Famed EDM artist Steve Aoki has released a new song to pay tribute to the late Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington.
Aoki debuted Friday ‘Darker Than The Light That Never Bleeds (Chester Forever Steve Aoki Remix). He made the announcement Friday via his official Instagram account. Audiences can hear the song online now here through a number of sources. A short 30-second preview clip of the song is streaming at the link, too.
The song is a mashup of two songs that Aoki composed with Linkin Park—‘Darker Than Blood’ and ‘A Light That Never Comes.’ Net proceeds of the song’s sale will benefit Music for Relief’s One More Light fund in Bennington’s name.
Aoki praised Bennington in a recent interview, calling him a friend as he expressed his sadness over Bennington’s passing.
“Chester Bennington was my favorite singer of all time,” Aoki said. “I feel so incredibly honored to not only have worked with him on these songs, but am so deeply touched to have gotten to know him as a friend. I’m still shattered by this tragic loss. It’s hard to realize that he is not coming back. Chester was such an invaluable human being that bled out the pain and passion through Linkin Park, touching so many people’s lives. He helped so many people that have felt these similar feelings around the world scream out and feel like they are not alone. Life can be incredibly trying and tough. Nothing can bring more consolation than knowing that there are others going through this same pain. Chester was such a beautiful human being. I will never forget our conversations and moments shared together in the studio, on the stage and in life. We now have Chester in our hearts and minds forever. Keep his inspiration and passion alive and play Linkin Park f***ing loud. Scream the lyrics f***ing loud. Live in these moments f***ing loud. I miss you dear friend. You are in our hearts and minds forever. Chester forever.”
