The rock band collaborates with the electro maestro on new single, A Light That Never Comes.
Linkin Park and Steve Aoki have officially released their collaborative track, A Light That Never Comes, via a brand new free 3D Facebook game called LP Recharged.
The song was first unveiled during Aoki’s performance at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan last month, during which Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda made a surprise appearance.
However, A Light That Never Comes has not been released since.
From today, fans can unlock the song by playing LP Recharge (once unlock it will also be available on Xbox Music for 14 days). The game is a product of the imaginations of Linkin Park and gaming giant Kuuluu Interactive Entertainment AG. It is a free-to-play strategy game featuring band-designed characters and missions; Shinoda himself had a hand in the game’s design.
“I think this song and release show where we’re at right now,” said Shinoda in a press statement. “Making the song with Steve, premiering it through the LP Recharge Facebook game, and debuting it via Microsoft’s Xbox Music – I think it’s all indicative of our band’s commitment to experimentation and pushing boundaries.”
A Light That Never Comes is the first single to come from Linkin Park’s Recharged, which features new interpretations of songs from the previous album, Living Things. Recharged will be released on Oct 29 (Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Music).
A limited edition version of the album will feature an interactive 3D sculpture on the artwork on Living Things and and other exclusives based.
