Chester Bennington talks 'Burn it Down' with MTV
MTV News just published an article including a video where Chester talks about the album and specifically 'Burn it Down'. He talks about why the band chose it as their first single and how this record is taking shape.
All of our songs take these really big creative turns and twists throughout the process, so sometimes songs will start out as a melody or some musical chord progressions. ... Other times, they'll start out as beats, and the next thing you know they kind of evolve over the course of the making of the album," he said. "But what's interesting about this track is the really high energy and the really strong electronic melodies and hooks kind of set this song apart, which is why we chose it as our first single.
