Guilty All the Same is the debut single from Linkin Park's sixth studio album "The Hunting Party" and is the third track on the album. The song first premiered on March 6th, 2014 via the music tagging app Shazam, which allowed users to record any Linkin Park song via their device and in return receive a link to listen to the new single. The song was subsequently given an official lyric video and was released as a single by Warner Bros. Records on March 7th, 2014.
Guilty All the Same is the first song from any of the band's studio albums to have a credited feature in the track's release in the form of American rapper, Rakim. Clocking in at 5:55 minutes in length, Guilty All the Same is Linkin Park's longest single to ever be released. A radio edit exists that shortens the track to 3:52 and cuts Rakim's rapping verse from the song. Guilty All the Same's music video is a collaboration with Microsoft's Project Spark. A gaming application that allowed users to edit and remix the video themselves.
