While I already had the chance to listen to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis Barker[/lastfm]’s upcoming album, Give The Drummer Some, most people haven’t heard anything from it besides the first two released tracks “Can A Drummer Get Some” and “Carry It,” which both feature a slew of hip hop artists.
Today, Travis decided to send over one of the few KROQ-esque tracks that made the album, called “Saturday Night,” which features [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Transplants[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Slash[/lastfm], to Stryker for an exclusive KROQ world premiere. If you’re unaware, The Transplants are one of Barker’s side projects involving Tim Armstrong of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rancid[/lastfm] and their longtime friend Skinhead Rob.
The song has a very different sound than what you may be expecting, but the Spanish-style guitar noodling of Slash in the background mixed with the vocals of Armstrong and Rob actually works very well together. Give it a listen after the jump, you’ll be glad you did.
Give the track a listen and let us know what you think in the comments section.
