Blink-182 Want "Happy Days" In Latest Single From Upcoming Album
Blink-182 continue to tease their upcoming eighth studio album with yet another single release—this time an uplifting track called "Happy Days," released on the 182nd day of the year, which the band has dubbed "Blink-182 Day."
"It’s the 182nd day of the year which means it’s blink-182 day! To celebrate, here is our new song “Happy Days.” Consume it where you usually consume music," the band tweeted.
In the past, the GRAMMY-nominated Southern California pop-punk band has dropped their usual humor for tougher subjects— songs like "Stay Together For The Kids" hit on pain and grief. "Happy Days" has the group adding a light at the end of the tunnel to similar feelings.
"Hey kid, don't quit your daydream yet/ I know you feel locked out in the cold," lead vocalist Mark Hoppus sings in the third single from the forthcoming album. "Seems like you’re lost and alone/ Hey kid, don't listen to your head/ It only fills you with dread and with doubt."
He continues in the chorus: "I wanna feel happy days, happy days/ Happy days, happy days/ Walls of isolation inside of my pain/ And I don't know if I'm ready to change."
While the band has yet to announce an album release date, they've been dropping singles; They released the 50-second fast punk "Generational Divide" late June.
