Blink-182 dropped a new song “Quarantine” on Friday (August 7), an angsty track that is the perfect soundtrack for 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The song mentions all of the regular everyday tasks that we used to take for granted or even found frustrating before we were forced into isolation and social distancing.
“Quarantine, f— this disease / I’d rather be on Star Tours or stuck at the DMV / Quarantine, no, not for me / I thought that things were fucked up in 2019 / F— quarantine,” Mark Hoppus sings in the chorus.
“Quarantine” was recorded by Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker with no involvement from Matt Skiba, who replaced Tom Delonge in 2015, per Exclaim. The song is credited to Hoppus, Barker and co-writer Brian Lee, and not Skiba, so it is currently unclear where the band stands with him at this time.
“Quarantine” is the band’s first new music since the release of their 2019 album, Nine, with the exception of their Oliver Tree “Let Me Down” collaboration.
