Linkin Park's 4th single is "Iridescent"

Linkin Park has officially announced their next single from A Thousand Suns after many speculations and rumors. The fourth single will be "Iridescent" and it's one of my favorite songs from A Thousand Suns.

Another rumor started when a splash page, at, showed a moon and when you clicked it "Iridescent" started to play, and a picture came up showing something that looked like a Transformers logo. Given that Linkin Park has had songs on the last two Transformers movies, this suggests that they would be on the upcoming movie as well.

And the day after the official news came that "Iridescent" will be a single for upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie. Mike posted on his blog that they're shooting a music video directed by Joe Hahn. However, they will use a shortened version of the song that will fit the movie better. I've listened to the remix but I like the original version better.

Read what Mike had to say about this below.

"A few months ago, I got on the phone with Michael Bay, who wanted to discuss the possibility of our band continuing our run with songs paired with the Transformers films. We (he, his team, and our band) all have enjoyed working together on the past two, and he wanted to discuss the ideas we might have for Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon. In particular, one song came up immediately. Ever since we started playing Iridescent live, the song has been a fan favorite at the show.

For the film, there’s a new, slightly shorter version of the song, which is floating around the internet now. We’ll be shooting a video for the song tomorrow, directed by Joe Hahn."
