The second Linkin Park's single off their upcoming sixth album "The Hunting Party" will be aired on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show at 7:30 PM BST today (May 5).
The track, titled "Until It's Gone," will be released on May 30th. It was described as the "more mid-tempo track with softer lyrics provided by Chester Bennington, who really shows his vocal versatility." The track features "the dreamy and atmospheric sounds," which "are enough to whisk you away but Bennington brings you back down to earth as he belts out their take on a familiar chorus: 'Cause you don't know what you've got / No you don't know what you've got / You don't know what you've got / Until it's gone.'"
The single was also reviewed by Altwire's Derek Oswald. He described the song as the "brooding goth rock anthem" with "a synth line reminiscent of 2003's 'Numb'," "gorgeous choir like backing vocals, and intense orchestral backdrop." Derek also described the song as "one of the most atmospheric and diverse songs" on "The Hunting Party" so far (he reviewed the six song sampler, which also included "Keys to the Kingdom," "All for Nothing" featuring Page Hamilton of Helmet, "Wastelands," "Rebellion" featuring System of a Down's Daron Malakian and the most recent Linkin Park single "Guilty All the Same" featuring Rakim). Finally, Derek states that the track is "atmospherically similar to the band's 2010 release 'A Thousand Suns.'"
The band itself recently shared the preview of the track via their Instagram. Check out two videos below.
