It looks like Blink-182 has been listening to a lot of Mumford & Sons, or at least been paying attention to British folksters' sales. In an interview in Rolling Stone, Blink drummer Travis Barker said one song on the band's forthcoming EP will be "very folky."

"I don't even know," he told Rolling Stone. "It's way out. We all had some ideas. I went in the studio and I was just playing around. I had my electronic kit and I just played a straight drum pattern over it, and it sounded crazy. It changed the entire shape of the song."

Barker also said the new EP, which will be out by Christmas, is much better than Blink's last album, 2011's Neighborhoods

"To me already, this EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods," he said. "Because we're all in a room together." Neighborhoods was mostly recorded with the band members in separate locations.

And in even better news for fans, the band is going right back into the studio in February to start working on their next full-length, which they hope to have out by the end of 2013.
