This is 'Halfway Dead'.



Travis Barker has collaborated with DJ Steve Aoki and Rapper Global Dan on a new track. 

'Halfway Dead' bridges the gap between peppy pop-punk, big room EDM and modern hip-hop in a way that's utterly irresistible. 

Travis had this to say about the track:

“Anytime Steve wants to do something together I am always game. Making a pop punk song together is so exciting and something we’ve never got to do before. Steve and I always have a great time making music together."

And Steve had this to say:

“It was so organic working with these guys. Collaborating with Travis, whose a rock icon, is always a good time and brings me back to my roots. With Global Dan, not only did we do this song together on my album, but I signed him and produced his whole EP on Dim Mak. He mixes worlds I love like pop-punk and hip-hop in a way that I haven’t heard done before. He’s one to watch.”

A match made in heaven.

It's not the first time that Steve and Travis have crossed paths.
