Machine Gun Kelly‘s upcoming album Born with Horns will feature a guest spot from WILLOW.

That news comes courtesy of Travis Barker in a conversation with WILLOW as part of Rolling Stone‘s ongoing “Musicians on Musicians” series. In the piece, the Blink-182 drummer reveals that WILLOW is featured on a song apparently called “Emo Prom.”

“On ‘Emo Prom,’ you shine,” Barker tells WILLOW. “Obviously you remember, but when we first sent it to you we were like, ‘Yeah, we even have a verse written.’ And your verse was insane compared to ours.”

“Honestly, to be a Black woman and be able to come on that song and write my verse with my outlook on life — just being able to be authentically me on that song — those are the kinds of things that are going to make more people feel seen,” WILLOW says. “That’s the most beautiful part of music.”

The collab with MGK will follow WILLOW’s new pop-punk album, lately I feel EVERYTHING, which includes the Barker-featuring single “Transparent Soul,” as well a song with Avril Lavigne.

Born with Horns is the follow-up to Machine Gun Kelly’s 2020 album, Tickets to My Downfall, which Barker also produced. The new record will feature the lead single, “Papercuts.”
