Tom DeLonge announces new collaborative track with Illenium, ‘Paper Thin’

Coming this week...

Tom DeLonge has announced a new collaborative song with Illenium called ‘Paper Thin’.

Taking to Twitter yesterday (October 19), the Angels & Airwaves frontman shared the track’s apocalyptic, animated official artwork while confirming that the team-up will arrive this Friday (October 23).

This comes after it was revealed earlier this month that DeLonge will be making his directorial debut with the film Monsters of California, which has been described as a “coming of age adventure with a science fiction twist”.

As well as directing and co-producing the film, DeLonge co-wrote its script with Ian Miller and will also be writing and performing original music for its soundtrack. The movie draws on the musician’s well-documented passion for UFOs and aliens.

Angels & Airwaves, meanwhile, released their latest single ‘All That’s Left Is Love’ in April. Proceeds from the track went to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

Back in May, DeLonge said he would definitely play with Blink-182 again in the future but the group have got to “figure out the timing”.
