YUNGBLUD, Halsey & Travis Barker - 11 Minutes
Halsey and Yungblud have released a new collaborative single called 11 Minutes. The song is assisted by Travis Barker, and features contributions from Matt Schwartz, Zakk Cervini, and Chris Greatti. The song itself is a brooding ballad with the chorus lyric: "I'm 11 minutes away and I have missed you all day // I'm 11 minutes away, so why aren't you here?". From the guitar intro to the vocal performances, it's stunning. Discussing the track, YUNGBLUD said, “The song tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society. We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us.’’

His notoriously off-beat and strained vocals remain intact throughout, layering the Grime-styled breakbeat with his visually depictive lyrics of everyday Northampton life.

We are all over-connected, over-informed, and we don’t care anymore about some real things.
