Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda is one of the amazing artists that will appear on Deftones' "Black Stallion", an upcoming collection of remixes to celebrate their seminal 2000 album "White Pony". Today, Deftones unveil Shinoda's contribution, a reworking of the fan-favourite "Passenger". This song, of course, features the vocal talents of A Perfect Circle's Maynard James Keenan, who duets throughout the track with Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno. Shinoda's remix is now available to check out on various platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. Deftones and Linkin Park share a lengthy history as friends and tourmates, not to mention as mutual fans, but the two camps have collaborated on music releases only sparsely throughout the years. Most recently, Chino Moreno appeared on Mike Shinoda's 2018 album "Post Traumatic", lending his signature vocals to "Lift Off". Linkin Park's spectacular 20th anniversary edition of "Hybrid Theory", released earlier this year, also includes live footage of the band covering "My Own Summer (Shove It)", a song from Deftones' 1998 album "Around The Fur". Shinoda's take on "Passenger" largely leaves the vocals alone, but discards nearly all the instrumentation - in place of the jagged guitars at the foundation of the original song is an ambient electronica palette. The track opens with soft arpeggios and ominous whispers but this atmosphere is suddenly punctured with thick bass stabs for the chorus, matching the contrast in the singing. Shinoda also laces some dusty piano throughout the arrangement, particularly in the outro, and makes liberal use of vinyl crackle. The 20th anniversary edition of "White Pony", which will include the "Black Stallion" remix album, will be released on December 11 and can be pre-ordered here. Other artists who have contributed remixes for the collection include Clams Casino, Purity Ring, Phantogram, DJ Shadow, and The Cure's Robert Smith. In the meantime, a video for Mike Shinoda's "Passenger" remix, directed by Aaron Hymes, is due to premiere here at 2:12 AM EDT / 9:12 PM PDT on Saturday, November 14, as part of the Adult Swim Festival 2020 lineup.
