Mike Shinoda Says New Single “Heavy” Represents The “Core Sound” Of New Linkin Park Album


Linkin Park vocalist, etc. Mike Shinoda has spoken to about the band’s newly announced album “One More Light” (out May 19th) and their newly debuted single “Heavy” (stream it here.) In regards to “Heavy“, which features a guest turn from Kiiara, he mentioned that it represents the sound of the new album itself:

“One of the reasons why we chose “Heavy” as the first single is because it is really the core sound of the album. This wasn’t a scenario where the whole album sounds one way and the single sounds different. This is how the album sounds. So we wanted to go out with a song like that, where everybody can get a sense of the direction of this body of work.”
