Linkin Park announced to release the latest track ‘Picturebook’ of their 20-year-old album ‘Hybrid Theory’.
Fans of the ‘In The End’ hitmaker has heard of this unreleased song for many years but haven’t heard how it sounds like. They are going to release the track on their 20th Anniversary, October 24.
As one of the co-founders, Mike Shinoda has confirmed the release of the song. During a press conference, he stated: “Fans have known about ‘Pictureboard’ for about 19 or 20 years. They’ve known of the existence of it, but didn’t know at all what it sounded like.”
This song is so special to many of the fans, but Mike has no idea why? Guitarist Brad Delson also has his personal experience with this song, it’s the first he heard from Chester. “Unless my memory is super wrong, which is very possible, but not likely … I remember getting that and saying, ‘Hey, what do you think of this guy? He just sent us this recording.’ I wasn’t like crying with joy, but almost. I was like, ‘Wow, I don’t even know what that I,” he said about the past.
He added: “He’s so tiny and vulnerable on the verse and you can hear all those timbres and harmonics and then all the overtones on the heavy part. To me, it just blew my hat off my head. And then we were like, ‘We gotta meet this guy.”
Linkin Park announced to release more tracks on the featured ‘Hybrid Theory’ album. They are to release 12 tracks including the 1999 demo for ‘She Couldn’t’. The album will release on October 9.
