Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda opens the proceedings on the booming, EDM-flavored track with a verse of his own before Chester Bennington swoops in on the chorus.
“Good bye, good riddance/ A period is after every sentence/ Did my time with my cell mate/ Maxed out so now we finished,” Pusha T rhymes on his bars. Stormzy closes “Good Goodbye” out with a strong verse where he raps, “Goodbye to the stereotypes/ You can’t tell my kings we can’t/ Mandem we’re linking tings in parks/ Now I got a tune with Linkin Park.”
Linkin Park will release One More Light, the band’s first album since 2014’s The Hunting Party, on May 19th. Fans who preorder the LP now receive an instant download of “Good Goodbye.” The group also recently dropped the video for the album’s first single “Heavy.”
