Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda responds to newly released Chester Bennington song
Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda has tweeted his reaction to hearing “Cross Off,” the solo song from Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton that features a vocal performance from late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington.
Shinoda tweeted, “I remember when Chester played this song for me in his car, almost finished. He was really happy with it. Good stuff, Mark.” Bennington recorded his vocals for the song in April 2017, just three months before taking his own life at his California home.
Morton tweeted about the song, “‘Cross Off’ was a very free flowing and natural process. Everyone that worked on it put a lot of energy and emotion into it. I feel like you can really hear that in the track, and absolutely in Chester’s performance.”
“Cross Off’ can be found on Morton’s full-length solo effort, Anesthetic, which is due out on March 1st. Other guests on the LP include singer Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, Alter Bridge‘s Myles Kennedy, Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga, Korn drummer Ray Luzier, Alice In Chains bassist Mike Inez and others.
