"Overstand" is a song by AmirSaysNothing with production by Mike Shinoda, released in the album Endless Brightside.

Background

AmirSaysNothing played as a support act on Mike Shinoda's Outbreak Tour in 2018. In February 2019 they got together to work on new music.[1] A January 2nd release for the collaboration was announced on December 29, 2019.[2] The title of the track, along with artwork and a snippet, was revealed the following day.[3][4] "Clockwatch", produced by Mike Shinoda, is one of two clock themed songs released on the same day, the other being titled "The Times", produced by Wyatt Stromer. Artwork for the tracks was based on photographies by Khalilah Pianta[3] and it revealed a February 23 release date for Amir's debut album, which also happens to be his birthday.[5][6][7][8] However, the album wasn't released on this date as he was still working on the final details.[9][10][11]

Through Twitter, Amir thanked Linkin Park fans for their support. "just wanna send some love out to all the Linkin Park fans who have been showing love and are hyped on this music. i love your energy and i can feel everyone of you. thank you for checking me out and hopefully you find you like me and are in for the long haul. #BIGLOVE"[12]

To promote "Clockwatch", Amir and Mike signed the clock used on the cover and did a giveaway. The winner was a fan named Nicole from Massachusetts.[13]

A second song produced by Mike Shinoda will be in the album[14][15] and had a music video shot on January 5 with director Dylan Park.[16][17] On July 28, Amir announced he received the final mix of his album, Endless Brightside.[18] According to him, the album was started in late 2018 and should have been out by July 2020.[19][20] He blamed the coronavirus pandemic for the delay[21] and reiterated the second song produced by Mike would be coming out on the album along with the music video.[22] He teased it on August 3 with a screenshot of the video and said, "all the Linkin Park fans gonna love this, produced by Mike Shinoda and it ain’t Clockwatch ;)."[23]

On April 23, 2021 Amir announced the release of his album, saying: "a day i’ve been waiting for. // my forthcoming album #EndlessBrightside - coming May 7th 2021. a journey like no other from thought to execution. i cruised up PCH last night & reflected on the work that’s gone into this, the laughs, the struggles, the stress, and now everyday has felt like it’s all coming to fruition. rather than step in the studio with ideas, i just wanted to let it tell me what it was. thankful to all the greats on this record, new & seasoned, thank you all for being apart of my story & helping me bringing the world into it. all the features on this album are all people who i see or talk to very regularly, it’s a family affair with me. click the tag to see everyone involved, full tracklist tomorrow or peep on @itunes because you #PREORDER her right now if that’s how you get down, iiiight see you soon. #BRIGHTSIDE #BrightSideEntertainment #presents #EndlessBrightside #2021 #comingsoon #digital & #vinyl album photography by @khalilah.pianta 🖼"[24]
