Listen to Dim Mak boss Steve Aoki and Linkin Park's new song 'Waiting For A Light That Never Comes.'
Steve Aoki and Linkin Park recently debuted their new collaborative single, 'A Light That Never Comes.' The EDM/Rock crossover song -- watch the lyric video above -- was initially accessible by playing the "LP Recharge" 3D Facebook game.
'A Light That Never Comes' will appear on Linkin Park's upcoming album, 'Recharged,' out October 29. It consists of remixes of songs from Linkin Park's last album, 'Living Things,' by Datsik, Schoolboy, Nick Catchdubs, KillSonik, Paul Van Dyk and more. Rappers Pusha T and Bun B pop up on two tracks ('I'll Be Gone' and 'Road Untraveled,' respectively). And mega-producer Rick Rubin has made a "Reboot" of 'A Light That Never Comes.'
Linkin Park has a history of collaborations. Most notably, the 'Collision Course' EP they did with Jay Z. The hit song from that album, 'Numb/Encore,' earned them a Grammy in 2006 for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
In an interview with KROQ, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda had this to say about why the band decided to collaborate with an artist from the EDM world:
“I think that EDM is at a place where it can either repeat itself, stay kind of stagnant and eventually get boring, or people can do what Steve [Aoki] is doing, what Avicii is doing, what a lot of these other guys are doing and start experimenting and taking chances."
