    It seems that during his performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami Martin Garrix premiered a new song, featuring Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda. Rumors of this first appeared back in November when the two were pictured in the studio together, but up until now we've had no information on what they were working on.

    It's currently unknown if any other band member was involved with the song, but the EDM banger features Shinoda's vocals very prominently. The song title is also unknown, but it is likely it will be called "Waiting For Tomorrow". A part of the song was recently uploaded to YouTube, and you can check it out there or below.

    I've taken my best stab at transcribing the lyrics, and you can check them out below aswell. If anything sounds off to you, please submit your corrections below.

    What do you think of the track? Excited to hear the studio version? Join the discussion in our forums.

    UPDATE: Martin Garrix has now uploaded his entire set from the festival on his YouTube channel. The version uploaded to his channel has slightly better audio quality. Several of our members have pointed out that the song also has vocals from Chester Bennington singing in unison with Shinoda in the pre-chorus and chorus of the new track. Check out the performance in high quality below and tell us what you think!

    While Mike's vocal performance live-wise is still not perfect, his studio performance is getting a lot more interesting which is great.

    The verse right after the drop seems to be pretty rough though. Probably just whatever they came up with in that couple of days.

    Sounds pretty good, Mike's studio vocals are getting better. Though am I the only one that hears Chester and Mike both sing when the chorus comes in?

    Pitch shifting/autotune/whatever.

    Depending on who you listen to, though, his live vocals are getting worse with time. Which is a view I don't personally subscribe to

    With each dance track he tries his hand at, Shinoda gets better (albeit with help) at making tracks that fit right into festival sets like those at Ultra. There's no Linkin Park element in this track at all.

    That's what I thought at first, but I swear I hear Chester's distinct vocals. Oh well, I might just be crazy.

    Could be either, IMO - it could be a bit of formant-shifting and different processing on Shinoda's voice ... or it could be a whole different voice.

    Well, Rakim brings his own distinct style to "Guilty All The Same". Shinoda's more of a versatile chameleon -- on this track, he delivers as a vocalist on a straight-out festival house tune without reminding me of any of his past work. He comes off as a solo vocalist here, instead of a component of Linkin Park, and it helps the track a lot.

    I'm gonna predict that, somehow, the final studio v. we hear won't be as well-liked as this clip

    It won't be "Martin Garrix Feat. Fort Minor", because looks likely it doesn't include any rap verse.

    Filip, I think it might be "Counting down to the light." Though my guess is as good as yours.

    Didn't Mike say he wants to keep the FM label open for anything he does outside of Linkin Park, not necessarily only rap music? But yeah, it would be a bit weird seeing him use it outside of rap.

    I just hope this wouldn't end up being like Avicii's un(officially)released material with BJA, Dan Reynolds and Serj Tankian
