LINKIN PARK Unveils New Album Art, 'Heavy' Single Lyrics

LINKIN PARK has revealed the cover artwork of its seventh studio album. The image was unveiled via a digital puzzle sourced through various "ambassadors" of the band across social media.

LINKIN PARK has also announced that the first single from the upcoming disc is titled "Heavy" and it features guest vocals from Kiara Saulters, who is best known for recording stop-motion, hip-hop-inspired electro-R&B under the name Kiiara.

The "Heavy" lyrics can be found at Genius.com.

LINKIN PARK recently released new video update from the studio in which members of the band discussed their approach to the upcoming album's lyrical themes. Singer Chester Bennington said: "There are songs that don't specifically talk about situations, they talk about a frame of thinking. Like, 'This is shit that's going on inside my head,' or, 'This is something that I'm dealing with.' To me, also, it tells a story, but it's also revealing as well in another way, and that feels honest to me."

Bennington added in the new video update: "We're trying to connect with people. We're trying to make a record that has fucking stellar songs that people wanna listen to all the time."

Co-vocalist Mike Shinoda appeared on a YouTube question-and-answer session recently and told fans about the new album: "I can't tell you what it sounds like. I can tell you you're going to be surprised. You gotta expect the unexpected. Don't expect what you've heard before."

No release date has been confirmed yet for the new disc, which will follow up 2014's "The Hunting Party".
