Steve Aoki Premieres New Music Video for “Why Are We So Broken” featuring Blink-182
- American DJ Steve Aoki has dropped a new music video for “Why Are We So Broken” featuring American rock band Blink-182.
Back in November, he released the fifth studio album "Neon Future III", which was served as the third chapter of his Neon Future concept albums.
The song is included on the album. Next chapter entitled "Neon Future IV", will be released in 2019.
“I’m lucky to say that the boys from blink-182 have been very close friends of mine for a while now,” Steve Aoki told Alternative Press in an interview. “I am always so happy when we get to collaborate, and this music video was nothing but fun to shoot. Their positivity and energy is contagious, and they are one of the best live bands in the world.”
- “I’ve been friends with Steve for over 15 years, [so] doing a song with Steve and my band just came so easy,” the band drummer Travis Barker explained. “I think this song is a good balance between Steve Aoki and blink-182.”
The video was directed by Brandon Dermer. “When I first heard the song, I started reflecting on my own experiences of times I felt broken or was in a broken situation,” Brandon Dermer explained. “The concept is an abstract visualization of working through a problem or issue with a loved one. Also, I love breaking stuff.”
