Back in April, a video leaked of Krewella working in the studio with Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz. They were pretty mum on the entire situation then, and it died as quickly as it rose. With their forthcoming Get Wet album due out in another month, now was probably the time to get into what this song could be. Yasmine recently spoke to Las Vegas Weekly and spilled the beans on the single and how it came about, and it looks like not only will Wentz be featured, but so will blink-182′s Travis Barker:
“When I was around 11 and Jahan was 13, we always used to listen to bands like Good Charlotte, Sum 41, Green Day, Fall Out Boy. Then I went into indie rock, and that’s when I started as the singer of this indie rock band that lasted about four years for me. I wrote tons of music with them, and that inspired me so much. I listened to nothing but Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse, but Jahan and I also grew up on The Cure, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, all those. At the same time we were also listening to things like ABBA. We were all over the place. But now coming back around, when we started making this album, we started pulling from those places again.
We have this song on the album —I’m not really supposed to talk about this, but whatever—that’s a collaboration with Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy and Travis Barker from Blink-182. It’s the three of us together on one song, and it’s like the culmination of my adolescent years, the coolest thing that’s every happened to me. When we were in the studio with Patrick Stump writing this song, it was one of those moments when I realized there’s no other type of music I’d rather be making. … I don’t even know how to place us anymore. But that’s I guess a good thing. You don’t cater to one kind of fan. You cater to the people who never lost that love for pop-punk when they were 12, as much as anyone else.”
