Heavy is the first single by Linkin Park from their upcoming album One More Light. It was released February 16th.
It’s a rather slow and very emotional song about mental health problems. The single features, along with Chester Bennington, another artist, young experimental-pop songwriter Kiiara.
I have to say that the song won’t become one of my favourite Linkin Park songs, but I do like it. It’s a song I don’t listen to all the time because its second half is a lot better than the first, which means that I mostly don’t click on it because of the beginning. And because lyrics like
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy
tend to make it sound kind of cheesy at times. What gets me is the music behind the lyrics and, as always, Chester’s voice.
I hope you enjoyed this brief recommendation! Tomorrow I’ll present you my album of the month, so stay tuned!
