Linkin Park unveil new direction with Heavy

The brand new Linkin Park track is probably not what you’re expecting.

Linkin Park have unveiled their new track Heavy, alongside release details for their seventh studio album One More Light.

The full-length will be available from the 19 May 2017, and judging by Heavy, is taking the band in a slightly different direction. Continuing their steady move away from their heavier roots, it demonstrates an obvious nod to R&B – not least due to guest vocalist Kiiara.

Celebrated as the biggest band on Facebook, Linkin Park will be hosting a live performance and Q&A on the social platform at 8PM GMT this evening (16 February 2017). You can access that here.

There’s no confirmed UK live dates just yet, but with a new album on the way it probably won’t be long until they reach these shores once again.

In the past, Linkin Park have enjoyed headline slots at Download Festival and Reading and Leeds, as well as a wealth of huge UK shows.
