Linkin Park have been quite quiet of late, but that is all set to change with the news that they are about to launch their brand new single ‘Burn It Down,’ which will be released as a digital download next week on Monday, April 16.
‘Burn It Down’ is to be the lead song from their currently untitled upcoming fifth studio album due out in June, and frontman Chester Bennington has revealed why the band chose it to be the first single.
He said to MTV: "All of our songs take these really big creative turns and twists throughout the process, so sometimes songs will start out as a melody or some musical chord progressions. Other times, they'll start out as beats, and the next thing you know they kind of evolve over the course of the making of the album.
"But what's interesting about this track is the really high energy and the really strong electronic melodies and hooks kind of set this song apart, which is why we chose it as our first single.”
Chester went on to talk about their change in musical direction: "We've kind of drifted into a lot more kind of electronic, digital feel, but what's interesting about this record is that a lot of songs - people might pick up on this - but a lot of the songs kind of were started as these folk-driven songs.
"So there's a very organic element to the record, as well as a very modern, kind of futuristic element too. We can't wait for our fans to hear it."
We can’t wait to hear it either – it sounds pretty weird!
