Linkin Park's 20th anniversary celebration of their groundbreaking 2000 debut album "Hybrid Theory" continues with the release of two special covers of iconic singles from the album: "One Step Closer" covered by Los Angeles-based alt-rocker grandson, and "In The End" covered by Inglewood's FEVER 333. Both tracks have been surprise-released exclusively on Spotify for fans to stream! grandson and FEVER 333 have both struck up friendships with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda in recent years. Linkin Park fans will of course know grandson from his appearance on Shinoda's 2018 full-length album "Post Traumatic", where he lent his talents to the rager "Running From My Shadow". His take on "One Step Closer" combines samples from the original song with his own signature blend of alternative rock, hip-hop and glitchy electronica, in an arrangement that suddenly stops at the end of the climactic bridge. grandson has said this about getting the opportunity to reinterpret "One Step Closer": FEVER 333's frontman Jason Aalon Butler, meanwhile, has made appearances via phone on Mike Shinoda's Twitch streams teasing a secret collaboration, which, in hindsight, may well have been this release. FEVER's cover of "In The End" sees them sticking quite closely to the original song in terms of instrumentation, contrasted with Jason's distinctive vocal flair. He proves his versatility as a singer by tackling both Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington's parts throughout the whole arrangement. Like grandson, he too remarked candidly on getting to cover an iconic song that means a lot to him: grandson and Jason Aalon Butler have also just appeared on Mike Shinoda's Twitch livestream to discuss the collaboration, and you can check out that VOD here.
