The upcoming expanded edition of Blink-182's 2016 album California will basically feature a whole new album of previously unreleased tracks, with 11 new songs and an acoustic edition of the original album's "Bored to Death." You can get a preview of the fresh tunes via the throwback 1990's rocker "Parking Lot."
The galloping punk pop tune mixes a lyrical homage to Joni Mitchell's iconic 1970s single "Big Yellow Taxi" (via the line "F--k this place/ Let's put up a parking lot"), with fond memories of being young, wild and free. In addition to reminiscing about going to see Naked Raygun at the Cabaret Metro in Chicago, Blink recall the good old days of drinking on trains on the way to shows and getting in fights, blasting songs by The Smiths and Violent Femmes and nursing their skating injuries while loitering on the curb outside the local Target.
The expanded California will be available on May 19 and you can pre-order it now and get an instant download of "Parking Lot."
