Ok, ok I know that the video is now been out a month ... so I guess it's not "new". But as SongAlerts wasn't live then and the Album comes out next week, close enough.
Linkin Park has carved out a niche for themselves - Not quite Alt, not quite Rap, it could almost be Prog rock if that term wasn't derogatory. Anyway you cut it, it does work.
For me it's the distinctive vocal ... As soon as you hear it takes you back a few years when they first came on the scene. Maybe not as good as their earlier hits but still worth a spin or 2!
