After a little hiccup, Machine Gun Kelly is gearing up to release his pop-punk album, Tickets to My Downfall, on September 25. And apparently that's not all he plans on dropping this year. During a recent interview with Rock Sound, the rapper-turned-rockstar revealed that he has three more songs with YUNGBLUD (one also featuring The Used's Bert McCracken!) that he hopes to release in 2020.
"They are so fire," he gushed during a video chat. "The reason they aren’t on the record is personal reasons. It’s because one had a feature that we’re trying to blend together, I listened to it again for the first time in a long time the other day and almost regretted not putting the energy into figuring it out earlier because I wish this song was on the album. I would be foolish to think that I’m not going to release a deluxe version of this by the holidays, which you would also want a reason to come back and hear stuff."
"I love when me and YUNGBLUD do records together because they flow so well," MGK continued. "I guess you wouldn’t know outside of ‘I Think I’m OKAY’ because we don’t have any other records out together, but you see how that blended in sounds. The other records are no different. They’re just as big and sound massive. I’m glad that we have something to re-release and re-spike around this album in a couple of months."
"It’s me, Bert [McCracken] and YUNGBLUD on one of the songs," he added. "It’s so hard dude. YUNGBLUD sounds like a new version of Bert. Their voices register on the same pitch and with that same ferocity. They can both do raspy, on pitch screams. I want to say it’s one of Travis’ most unique drum cadences I have heard him play on the whole record and the outro is the most classic of pop-punk. It was one of those things where I’m so glad that it’s on our record. It’s just a bunch of ‘Woahs’ but it’s the way that they come in. I think that it was YUNGBLUD who freestyled that."
