Linkin Park Preview New Album ‘One More Light’ With Anthemic Song ‘Heavy’

Alt-rock outfit teams with rising singer Kiiara for first track off upcoming LP


Linkin Park unveiled a rousing new single, “Heavy,” from their new album, One More Light, out May 19th via Warner Bros.

The new track features guest vocals from rising singer Kiiara, who trades verses with Chester Bennington over a sparse but nimble pop groove of swirling synths and rapt percussion. Throughout “Heavy,” the beat repeatedly drops out, but each time rebuilds towards Bennington and Kiiara’s final powerhouse chorus, packed with plenty of anthemic angst.

Linkin Park and Kiiara debuted “Heavy” with a stripped-down performance on Facebook Live. During the stream, the band also performed “Crawling” and “Burn It Down” and discussed writing and recording One More Light.

One More Light marks Linkin Park’s seventh studio LP and first since 2014’s The Hunting Party. The LP is available to pre-order on CD And vinyl via the band’s website.

Linkin Park have been working on One More Light for several years now, offering Rolling Stone an update on their progress in January 2016. “I’ve been on a tear in the studio right now with the band,” Mike Shinoda said at the time. “We’ve been making so much new material. … A lot of this stuff is, we’re just kind of experimenting a lot with all the different directions the band can go.”
