Amy Shark has revealed the final track listing to her highly anticipated, forthcoming debut albumLOVE MONSTER, confirming Mark Hoppus from Blink -182 features on the album track ‘Psycho’– the latest offering and instant grat from Shark’s upcoming full-length debut.
The trackwas co-written, produced and features vocals by Hoppus, recorded at the iconic Sound City Studios in LA. On ‘Psycho’Amy reveals, “Every time I play the song I have a dirty grin on my face – is this actually on my debut album?”
Used to penning her songs solo, Shark threw herself into the deep end on LOVE MONSTERteaming up with a number of industry big names. In addition to partnering with A list collaboratorHoppus, Shark joined forces with Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid, Broods) to co-write and produce‘Never Coming Back’ and partnered with Bleachers front man, Jack Antonoff, where the pairco-wrote and produced ‘All Loved Up’.
“It got me out of my comfort zone, out of my own little writing world. To have people give you feedback as you’re doing it, and they’re not just anyone, I was lucky to be able to skip straight to working with the big dogs. And they’re the big dogs because they know exactly what your strengths are and what you might be struggling with. It was awesome.”
