As a hardcore high school Linkin Park fan finding her passion in electronic music, I could not be more excited for this collaboration! Steve Aoki and Linkin Park have teamed up to bring us a beautiful balance of rock and electro in their upcoming track “A Light That Never Comes.” Neither of them has dabbled too much in the other’s genre of music and as Aoki explains to Billboard, “I always add a lot. Mike’s the one to say, let’s take some layers out to make this work.” Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park explains why he loves collaborating and how he’s not trying to change anything about Steve, but work together and learn during the process, “Collaboration to me is so much more interesting, because I realized there are guys out there who are thrilled to devote 24 hours on a weird thing I would never be able to focus on. I’m not going to try to imitate or recreate that. I brought that mentality to this project. Let’s let Steve be Steve, and preserve as much of that as possible.” This project started almost a year ago and the guys tested it just a couple of weeks ago at the Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo, Japan. It must have gone well because the official release date is now set for September 12! What is also unique about this is that they won’t be releasing it to the public just like that. Fans will have to work together through a Facebook game called LP Recharge in order to unlock the track. Check out the trailer below and get pumped for this one-of-a-kind collab.
