Label: Interscope Records


Unter dem Titel Lockdown Sessions coverte Machine Gun Kelly, bürgerlich Colson Baker, bereits während der letzten Wochen in der Quarantäne diverse Klassiker, darunter auch “Misery Buisness” von Paramore. Am 01.05.2020 war es dann endlich soweit und er veröffentlichte seine neue Single “Bloody Valentine”, die als Auftakt seines neuen Pop-Punk Album “Tickets to my Downfall” dient, welches noch dieses Jahr erscheinen soll.

In Bloody Valentine, welches von Travis Barker, von blink-182, produziert wurde, geht es um eine komplexe und verführerische Liebesgeschichte. Er selber stellt auf Twitter seine Regeln zum Song auf, die jeder befolgen soll, wenn er diesen Song hört: ”must play while driving with all windows down during the daytime at least once, must air guitar/air drum in your room blasting it loud as fuck at least once, must send it to a friend, must listen at least 25 times.”

Außerdem hat MGK auf Spotify eine Playlist mit Songs zusammengestellt, die ihn für sein neues Album inspiriert haben. Mit dabei sind unter anderem The Killers, Shawn Mendes, Rihanna, Lagwagon, No Use For A Name und Machine Gun Kelly selbst.

“I hope that this project, for an audience broader than what’s already listening to music that has instruments in it, I hope that this album inspires some kids to go and pick a guitar up, Because it really is uncommon for a 15-year-old to have been to a concert where anyone’s playing an instrument. It is weird. But I’ve had plenty of people be like, ‘Dude, this is the first time I’ve ever seen someone play a guitar live, it’s crazy, I wanna do it. Ultimately,I hope that this is an album that lives with people for the rest of their lives — those albums that I remember coming out in the summer time, or in the fall time when I was back to school.’’ – Machine Gun Kelly über sein Album

Die am 16.06. erschienene Akustik-Version des Songs, inklusive Video indem MGK mit seiner Gitarre auf seinem Motorrad den Sonnenuntergang entgegen singt,  könnt ihr hier genießen:

Songtext:

[Verse 1]
The simulation just went bad
But you’re the best I ever had
Like hand prints in wet cement
She touched me it’s permanent
In my head, in my head
I couldn’t hear anything you said but
In my head, in my head
I’m calling you girlfriend, what the fuck

[Chorus]
I don’t do fake love, but I’ll take some from you tonight
I know I’ve got to go but I might just miss the flight
I can’t stay forever, let’s play pretend
And treat this night like it’ll happen again
You’ll be my bloody valentine tonight

[Verse 2]
I’m overstimulated and I’m sad
I don’t expect you to understand
It’s nothing less than true romance
Or am I just making a mess
In my head in my head
I’m laying naked with you yeah
In my head, in my head
I’m ready to die holding your hand

[Chorus]
I don’t do fake love, but I’ll take some from you tonight
I know I’ve got to go but I might just miss the flight
I can’t stay forever, let’s play pretend
And treat this night like it’ll happen again
You’ll be my bloody valentine tonight

[Bridge]
I can’t hide
How I feel about you
Inside
Id give everything up
Tonight
If I could just have you be mine
Be mine baby baby
I can’t hide
How I feel about you
Inside
I’d give everything up
Tonight
If I could just have you be mine
Be mine baby
(i can not hide these feelings, no
I can not hide these feelings
I’d give up everything for you
I’d give up everything)

[Chorus]
I don’t do fake love, but I’ll take some from you tonight
I know I’ve got to go, but I might just miss the flight
I can’t stay forever, let’s play pretend
And treat this night like it’ll happen again
You’ll be my bloody valentine tonight
