickly asked about what he had in the works for the future, musically, where he responded “Plans for upcoming recording? I recorded literally yesterday. So upcoming recording is happening as we speak. It was new Blink, not Simple Creatures or anything else.”

Yesterday Mark finally came back to Twitch after a long break. Here are the highlights from his live stream. Good news about new music! I think I asked him all the good questions you guys submitted. If I did not include the answers in the highlights, it’s because he didn’t really answer the questions. For instance, he joked that the song Untitled on Dude Ranch is untitled because “it has no title” and barely remembered anything about the recording of “Another Girl, Another Planet”. If you have any more questions for Mark, feel free to write them in the comment section below and I’ll do my best to ask him next time. In addition, Mark finally explained the reason why blink-182 ditched the original Josie music video. You can find the clip in our stories. We plan on telling you more about that video in next month’s newsletter. #blink182 #blink182italia
During the short Q&A session, which was captured by an Italian Blink-182 fan page, Hoppus was also seen answering questions about another Blink-182 project. The pop-punk collective has previously hinted about an upcoming collaborations EP, where drummer Travis Barker revealed they had worked with both Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell.
Hoppus didn’t trail too far into details, but simply answered the fans question with a brief “yes” before carrying on to another pressing question: Will Tom DeLonge return to the band? Yet again, we were given another short answer of simply, “I don’t know.”
