Remember the meeting between Martin Garrix and Mike Shinoda in November 2015? While Mike later said that the meeting was just to "throw some ideas around", a track has surfaced from the session.
 
Martin Garrix recently premiered a new song with both Mike and Chester featured on it at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, FL. Check it out below. While we originally thought the song was just featuring Mike, we have updated the thread to mention Chester as well since he is harmonizing with Mike. For now, we're calling the song "Waiting For Tomorrow" due to the lyrics.

Debuting songs live is nothing new for EDM artists, as Steve Aoki's collaborations with Linkin Park (A Light That Never Comes and Darker Than Blood) were both played live before their release.

We don't have any information on a possible release of this song; we will keep you informed. Martin has a new album coming out soon, but the tracklisting hasn't been released yet.

 

EDIT: Martin Garrix has uploaded a better quality version of the song. (10:15).
 

 

DOWNLOAD: Live audio (.zip; 2:47 length)

 

LYRICS:
 

Verse:
Remember we were staring up to those peaks on the horizon
I promised I would never stop it
In your name I would climb them
There's nothing I have wanted more
The only one I've been waiting for
So hold your breath and close your eyes
The end is unknown but still we rise
 
Chorus:
Counting down, to the light
Through the night, just waiting for tomorrow
Almost there, almost time
All my life
Just waiting
It's only one more day, it's only one more day
It's only one more day, it's only one more day
Waiting for tomorrow
 
Waiting for tomorrow
 
Counting down, to the light
Through the night, just waiting for tomorrow
Almost there, almost time
All my life
Just waiting for tomorrow
Counting down, to the light
Through the night, just waiting for tomorrow
Almost there, almost time
All my life
Just waiting for tomorrow
 

Thoughts?

Actually didn't sound too bad, I'm not a fan of the EDM style, but I like this more than Darker Than Blood.

I don't get why everyone gets so mad that they pop up on EDM tracks every once and a while. It's obviously something they enjoy and while I loved Recharged and would think an EDM album from them would be pretty good, I'd rather have them guest on some people's tracks instead.



You're all against me because I'm black.

Batty, please.

It's cool, Mike's singing has definitely improved lately but some of his parts before the drop don't sound like he should be singing there - maybe someone with a higher register.

This actually sounds sick. I hope a studio version comes out soon.

This song is a lot better than DTB imo, but then again, I don't really like Steve Aoki's music. ALTNC was cool, you could really hear LP's influence in that song. 

 

This song is mostly Martin Garrix' sound, which I personally really like. He is a great producer and DJ. Mike did a great job on the vocals, especially in the intro, but I have to agree with ATylerInTheSand, the parts before the drop don't quite fit Mike's voice tbh.

 

Great song in my opinion, and also nice to see LP/Mike working with other artists in different genres!

 

EDIT: Full live set (HD)

Chester, or someone with a similar range, probably should have sung those "It's only one more day" lines. It needs an extra punch that Mike just didn't deliver on there. Otherwise, this sounds really good. Like it more than either of the Aoki tracks.

She said, "Are you okay?" / And I'm staring into space
It's making her nervous cause one thing is certain / I don't have my head on straight
We're trying to get through each week / On two or three hours of sleep
I say to be patient / That we're going to make it
I have to admit that I'm struggling

Chester is clearly singing along with Mike on the chorus you guys...

If Mike & Chester on the chorus, that means this song will be "feat. LINKIN PARK" instead of "feat. Mike Shinoda". Maybe?

Heck, even BJA and Serj Tankian worked with Avicii before; I really don't think this should be a concern for the LP fanbase (any more).

 

Unless you're not being sarcastic then I apologize lolol

I think I can hear Chester in the chorus.
One thing I don't like is that you can clearly hear auto tune.

This sounds good. I hope we hear it soon enough, since DJs have the habit to record something add it to their set and release it like 6 or more months later

Really digging this song. A lot more fun sounding and feels like more thought went into it than any of the Aoki songs.
