Over the past week, Mark Hoppus and Pete Wentz have rekindled their Twitter relationship (the same passionate affair that gave us the famed “Octo-Drive” last year), penning a series of odes to one another that mentioned “crazy-ass sandwiches” and, more notably, some mysterious new songs the two were collaborating on.
The tweets had fans of [artist id=”783″]Blink-182[/artist] and [artist id=”1235716″]Fall Out Boy[/artist] salivating. With both bands in between projects at the moment (will this be the year we finally get the new Blink record ?), speculation was rampant about what the two were up to. Well, we have the answer.
In an e-mail to MTV News, Wentz revealed that he and Hoppus had completed a song for the soundtrack to Tim Burton’s upcoming “Alice in Wonderland,” the same soundtrack that features a new song from All Time Low.
“We did a song for ’Alice in Wonderland,’ [and we] might do a few more depending on when [Mark] goes in with Blink. [It] sounds nothing like Blink or Fall Out Boy. Mark understands songwriting on a completely different level. It’s awesome to have a chance to sit in a room with him and watch him work out a melody.”
Wentz added that, though he and Hoppus plan to record more songs, this isn’t the beginning of some new supergroup. It’s more like two friends getting together and jamming. After all, both of them have rather open schedules at the moment.
“It’s just for fun. It’s not a band or even a project at this state,” Wentz wrote. “I think between me getting Starbucks on TMZ and him gearing up for a summer of Blink, we have a lot on our hands.”
A spokesperson for Walt Disney Records — who will be releasing the soundtrack — told MTV News that at the moment, no track list has been confirmed but an announcement will be made “in the coming weeks.”
