ABC/Randy HolmesLinkin Park has premiered the video for “Good Goodbye,” a track from the band’s forthcoming new album One More Light.
The clip, streaming now on YouTube, finds frontman Chester Bennington competing in a life-or-death slam dunk contest, judged by none other than NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. While Bennington dunks all over his foes, Mike Shinoda, Pusha T and Stormzy take the court to rap their verses.
Shinoda previously explained that “Good Goodbye” was inspired by his love of basketball.
“When I was writing this song, I wanted to capture that moment at the game when someone fouls out, and the cheerleaders sing and kick out the ejected player,” he said.
One More Light, which also includes the singles “Heavy” and “Battle Symphony,” will be released May 19. Linkin Park will be touring North America in support of the album starting July 27 in Boston. The tour will include two stadium stops with Blink-182, taking place July 28 at Citi Field in Flushing, New York and July 30 at Hershey Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
