One More Light is the upcoming seventh studio album by American rock band Linkin Park. It is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017 through Warner Bros. Records, following the 2014 album The Hunting Party. It is the first Linkin Park album to feature a title track.
When Linkin Park were working on "Guilty All the Same" – the lead single off their sixth full-length, The Hunting Party, due out June 17th – they hit a wall. They had written the song's bridge to accommodate a rap, but the group's multi-instrumentalist and rapper Mike Shinoda felt his contribution would be "expected" by fans – so they turned to one of their heroes for inspiration, literally.
