Bring Me The Horizon unveiled their new track 'Don't Look Down' last night, which features rapping from Foreign Beggars vocalist Orifice Vulgatron. 

Firstly, give 'Don't Look Down' a spin for yourself:

Different, right? Whatever you make of it, it's definitely different.

As it turns out, quite a few Bring Me The Horizon fans have been a bit down on the new song, and the band have posted the following statement / explanation as a response:

We appreciate the level of passion both good and bad for DLD. We are really proud of what we created, but at the same time, we understand peoples confusion and panic after hearing the track. We were approached by radio one to score a piece of music for a rescore of the movie Drive. Now if you've seen Drive i’m sure you will agree neither anything from our previous albums, nor drown would of fit very well with the vibe of that particular movie, so we decided to create a piece of music that did justice to the amazing scene we was given. we took the opportunity to make something completely different, to do something completely different, something that we wouldn't usually do- although I feel that doesn’t really make sense anymore, because we never do the same thing 2x. We experiment, we change it up, We take risks because we don't want to stay the same and we want to breathe life into this lacklustre genre, and we want to keep you guessing whats coming next. Big up Orifice Vulgatron of Foreign Beggars for collaborating on the track, And once again, if you can tune into BBC 3 tonight at 10 and watch the whole movie, its an amazing project, and we think we smashed our part, and hope you guys feel the same once you've seen it. Peace, BMTH

So that's that explained. For more info on the Drive Rescored project, have a read of this.
