Linkin Park Reveal ‘The Hunting Party’ Track List
Details about Linkin Park's upcoming album 'The Hunting Party' have been trickling out over the past several weeks. Now we have the complete track listing with guest musicians for the disc that's set to be released June 17.
At a five-song album listening party Loudwire attended in New York, we learned that Page Hamilton from Helmet and Daron Malakian from System of a Down were part of the album, and you can check out rapper Rakim's guest spot on the single 'Guilty All the Same.' We now know that Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello lends his talents to the song 'Drawbar.'
In a new interview with New Zealand's 3 News, vocalist Chester Bennington talks about using outside musicians on the album: "We've collaborated with people for the first time, which was inspiring. We worked with Page Hamilton from Helmet, we worked with Rakim, we worked with Daron from System [of a Down]. We produced it ourselves, so Mike [Shinoda] and Brad [Delson] produced this record. We really felt like if we need to be inspired and move in another direction."
"I think when we got Page in, Mike had written this chorus and sang it, and his voice had this tone, and it was unlike anything I'd heard from him before," Bennington continues. "And I was like, 'Dude this is crazy, this sounds like a Helmet song! It's cool!' And we were like, 'Dude, why don't we see if we can get like Page in here?' You know? And if that's why the song says it's feeling like it should be, then why don't we just go straight to the source."
