It’s been awhile since we last heard new music from Linkin Park, but it seems the band had been preparing something very different and exciting for us all along.
LP introduced their upcoming album, One More Light, with a new track and it looks like they’ll be slightly changing their focus this time. Lead single Heavy, which features Kiiara’s unique vocals, sounds more instrumental and actually less ‘heavy’ than the band’s previous work. Frontman Chester Bennington’s voice is mellower than ever, although it’s still distinctive of his rock passion!
Judging from Heavy, the new record is bound to feel more personal and perhaps a little more stripped down compared to LP’s usual electronically-distorted sounds. The band also gave a special live performance of the song and of a few of their older hits during a live session on their Facebook page, where they further explained the writing process behind the new album.
* One More Light is due for release on May 19th.
