So Far Away
|"So Far Away"|
|Song by Linkin Park from the album LP Underground 12|
|Released||November 16, 2012|
|Label||Machine Shop Records|
"So Far Away" is a demo recorded when Linkin Park was still called Hybrid Theory. It is notable for being the only known pre-Minutes To Midnight song where Mike Shinoda sings (instead of rapping) lead vocals for the entire song.
It was released in November 2012 on the LP Underground 12 CD. On the booklet, Brad Delson wrote: "This one has a special place in my heart. Part of the inspiration behind this song was an attempt to play with a particular back-and-forth song structure. Also, a foreshadowing of Shinoda's melodic facility."
Although the track title says "1998", the song features Chester Bennington doing backing vocals, meaning it was recorded after 1998.
Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
