What happens when musicians from opposite ends of the musical spectrum unite to create a tune? A genre clashing, electro- rock masterpiece. Steve Aoki and Linkin’ Park have collaborated to make ” A Light That Never Comes.” This isn’t an ordinary collab release either…fans of both Aoki and LP have linked up to unlock the track by playing a Facebook game called “LP RECHARGE.” The game, a product of the imaginations of Linkin Park and gaming giant Kuuluu Interactive Entertainment, is a free-to-play strategy game featuring band-designed characters and missions. Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, an art school graduate with a degree in illustration, helped design the game.The song was originally unveiled as a surprise during AOKI’s performance at the Summer Sonic festival in Tokyo last month. He was joined by Linkin’ Park’s Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda. The only preview of the song were the cell phone recordings from the concert until now. Now fans have worked together to unveil the studio recording of the song.
