In early October, Linkin Park did a mentoring session with Zayed Hassan, the grand prize winner of the Stagelight Monthly Music Contest, at Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles.[1][2][3] During the sessions, Rob Bourdon recorded drums for the song "Sailing Through The Clouds".

About the track, Zayed said:

"I started working on "Sailing through the clouds" back in 1999-2000. I only knew how to play guitar back then. Since I had no professional setup back then, so I used to input the midi notes from my guitar to my music arranging software manually- one by one. However over the time the tune evolved, harmony of the song took better shapes and elements of the song kept changing. Later when I started to collaborate with artists around the world, I asked many of my musician friends to contribute for this song. My sole purpose was to make a track, that speaks about different cultures and ethnicity, through the language of music!

The tracks "Sailing through the clouds" and "A Text From The Parallel World" are two ethnic fusion experimentals. I tried to stitch the musical cultures which fascinate me most!"[4]

"Sailing Through The Clouds" was released on August 18, 2016 to digital stores. Besides drums from Rob, the track also features vocals by Nigerian singer Victor Agbo and a musical contribution by Bill Burley.
