Listen to new Linkin Park track Heavy

Linkin Park release Spotify stream of their brand new track Heavy

Linkin Park have released a stream of their brand new track Heavy.

It’s the first material the band have released from the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2014’s The Hunting Party. Listen to it below.

Heavy features guest vocals from Kiara Saulters aka Kiiara, who has previously spoken about her love for Chester Bennington and co.

Earlier this week, the band revealed the lyrics to the track – which can also be found below.

Speaking about the new material, frontman Bennington said: “There are songs that don’t specifically talk about situations – they talk about a frame of thinking.

“This is shit that’s gone on inside my head, or this is something I’m dealing with. To me it tells a story but it’s also revealing as well in a different way – and that feels honest to me.

“People ask me, ‘You guys are in the studio, right? What’s it like?’ I’m like, ‘Well, we’re just focused on writing really great songs that mean something to people.

“We’re trying to connect with people. We’re trying to make a record that has fucking stellar songs that people want to listen to all the time.”

Linkin Park have several shows scheduled for later this year across South America and Europe.

Linkin Park Heavy lyrics

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything's about me
Yeah I drive myself crazy
Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I'm holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go, I'd be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy

You say that I'm paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

I'm holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go, I'd be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy

I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me

I'm holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go, I'd be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy
