Linkin Park Debut "Transformers" Video for "New Divide"

June 12, 2009 2:11 PM ET

Linkin Park debuted the new video for their song "New Divide," the theme for the upcoming summer blockbuster Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, on MySpace today. Like the film itself, the video grabs every digital trick in the book and gives fans a look at some footage from the hotly anticipated film. The video even uses that special effect Kanye West borrowed from Chairlift, who Rock Daily saw at Bonnaroo last night. Linkin Park will also reportedly help score the film.

The Transformers soundtrack hits stores June 23rd and features Green Day, Taking Back Sunday, Nickelback and many more. But the clear highlight is Cheap Trick's version of the "Transformers Theme" — quite a feat considering the song has the lyrics "Transformers, more than meets the eye/Transformers, robots in disguise." Get a listen over at YouTube.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
