Linkin Park - New Divide Linkin Park yesterday premiered on LinkinPark.com their new single & theme song for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - New Divide. You can listen to the track on linkinpark.com

LP The track was leaked a few minutes before release & in no time hit the warez scene.
When I first listened to it, I was quite disappointed. A few plays later, I liked & if I listen to it a few more times, I'll totally love it (just like I did with Minutes to Midnight). :)

I remembered black skies / the lightning all around me
I remembered each flash / as time began to blur
Like a startling sign / that fate had finally found me
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason / to fill this hole / connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide

There was nothing in sight / but memories left abandoned
There was nowhere to hide / the ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in / between where we were standing
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Across this new divide

In every loss / in every lie
In every truth that you'd deny
And each regret / and each goodbye
was a mistake to great to hide
And your voice was all I heard
That I get what I deserve

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason / to fill this hole / connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide

Rob's drum, heavy guitar riffs from Brad - it's far from the likes of Meteora & Minutes to Midnight. But add Chester's powerful vocals & it's back to good old Linkin Park. :D 

New Divide It's certain that New Divide will not be as great as What I've Done, which was meant to bridge the old & new Linkin Park styles. However we tend to forget that this is not just any single, but a movie's theme song (& not any movie!).
As a movie soundtrack, I've no doubt New Divide & its variations will be truly awesome! ;)

Take a look at these Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen TV spots. New Divide fits in perfectly.

I really love this one! :D
IMO, it's more like a Dead by Sunrise record than a LP one. Everything is focused on Chester except the Intro & Outro. Not surprising, since the DBS record is coming later this year. :)

Awesome Music.

I found the instrumental New Divide music which is part of the OST.
