Following her collaboration with Blink-182‘s Travis Barker, Willow Smith is continuing to explore her punk rock sound.

The daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith has announced Lately I Feel Everything, a new, pop-punk-inspired album due out July 16. The record includes her song with Barker, “Transparent Soul,” as well as a brand-new track called “Lipstick,” available now for digital download.

“In the guitar world, it’s heavily dominated by white men,” Willow tells Billboard. “I just wanted to come in and f*** it up. I hope to see more women of color rocking out and playing guitar and bass, and I want to be their cheerleader. I want to be in their service.”

“I wanted to let other people of color know that we should be able to do whatever we want; we should be able to scream and growl and shred,” Smith adds of the upcoming record. “And with the history of what we’ve had to endure in this country, I think that rock is a pretty perfect place to do that.”
