Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has revealed that at least one unreleased song featuring the late Chester Bennington from the One More Light-era exists.
Sharing the news during a Twitch Stream, Shinoda spoke about an unreleased song called “Friendly Fire” that was supposed to be a part of Linkin Park’s 2017 album, One More Light.
“Friendly Fire” was co-written by Jon Green (James Bay, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Linkin Park) and according to Shinoda, “you literally are going to have to wait years to hear that song.”
“There was a song — a ‘One More Light’ song that… we mixed more [songs] than [are present on] the finished album and we mixed a couple other songs just to see if one of them would make the cut or whatever — if we could use it for a b-side and it was ‘Friendly Fire‘.”
Check out a clip of Shinoda’s Twitch stream below.
