YUNGBLUD Taps Halsey for “11 Minutes” Featuring Travis Barker (Lyrics Review)

YUNGBLUD has dropped a brand new single and this time they are not alone. Dominic Harrison of YUNGBLUDS gets a boost by “Without Me” singer Halsey and drummer Travis Baker. The almost-rock, yet alternative-pop track is a fast-paced, energetic and hard-hitting banger from the trio.

This new upbeat track takes on the post-modern love and sings about how broken we all are in love. Talking to iHeartRadio, Dominic explained what this song means to him;

“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. We don’t realize how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.”

He also spoke about working with Halsey and Travis Barker;

“Working with Halsey and Travis was a fuc*ing dream – at the end of the day we’re all rock kids. We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernize it.”

“11 Minutes” follows their first single of 2019; “Loner.”

Kudos to the electric guitar and drums music on this track.

The song is about how the post-modern relationships are too distorted and ditracted with what is really going on in the present. Granted, that all lives have become increasingly ‘busy’ and distracted with many temporary pleasures. It is often easy to go astray and lose what is really important and more permanent things in your life.

Most likely, Generation Z, termed as the Millenials, are subject to this kind of love tragedies. We are too distracted by eeverything around us, that we have lose touch with our inner selves and become zombies when it comes to showing emotions. WhatsApp-ing, Tweet-ing, and Skype-ing has become the mode of connection and Halsey asks why you aren’t here when she is only ’11 minutes’ away from her house. This song is a modern-day tragic love story and we are all part of it.

In the refrain of the song, YUNGBLUD sings of the duality of relationships these days. A partner could very well be the ‘best’ and the ‘worst’ ever, because we have different personalities in real life and online…

YUNGBLUD also teased an upcoming music video for the song, and it looks sick!!!
