Tom DeLonge says *this* song represented his vision for Blink-182’s future

Geffen RecordsTom DeLonge says that Blink-182's song "Ghost on the Dance Floor" -- from the 2011 album Neighborhoods -- represents his vision for what the group's sound could become.

Responding to a fan asking if he could play "Ghost" on his current tour with Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge said, "Wish we could. I love that song."

"I remember writing it thinking about what the future Blink could/should sound like," DeLonge explained, adding that his now-former band mates Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker "sound amazing" on the track.

Neighborhoods was Blink's first album in eight years, and their first to follow their 2005 breakup and subsequent 2009 reunion. It would turn out to be DeLonge's last record with the band; he and Blink parted ways in 2015.

Blink has since released the album California in 2016 with Matt Skiba in place of DeLonge. Another record, Nine, arrives September 20.

DeLonge and Angels & Airwaves are currently in the middle of their first tour in seven years. The group has dropped two new songs in 2019: "Rebel Girl" and "Kiss & Tell."
