Linkin Park Offer Sneak Peak at ‘Iridescent’ Video
Linkin Park are set to premiere the video for their new single, ‘Iridescent,’ on Thursday (June 2), but the band is offering fans a sneak peak with a 30-second clip. The song appears on the soundtrack to the upcoming film ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon.’
The video, which was directed by Linkin Park turntablist Joe Hahn, is a conceptual piece that combines surreal images with outer-space backdrops. “As we’ve gone on, the videos have gotten more abstract,” LP singer/MC Shinoda recently told MTV when discussing the video. “I’ve been encouraging it with Joe, because … The stuff that goes on in his head is really interesting and really fun, and I think it probably comes from the fact he grew up reading a lot of comics, watching anime, those things.”
‘Iridescent’ is the fourth single off Linkin Park’s 2010 album, ‘A Thousand Suns.’ As mentioned above, it’s also included on the ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ soundtrack, which drops June 14. The movie, meanwhile, hits theaters on June 29.
