Travis Barker's 10-year-old daughter Alabama will feature on Blink-182's new album 'California'
Travis Barker's daughter will feature on his new album.
The Blink-182 drummer has revealed 10-year-old Alabama will make an appearance on the track 'She's Out of Her Mind' off the group's new album 'California' after joining them in the recording studio.
He said: "We were still figuring out parts, and Alabama walks over to the piano and says, 'I have an idea,' and she starts playing this idea that ended up becoming the bridge part of the piano; it was very organic. I was so proud of her ...
"There's a song called 'Growing Apart.' For me, it was about our kids. You raise them, and you're so close to them: They're your everything, but you know they're going to grow up and move on ... To take their whole life as your own is the most beautiful thing in the world, and at the same time it's a really sad thing, too."
And the 40-year-old musician admits he "changed immediately" when his eldest child, Landon, 12 - who he has with ex-wife Shanna Moakler - was born and is keen to spend as much time with them as possible as they get older.
He added: "I felt myself change immediately. I started running, I boxed every day - it's just something that made me want to be the best parent I could be.
"I just want to spend as much time with them as I can. There are girls chasing my son and boys chasing my daughter - I told them if things get out of hand, we're moving far, far away. We'll have our own island somewhere."
Meanwhile, Travis also revealed he's feeling better now than he did 20 years ago.
He told PEOPLE magazine: "I'm feeling younger and better now than I did when I was 20. In the 90s, I was probably one of the most unhealthy human beings, from what I ate to what I put in my body.
"There have been so many hardships in my life. Now I know how to handle them ... I just feel so blessed ... It just goes to show it's really about how you carry yourself and how you treat yourself, and I definitely made a lifestyle change years ago that made me 100 percent better."
