Watch New Unreleased Linkin Park "Friendly Fire" from Career-Spanning Album "Papercuts"

IMG_4382
Linkin Park have unveiled their Career-Spanning Album "PAPERCUTS" with tracklisting, arriving April 12th. Assembling an essential collection of generational anthems, LINKIN PARK will present their first-ever career-spanning greatest hits album entitled "Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023)" 

It will be available at all DSPs and in various physical configurations, including CD, Cassette, and double Vinyl. For the latter, there are several limited edition color vinyl variants, a Zoetrope picture disc and black vinyl.

In addition to the classics, LINKIN PARK uncovered the never-before-released track "Friendly Fire." Recorded during the 2017 sessions for their seventh album One More Light, it features a powerhouse vocal performance from the late Chester Bennington. The video was directed and edited by long-time collaborator Mark Fiore and features never-before-seen studio and live footage.

"'Friendly Fire' was always one of our favorite songs from the One More Light sessions. Something about it wasn't quite right so as close as it got to the finish line, we chose to set it aside for later. When we started looking for an unreleased track to include on our greatest hits collection, I was blown away by the power of the song, the power of the storytelling, the power of the vocal, the sonic landscape and I actually thought that it was closer than maybe we had realized at the time. We got together to work on it and connect some of the missing pieces that for whatever reason hadn't revealed themselves during the recording of One More Light. I can't wait for people to hear it. It's such a beautiful, compelling, heartbreaking, hopeful story and it really resonates with me today." -Brad Delson

"In the making of each Linkin Park album, I want to love and believe in each individual song completely. I hope that if any one track is heard on its own in the world, it is something I can feel proud of, and something that takes root inside the listener and becomes part of the energy that connects us. Curating the tracks for Papercuts was a joy. Each song in this collection is both a singular moment on our timeline and an evolving story that is as much ours as it is yours. From our first release 'One Step Closer' to the brand-new 'Friendly Fire,' this tracklist spans all our chapters so far. Thank you for being a part of our journey. We hope you enjoy Papercuts." - Mike Shinoda

Additionally, "In The End" just achieved a Diamond Certification (10x Million) from the RIAA. It stands out as the band's most-streamed song with over 1.8 billion Spotify streams and 1.7 billion YouTube views on the music video. This marks their first Diamond Certification for a single. It notably graces the tracklisting of their 12x-platinum Diamond-Certified full-length debut, Hybrid Theory.

New HARDY "ROCKSTAR" video - All favorites are represented here!

Hardy-Rockstar
"'ROCKSTAR' is my 'REDNECKER' for rock 'n roll. I feel like it's the first rock song I've released that doesn't take itself seriously and the music video follows suit. Some of my favorite music videos from back in the day were the ones that showed humor, so here's my tip of the hat to that. Enjoy." - Hardy

Hardy (won't) QUIT Tour! Catch Hardy on tour with 2 Ohio stops! Thursday July 25th at Riverbend in Cincinnati and Thursday August 22nd at "Bash On The Bay" at Put In Bay! Watch this outstanding video!
