Linkin Park: 'One More Light' Album Stream & Download - Listen Now!

Linkin Park‘s brand new album called One More Light is out now!

The 10-track set comes packed with the band’s – Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Rob Bourdon and Joe Hahn – lead single “Heavy” with Kiiara and “Battle Symphony.”

“Once the album comes out and people see it live I think that they’ll be provided with so much more context,” Mike recently said about the album. “Just hearing any song, like ‘Heavy’, is just one piece of the whole. That said, though, if the only thing you want to listen to is ESP guitars through a rectifier amp then this is not the album for you. Come to a show, though, because there are songs in the set which are for you! This is not your album, though.”

One More Light is available on iTunes now!

“The thing that really drove this album was we kind of flipped our writing process backwards,” Mike said about the new album. “Historically for us the (instrumental) track usually comes first, like we’ll make a body of music and the music will inspire the lyrics. In this case, we actually flipped that around and the very first thing we’d do each day is we’d get into the studio and say, ‘What’s on my mind? What do I want to sing about and write about?’ and that defined a whole different kind of writing. It builds a wonderful foundation to put everything else on top of. And the soundmaking is actually one of the most fun parts for me, so then it’s like icing on the cake. I know I’ve got a strong song, a strong foundation and then it’s just icing to put on top of it.”

I knew about her before, before her single “Gold” had blown up,” Mike told Ryan Seacrest about working with Kiiara. “I thought, ‘what a weird thing, I never thought this girl would be a Linkin Park fan’. And eventually we met and were talking and stuff. This song came up and when the idea of getting a female vocalist on it came, the first person I thought was Kiiara.”
