Hey guys,

After weeks of hearing the amazing remixes on MySpace... I'm pleased to announce the wait for the real thing is over. Our new single, "The Catalyst," is out today!

To check out the song, you can go to iTunes. If you want more, get "The Catalyst" instantly with any purchase on linkinpark.com--buy anything, get the song immediately, and get the digital version of the whole album for free (even if you buy a t-shirt or skate deck) the moment it becomes available. There are also two great CD/DVD versions of the album that contain the official documentary of the making of the album. Get all this before anyone else here.

In other exciting news: we are proud to announce that the winning version of the "Linkin Park Featuring You" contest on MySpace is NoBraiN, an English teacher from Swidnica, Poland. Overall, we were blown away by the quality of entries, and the excitement by artists and fans alike. We can't thank you enough. We intend to do some special things with many of our favorite entries in the future...but first and foremost, you can hear NoBraiN's winning track here. When I contacted him directly via Skype, he was freaking out. Check that out here.

Before I go, I there's one more note. Our very own Joe Hahn directed an exclusive trailer for the new Medal of Honor game, using music from "The Catalyst." Check it out here.

More updates to come,


Note: "The Catalyst" will be released in the UK on September 6.

That was my point, glad you guys (and all the others who think the same) support LP with their new and innovating music.

C'mon... the song is good... maybe you don't understand that, but all the great bands had to evolve... and LP do the same... all the time...

Would you guys calm down over music lol I thought it was an innovative song and something different from LP. If you really dont like it dont listen to it. Its Track 14 on the album...near the end of the record. There are 14 other songs!!!!!

Just stop the criticism, if you dont like it just stop listening to it, its the new LP style, they're doing something different to HT and Meteora, many people were asking for something new, and they got it they start complaining about it, so sucket it up and shut up and enjoy it, you shoukd be glad that they are not stuck in just one music style and that they know how to inovate, they were saying that this album was going to be brand new in music and lyrics, that they were triyng to make a new style and you should be happy for them, they also said that this was going to be a concept album so enjoy it!

Ok the song has been growing on me all day...the lyrics are easy to grasp idk why people cant...think of Oppenheimer, Bhagavad Gita, etc. maybe its b/c i wrote a paper on all of it haha....I do hope that the new album isnt all like this...i miss Mike's rapping, he has a great voice but I'd rather hear him rapping..the reason people are so attached to the past is because Mike and Chester complimented each other back then and it seems like that is starting to disapear so I hope these guys prove them wrong. Overall its a great song and everyone who isnt a fan of it is not a true LP fan so enjoy it and enjoy a Thousand Suns

I think its fcking amazing:D its different for lp but you can still tell its them... plus i really didnt wanna hear anything that ive heard before anyways im loving the variety and the end is EPIC gives me chills everytime

This is a really great song and i love it, but I hope they have other songs on their new album that have more vocals cause most of the singing in this song is over powered by the instrumental... but its only 1 song, never no wut the rest of the album will sound like.

I love how stupid people can be... lmao if you guys want HT or Meteora music build a fricken time machine cause thats the only way ur geting it... they grow up, got older, and changed GET OVER IT. plus just because something isnt completely rock doesnt mean its crap. talk about having no respect for different styles in the end its all music. Instead of questioning wut kind of music ur listening to y dont u guys focus that energy into whether u like the sound or not.

Proud fan since Meteora^_^

Btw, waiting in anticipation the pre-ordered stuff ...
Comment by Insan 4IT on August 2, 2010 at 9:37pm
Heard for the 1st time The Catalyst and it really sounds good. Wish I could "get into" the music more with better understanding of the lyrics and what its all about ie. Nuke / Apocalypse ?
