NEW MUSIC: MACHINE KELLY | PAPERCUTS (FEATURING TRAVIS BAKER)
Earlier this week, singer-songwriter Machine Gun Kelly announced that his next album is called “Born with Horns” and unveiled the first taste “Papercuts” along with a music video. The Cole Bennett-directed video features Barker, who is executively producing ‘Born With Horns,’ playing drums. Kelly is also seen in the clip sporting a shaved head, a look he first showed off on social media earlier this week. He has partnered once again with Barker, who is quite possibly the busiest drummer in music after only recently contributing to singles by Willow Smith, K. Flay, KennyHoopla and more – on his new track "Papercuts," this time MGK opts for a more emo-style arrangement. Kelly and Barker showed off their matching ‘Born With Horns’ tattoos earlier this week to celebrate the announcement of the former’s new album, which will be the follow-up to last year’s "Tickets To My Downfall." Last month Machine Gun Kelly surprised fans with a last-minute set at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival. He took to the Bud Light Seltzer Sessions side stage to perform “20 times” what the space allowed for to a crowd. Kelly’s eight-track set included the "Tickets To My Downfall" track "Kiss Kiss" and a cover of Paramore‘s "Misery Business." MGK then ran through several other cuts from his latest album, including "Bloody Valentine" and "My Ex’s Best Friend."
