  1. Psycho

    Psycho is a song recorded by Australian singer-songwriter Amy Shark featuring Mark Hoppus of Blink-182. The song was released on 22 June 2018 as an album pre-order track and as the third single from Shark's debut studio album Love Monster. Shark exclaimed the release of the track was "the greatest day of her life". Speaking to Beats 1's Zane Lowe Hoppus said he met Shark in Los Angeles and she asked him to work on something together to which he agreed. Hoppus said “Amy had this great idea for a song and for me it was a lot easier than working with a lot of other artist because her music is so sparse. A lot of times it's just her and a guitar, so even just her an acoustic guitar and maybe a beat behind it. My job was really easy, I just had to not over add stuff to kill the idea that she already had.”
