Two days before American rockers Linkin Park release their fith studio album Living Things, they have offered Stuff readers the chance to listen to it here first.
The chart-topping band (comprising of drummer Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, MC/vocalist Mike Shinoda, DJ Joseph Hahn, bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrell and singer Chester Bennington) said while working on the upcoming album they've tried to think outside of the box.
"It's just really different [from anything we've done before]," Mike Shinoda told MTV News.
"I feel like we made a serious effort to try and touch all of the bases of all of the different things that we've done, and bring them together in each song.
"Not just one album, but each song. And then maybe sprinkle in some stuff that we've never done before, too."
Their new song Powerless also features in the newly released trailer to the movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
Living Things is co-produced by Rick Rubin (Adele, Metallica) and Linkin Park vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Shinoda, who co-produced Linkin Park's last two albums.
