Machine Gun Kelly gave his fans some great news in the New Year when he announced that he would be releasing two new studio albums in 2022.
And on Tuesday, just four days into the New Year, the Wild Boy star was spotted heading into the studio for another session with collaborator and producer Travis Barker.
The duo had previously announced their collaboration on MGK’s upcoming album, Born With Horns, before the rocker took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal that they were planning to release a second studio album in 2022.

The Houston, Texas native also donned a pair of black sneakers and wore a baseball cap over his platinum blonde dyed locks.
During the day, Kelly was seen walking out of the studio, carrying her phone, water, coffee, and a book in her hand.

Right before the New Year became official, the Forget Me Too star took to Twitter to cut down all the chatter about releasing a surprise album.
“I know the rumor was that I was releasing the album on New Years Eve … but see you in 2022,” he tweeted.
But then came the big news fans weren’t expecting: “Two albums this year,” he shared in a tweet on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 2.
So far, there is no official word on when Born With Horns, its sixth studio album, or the unexpected follow-up, will be released in 2022, although MGK has described the new songs as “heavier on guitar.” and “deeper” in terms of lyrics, according to NME.
