Linkin Park have released the first single from their forthcoming album One More Light, and to call it a departure would be a brutal understatement.

Basically, the song sounds like a blend between Sia, Rihanna, and… let’s say Tatu – certainly not what fans of the band will expect, which makes for an interesting wait for the album – due on May 17

Guest vocalist Kiiara is responsible for the bulk of the lead singing; she had a top 20 in 2015 with ‘Gold’, which sold two million copies in the U.S.

It’ll be interesting to see what fans make of this song. Have a listen to the studio version below, as well as a live version posted on Facebook.
