As you know, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton has released his new solo collaboration with late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington yesterday. You can listen to the song called “Cross Off” below.
According to recent reports, Chester and Mark recorded the track in the spring of 2017, just a few months before the Linkin Park singer’s tragic death.
Today, Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda has shared a new statement on Twitter and revealed a little story about the song. He wrote:
“I remember when Chester played this song for me in his car, almost finished. He was really happy with it. Good stuff, Mark. ❤️🙏🏽”
Mark Morton said:
“Cross Off was a very free flowing and natural process. Everyone that worked on it put a lot of energy and emotion into it. I feel like you can really hear that in the track, and absolutely in Chester’s performance.”
