Spin.com telah memposting wawancara mereka dengan Chester Bennington mengenai album baru yang kabarnya akan rilis bulan Juni. Dalam wawancara itu, mereka diperdengarkan beberapa lagu baru Linkin Park. "Lost In The Echo", "In My Remains", "Castle Of Glass", "I'll Be Gone" dan tentu saja lead single Linkin Park yang akan rilis 16 April nanti, "Burn It Down". Mereka juga mengatakan, Linkin Park akan berkolaborasi dengan Owen Pallet. Owen adalah seorang composer dan violinist dari band Arcade Fire.
Shinoda and Bennington played five of the new songs for SPIN and sure enough, they felt like an improvement on an old family recipe (albeit one you'd most likely use to piss off the rest of your family). "Lost in the Echo" featured a staccato guitar attack, tribal drums, crystalline keys and some brutal screams, but it also interweaved contemporary sub-bass boom and clangy industrial effects. "In My Remains" is both dark and triumphant, built for an arena at the end of days.Baca artikel lengkapnya disini.
The melancholic "Castle of Glass" offers a steam-engine chug and a mountain of sound while Bennington sings about being but a small crack in the titular edifice, illustrating belonging and futility in the same stroke. On "I'll Be Gone," his metallic vocals come from a character who's either forced or chooses to leave home before the sun comes up. Amidst the lo-bit glitch and seismic stomp comes an unlikely cameo: strings courtesy of Arcade Fire arranger Owen Pallett.
"He's incredible," says Bennington, leaning back against the wall of the studio. "You send him notes and he's immediately like, 'I just sent you the track. Like, five minutes ago. It's done.' "
Kira-kira bakal seperti apa album baru nanti? Kita tunggu saja.
