Linkin Park are streaming a lyric video for “Battle Symphony”, a track from their forthcoming album, “One More Light.”
The tune follows “Heavy” as the second single issued in advance of the May 19 release of the group’s seventh album, which sounds more in a pop vein than previous efforts.
“The band, with every album, every song we're trying to challenge ourselves,” Mike Shinoda tells Billboard. “We like to try new things. We want to explore new territory with the sounds and the songwriting. We've always been about mixing styles; I mean, Hybrid Theory was the name of our band before we changed it to Linkin Park.
“Linkin Park fans know that with every album you never know what you're going to get, and the style can change dramatically and different elements, different genres that we listen to might sit more in the forefront than others.”
Linkin Park will hit the road to launch “One More Light” with shows beginning May 6 at Maximus Festival Argentina in Buenos Aires; other South American dates follow the same month before the band head to Europe for appearances in June.
