Travis was asked "within a couple months?" and his response made it seem like it would be coming well within that time frame.

They're the songs we know of so far. The orders made up

I really hope it's not re sequenced with California and they're just 14 songs on their own.

I was just thinking that. I feel like it would be a lot more work to resequence it so I'm assuming it won't be.

Here's more info from the Billboard interview

http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7632325/blink-182-interview-california-deluxe-grammy-2017-travis-barker-mark-hoppus

Can you give us a preview of the studio music you’ve done the last couple of weeks?

Hoppus: It’s almost, it’s more than a whole other record, it’s a double album at this point and it’s more of an extension of what we did in the studio earlier. Some of the songs were songs that we did not put on the first album, but are great songs. And some are brand new that we just wrote last week, a lot of high-energy songs, punk rock, some more ballad-y songs, a little more electronic experimentation, it’s a good mix. It’s not a collection of throwaway songs, it’s like a whole other album.

Barker: We’re working on the deluxe album and I got in a conversation with [producer John] Feldmann this morning. I was like, “Dude, we got a problem, the deluxe album might even be better than California.” It’s a good problem to have, but, oh shit, it’s incredible. It’s kind of like a mind f--- because it should almost be a new album. But it just goes to show how natural and organic things are happening and how fun this process has been because it’s not hard to go write great songs and make fun music that we love creating and listening to. And the results are great. The deluxe album will be neck-and-neck with California. It’s in no way fillers. 

Are there songs you are particularly excited to play?

Barker: Yeah, there are like four songs that didn’t make the album that we’re putting on there. But then there are brand-new songs like “Wildfire” and “Parking Lot” and “Misery” that are all so f---ing strong, man. It’s amazing. We started writing maybe a week and a half ago and I think we have 14 songs. It’s a good problem to have. I’m really excited about this deluxe edition. It’s gonna be incredible. 

Hoppus: There’s a song called “Misery” that we just wrote and a song called “Wildfire” that are both pretty high-energy, anthemic, huge choruses, I think will go over really well.

They're writing the songs too fast, yeah I said it.  Wasn't Untitled written over the course of a summer with tons of up & downs to get to perfecting it? 2 weeks, 14 songs, not a fan. You feel the difference in quality vs quantity.

I actually completely disagree.  Blink taking forever to write pop punk records always pissed me off.  This isn't Mozart.

Time to churn out some tunes and have some fun.

Everything they do nowadays with Feldie is "the best thing" and "so good". Sounds like Tom on painkillers...

I'm treating this an entire new album mentally. Pretty pumped.

Also, Enema took two weeks and is widely regarded as their best album (not by me, but by most)
