New Divide Fan version

May 14, 2009

I have never seen anything like this…A fan has taken the short snippets of “New Divide” from the 30 second promo clip…and made an entire instrumental song out of it, to guesstimate what the song might sound like!

For anyone that was told this is “the demo” of the song…it’s not. But it is a nice piece of “fan music!”

Even though I don’t think “New Divide” actually sounds much like their song, I love the energy they put into it. Incidentally, the same fan / youtube user posted our actual promo video as well (below).


PS – the video went well today. Good job, Mr. Hahn.

    Woo, the 32th second is cool, where Chester and the girl are like both thinking of something xD

    ANd the song is nice, really.

    I found that video too and got a little confused, thanks for clearing thing up!

    yo mike, this “demo” is actually by a guy called xefuzion. I think he’s a genius with making from a short 30 second
    snippet such a song. But I can’t even wait for the real song, great work… And a big WOW to xefuzion

    It’s nice that you tell us because in youtube someone say it is your song (new divide) someone say it fake… I listen that song few days ago..

    thank you very much and I’m looking forward to New Divide on 18 th ^^ luv ya guys

    That’s a great remix… Should I consider it an unofficial teaser? HA!

    How was the video shooting, Mike?

    You rock man, take care!

    Hey Mike I had a question for you… (Off Topic). I plan on painting my guitar. I had saw you painted a few of your guitars and was wondering how you did it. I have looked up a few things… but your way seems much different. and I like your textures.. if you could reply to this I would greatly appreciate it man.

    PS – Did you like…delete this blog or something ? Cuz my computer froze for a good minute, and then when it came back to reality, I pulled up a new tab on here, and this blog was gone…lol . Weird . πŸ˜› And your new shoes = sexy ! πŸ˜› If you make shoes again, can please put blue on it ? πŸ˜› You dont have to tho . πŸ™‚

    Haha, XEFUZION, what a crazy story! Actually it’s not funny, but at least we have you here now πŸ™‚ Good job, I like your instrumental. Makes us even more curious what the real New Divide will sound like!
    Mike, as some other people mentioned, here is definitely something wrong with your blog … was tricky to find a way to post.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Interesting interpretation. Can’t wait for the song! And like I said before I’ve watched the trailer million times and have to limit it now, haha. Hope the video is gonna be out very soon so I won’t have a chance to piss my pants πŸ˜‰

    I already listened to his demo! Nice work he did! I like Linkin Park fan music, even i’ve made something a few months ago: , it’s inspired by where’d you go
    But i listen to the hole where’d you go song, and this guy really made of listening a few seconds music a hole track..

    But the video you have placed is made by that guy but someonne else uploaded this on youtube…
    The real person is somewhere on youtube to…

    And eemz Mike, i can’t see this post if i am logged in in the LPN, only if i ma not logged in…

    Greetings from Belgium,

    Sup everyone, I’m the actual creator of this New Divide (so called demo) Remix.
    For the latest version of this track and download link (yes, the YouTube one is oudated), visit
    And thanks mike for putting my song on your blog!.
    I would also like to note that the user you linked to is not me but someon that stole the song and uploaded it as a linkin park demo.
    My video on the other hand got marked and deleted by warner music group (I don’t even think WMG is allowed to do this).
    Also, I’m not a “they” , i did it myself with Reason 4 and a Ibanez guitar πŸ™‚ .

    personalmente io penso che la canzone fatta dai fan sia molto convincente… anche se nn potrΓ  mai essere come qll originale dei LP!!! e poi come hanno fatto a crearne un intero demo ascoltando solo pochi secondi secondi di quella originale?!? O_o
    ovviamente io preferisco quella dei LP… perΓ² nn ce la faccio piΓΉ ad aspettare!!! XC

  15. miKer0cks on May 15, 2009 at 8:52 am

    i’m impressed by the fan’s work. it’s a very nice instrumental and i’m sure it took a lot of time to construct something like this together. from what i heard about what “new divide” sounds like, i wouldn’t even think that this was the demo. it sounds like it has a completely different vibe than what LP did and from the little snippet that we got to hear from the clip.

  19. ThePrincess on May 15, 2009 at 5:49 am

    Then i can’t wait to hear the ‘ REAL SONG ‘ …anyway .. i think something wrong with your site Mike !!!

  20. CuteWhiteBunny on May 15, 2009 at 2:46 am

    Pretty cool. They must be talented to make something that good.

    But I’m guessing that your version will be better.

    3 days to go!!!

  21. keineAhnung on May 15, 2009 at 1:42 am

    wow that’s an awesome song! I wish I was as creative as them and was able to make such clips…but unfortunately my creativity is limited to solving math problems -.-
