Willow is tuning into her pop-punk and emo roots on her upcoming fifth album, which she previewed on April 27 via the angsty song "Transparent Soul." The track features Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and was accompanied by an equally punk visual in which Willow goes full goth in black bondage pants, giant spiky necklace, combat boots and lots of middle fingers flying.
"I don't f---ing know if it's a lie or its a fact / All your little fake friends will sell you secrets for some cash / Smile in my face, then put your cig out on my back / If you ever see me, just get to runnin' like the Flash," she sings over the beat and funky bass before the guitars rush in for the swooning chorus.
"Transparent soul / I can see right through just so you know," she sings into the camera with a smile in the accompanying video, showing off her guitar skills. According to a statement, the untitled album is due for release this summer, with Willow saying it's part of an evolution of her sound that transpired over the COVID-19 lockdown.
