Blink-182 has released a new single called “Edging,” marking the band’s first song with Tom DeLonge in over 10 years.

The track features both DeLonge and Mark Hoppus handling lead vocals in the verses while harmonizing together in the chorus and features some classic Blink juvenile humor.

Drummer Travis Barker, who produced “Edging,” says, “I wanted to imagine as a listener what I wanted to experience and at the same time as a band member what we wanted to make and say and most importantly how it would sound production wise in 2022.”

You can listen to “Edging” now via digital outlets. Its accompanying video will premiere Friday at noon ET.

Earlier this week, Blink announced that they’d reunited with DeLonge, who’d been out of the band since 2015. The trio will embark on a worldwide tour in 2023 and plan to release a new album that DeLonge calls the “best album of our career.”

In DeLonge’s absence, Blink featured Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba on guitar and vocals. Following the reunion news, DeLonge shared a message he sent Skiba thanking him for “all that you have done to keep the band alive and thriving.”
