Linkin Park’s new collaboration with Pusha T and Stormzy was partially inspired by Mike Shinoda’s love of basketball. The song uses fouling out of a game as metaphor for the end of a relationship. Mike Shinoda also said it is an outlier track that does not fit in with the rest of the album. He described the song as ‘sarcastic’ in tone and a ‘change of pace’.
“Good Goodbye” is the third single from their sixth album One More Light due out in May.
