Mark Hoppus is getting back to normal following his year-long battle with lymphoma cancer.

In a new interview, the Blink-182 bassist and co-vocalist shared his optimism, declaring that he’s “glad to be here” and “just getting back out into it.”

When asked if he had new music to release, he said, “Hopefully soon. We’ll see if I can write something happy this time.”

He went on to say, “I most want to get back out into the studio and get back to playing music, and get off of my couch.”

What are you thankful for right now?
