Linkin Park released a new single from their upcoming album on the day Chester Bennington was found dead. Just minutes after the Linkin Park frontman’s body was discovered, the band dropped their third track from the album – One More Light. To think that we are not going to see this man perform live, to realise that we are not going to see him belt out the lyrics from our favourite numbers is heartbreaking and the new song only reminds fans of everything that they are going to miss. Titled “Talking To Myself”, the song is in itself about substance abuse, and the lyrics, especially on the hindsight, is eerie. Only, unlike a one-on-one conversation, he spoke to millions. The video features concert footage and the band’s interaction with fans. It reminds us of all the collaborations that Chester will not be a part of, all the songs that he wouldn’t be singing, and the gaping hole that Chester Bennington has left behind. He has been the voice of angst and conflict through many of his songs, and the latest one is another addition. Sample the lyrics, “Tell me what I’ve gotta do / There’s no getting through to you / lights are on, but nobody’s home / You say I can’t understand / but you’re not giving me a chance / when you leave me, where do you go.” As you hear these words reverberate in your head, it does feel like this track is a mirror to what happened. The huge fan following that Chester has been enjoying was because most of us understood what he was singing, and there was a connection born out of empathy. Related News
