Linkin Park also officially announced their new album is called One More Light and will be released on May 19th.

Featuring Illinois singer Kiiara, the ballad has little of the guitar grunt the band is known for as front man Chester Bennington emotes lines like: "I drive myself insane / Because I can't escape the gravity". The track features Kiiara and is more subdued than their earlier work.

You can also hear the band performing the track online later today.

Fans quickly took to Twitter complaining about the band's new sound, comparing Heavy to a Taylor Swift ballad.

From the sounds of comments co-frontman / rapper / guitarist Mike Shinoda has made in recent interviews, Heavy seems to set the tone for the latest Linkin Park album. "This isn't like a polka album with one song that sounds like this". We do know that there will be a performance of the new single "Heavy" and that more surprises are promised. "This is how the album sounds". "A lot of this stuff is, we're just kind of experimenting a lot with all the different directions the band can go".

Linkin Park will release their seventh studio album One More Light on May 19.
