Bring Me the Horizon has released a surprise album featuring collaborations with Halsey and others.
The new effort from the British band signals a shift to more electro sounds and includes a modest eight tracks, but nothing else about it is small. There’s long songs (“Underground Big” @ 24:06), long song titles (“Dead Dolphin Sounds ‘aid brain growth in unborn child’ Virtual Therapy / Nature Healing 2 Hours”).
And, oh, the album title itself is 58 words long: Music to listen to~dance to~blaze to~pray to~feed to~sleep to~talk to~grind to~trip to~breathe to~help to~hurt to~scroll to~roll to~love to~hate to~learn Too~plot to~play to~be to~feel to~breed to~sweat to~dream to~hide to~live to~die to~Go to.
The Halsey collaboration had been talked about for months. The pop star shared video of a recording session with the band over the summer. That was after RADIO.COM actually asked Bring Me the Horizon to consider a collab with her.
“Halsey’s awesome. It’s really cool that she’s a fan and being supportive- we love that,” frontman Oli Sykes said. “We’d never say no to anyone, but at the same time, we wouldn’t just work with someone because they were famous. If it weren’t right, we wouldn’t do it just for the sake of it.”
The album is the second release from Bring Me the Horizon this year after amo.
