In addition to the already-familiar hits "Bloody Valentine" (featuring a video starring Megan Fox) and the blackbear collab "My Ex's Best Friend," the latest from MGK boasts collabs with Trippie Redd, Halsey, and Iann Dior. Barker, notably, was heavily involved with sessions for the album, which sees MGK leaning further into the pop-punk stylings previously teased on tracks like the Yungblud collab "I Think I'm Okay" from his previous album Hotel Diablo.

"The last thing I ever want to be is an angry legend," MGK said of that era of his career. Below, see clips of the Stern chat, which also included a bit of commentary on his friendship with his The Dirt and Big Time Adolescence co-star Pete Davidson:
