Linkin Park drops new song 'Heavy' from new album 'One More Light'

American rock band Linkin Park has returned with the announcement of their new album "One More Light" and with that comes a new single "Heavy".

The Los Angeles-based band's new song is called Heavy - but fans say it's anything but. Linkin Park are well known for mixing their sound up, but this one could test even the most ardent of Linkin Park fans.

"One of the reasons we picked "Heavy" as the first single is because it's kind of core to the sound of the album", Mike Shinoda told KROQ during his visit. The band also talked about the writing and recording process of One More Light set to release on May 19. The band just released the first single from their new album, and it's rather chill.

The album artwork for "One More Light" has also been revealed, with the band tweeting the final cover art earlier this week. "This is how the album sounds".

This evening they've hosted a Facebook Live event, playing the track live - watch the footage below. "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". You can also stream and download "Heavy" at this location and there are also bundle pre-order packages for the album available here.
