Two days before the release of their first album in seven years, Angels & Airwaves released a new track called “Timebomb”. “Timebomb” is the last of the 10 song album, LIFE FORM, which comes out this Friday via Rise Records / BMG, an album that explores a variety of subjects but which is largely centered on the theme of interpersonal relationships. Speaking on “Timebomb,” Tom DeLonge said, ““ Timebomb ”is a special song for me because it represents the emotional equivalent of an armed device about to explode. I think everyone can relate to it. the pressure of life weighing on a young adolescent heart.
Released with a visualizer, the song has a nostalgic ’90s-style debut, with the synths playing a sharp beat as the distorted vocals enter the mix. DeLonge’s distinct voice picks up the catchy tune, singing “Hey sad little girl / I really wanna hold you / Your heart is like a time bomb / And it’s gonna start killing you / But in a world so sad / There is still has things to discover / It is possible to hang on / Because your story is not over ”he sings to the listener The hopeful tone of what the future may hold pervades the entire song, as the viewer passes through a video camera recording a screen with distinct images of a young woman and other distorted visuals.
