Machine Gun Kelly released the title track, “Taurus”, from his semi-autobiographical film.
The Grammy-nominated rocker – whose real name is Colson Baker – is joined by Naomi Wild (Lena in the film) on the brooding duet.
MGK, 32, plays troubled rock star Cole in the film about “the darkness of fame, addiction, the artistic process and the music industry”.
His fiancée, “Transformers” star Megan Fox, 36, plays Mae in the Tim Sutton-directed feature film.
Cole’s battle with drug addiction isn’t a character, it’s actually what was going on with MGK.
He said in a recent interview, “I always asked God why I kept missing the bullet that is death.
“With all the drugs I would take, with all the strangers who only have their own selfish interests in mind when, you know, giving me things or encouraging a fall mixed in with my own self-inflicted will to sabotage myself So it wasn’t necessarily – it wasn’t even a character. [in ‘Taurus’]. It was just that I had the chance to really be me.
The ‘More Than Life’ star added: “It [destructive] side of me is where I’ve always felt most comfortable.
“I would much rather watch someone [for whom that self-destruction] is second nature to watch an actor pretend. There’s nothing more boring than watching a comedian pretend to be a rock star. It’s the worst.
MGK also shared how hiding behind his character’s messy hair helped him show off even more.
He explained: “When I was finally able to hide behind [the hair]I was able to show a lot more of myself because I didn’t have to make eye contact with anyone.
“I just have to be insular and show what’s really going on inside instead of succumbing to the pressure of what an artist is supposed to be.”
