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.

After being forced to download the song illegally thanks to this bullcrap with the UK, (any chance of some apology or even an explanation there?) I agree that this song is one that grows on you.
I too love the old Linkin Park, and was a little disappointed that you'd completely changed your sound AGAIN, and I can't blame some fans for not liking this, (childish all caps flamers aside,) I mean, it's almost like listening to a totally different band.
But after listening to the song a few more times, l think this song is brilliant in its own right. This is just one song from the album too, so I have hope for things to come. Hoping there's some heavier stuff to come.

Highly recommend downloading this song and listening to it properly too. Its MUCH better than that crappy MOH trailer.

It's a song, that grows on you.
I really disliked it at first, but it's getting more awesome everytime i hear it.
Now it's my favorit song by far.
