Linkin Park reveal new song 'Guilty All The Same' featuring Rakim – listen

US band team up with rapper on first taste of new album

Linkin Park have revealed 'Guilty All The Time', the first song from their new album. See above to hear the song now.

The track features US rapper Rakim and is the first taste of the band's upcoming studio effort. Earlier this year Linkin Park shared an update from the studio while working on the record, which will be their sixth, with band member Mike Shinoda promising fans something different to 2012 album 'Living Things'.

Speaking about guest star Rakim, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda was full of praise. "If you get into the nitty-gritty of his rhyme pattern and the topic in this song, it’s bananas what he is doing," he told KROQ. "He's on the some Steve Vai shit vocally."

Earlier this week it was revealed that Linkin Park and 30 Seconds To Mars have announced details of a joint US tour. The two bands will hit the road this summer on what they have dubbed the Carnivores Tour. They will be joined special guest act AFI.

On Tuesday (March 4), it was announced that Linkin Park and Jay-Z will reissue their 2004 album 'Collision Course' for this year's Record Store Day.

The joint album, which saw the nu-metal band's songs mashed up with Jay Z raps, will be reissued on blue vinyl for the special occasion, which this year falls on April 19. The 10th anniversary reissue will also include a DVD of the joint tour both acts embarked on following the release of the album.

Jay Z and Linkin Park are the latest artists to reveal their own Record Store Day plans with Green Day revealing last week that they plan to release a compilation of demos from the recording sessions of their last album. Meanwhile, LCD Soundsystem will release a recording of their last ever live show on vinyl.

Meanwhile, Linkin Park have also been named as one of the headline acts for Download Festival 2014, with the band set to perform their 2000 album 'Hybrid Theory' in full at the event. Joining them on the bill will be special guests Fall Out Boy. They join Friday night headliners Avenged Sevenfold and Aerosmith, who will close the Donington festival.
