Last.fm Trends: The Catalyst Sparks Chart Explosion
Linkin Park‘s latest video dropped yesterday, and it’s a gas. Featuring the band in an apocalyptic backdrop they seem to be caught in the mother of all powdered paint fights. We’re not sure what it means, but it looks pretty.
Though leaked files took a small proportion of listeners at the end of July, the track’s official release on August 2nd saw a huge rise in listeners, jumping from a few hundred to more than 20,000 almost overnight. In a few days it settled down, regularly reaching more than 4,500 plays, an number already on the rise now that the video’s out.
Linkin Park have always had a strong army of listeners, and A Thousand Suns could see scrobbles regularly reach numbers in the tens of thousands when it drops in September. Make sure your plays count by heading to Last.fm now, and discover more about how listeners have responded to the band’s back catalog with the new material on the horizon.
