Linkin Park recently confirmed the release of their new single, “Heavy”, was on its way, and we will give you the first listen Thursday, Feburary 16th at 10:15am. If that isn’t good enough we will be playing the song every hour on the hour for the rest of the day!
The band has been pretty mum since 2014, when they released The Hunting Party. If you aren’t stoked for a new Linkin Park album quite yet, lead singer Chester Bennington and co vocalist Mike Shinoda recently discussed the new album online, and it should get you hyped. Bennington described the new album in an online video series as, “We’re trying to connect with people. We’re trying to make a record that has f**king stellar songs people want to listen to all the time.” Shinoda, in a YouTube Q&A, was quoted as saying, “I can’t tell you what it sounds like. I can tell you you’re going to be surprised. You gotta expect the unexpected. Don’t expect what you’ve heard before.”
The band also just released the album artwork for their 7th studio album through a series of puzzles on their social media. No release date or title has been announced yet.
“Heavy” features co vocal from Kiara Saulters, also known as Kiiara. She is best known for her hit song “Gold”, which took top 40 radio by storm later last year. The hip hop, stop beat artist whose left of center pop sounds please various musical tastes should certainly add a unique touch to Linkin Park’s new single. Be sure to tune in at 10:15am and all day tomorrow to hear the new song!
