Willow Smith has teamed up with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker for a new pop-punk single, “Transparent Soul.”
“Transparent Soul” is Willow’s first new material since her 2020 joint album The Anxiety with Tyler Cole. The 20-year-old singer-and-actress, daughter of Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, is set to release her fifth album this summer.
“I am so GRATEFUL and EXCITED to start this new journey ! Let the vibes commence,” Willow wrote on Instagram.
“I knew a boy just like you/He’s a snake just like you/Such a fake just like you/But I can see the truth,” Willow sings in the song, which has been influenced by Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and Blink-182.
“Transparent Soul” is also accompanied by a video featuring Willow dressed in punk attire.
Smith told Rolling Stone that the song was inspired by a quote she read from Hindu guru Radhanath Swami, which goes, “It is said that a saintly person is so pure that he or she acts like a spotless mirror. When we come in the presence of such a mirror-like soul, we can see both the beauty and ugliness of our inner life.”
