The trio could be working on a song together very soon.

One OK Rock frontman Taka Moriuchi has revealed that he has begun work on a new song with Mike Shinoda and superstar DJ Steve Aoki.

We caught up with Taka in this month's edition of Rock Sound and quizzed him about his working relationship with Mike over the past year:

"He had some ideas for our new album, but we didn't have much time. Next time I saw him was at Summersonic (Festival) in Japan. We had a good conversation in the green room and he said 'I have some new ideas for your album and maybe some other artists too'. So I said, 'Yeah just send it to me - sketches, songs or whatever'...And actually, I'm working with Mike Shinoda and one more person, another artist, but I don't know when it's going to get released yet. I'm pretty excited to do a session again". 

When we asked Taka about who this third person was on the track, he revealed that Aoki was involved:

"I think it's pretty secret but it's Steve Aoki, me and Mike Shinoda on a collaboration. But I didn't record it yet, so..."

Fingers crossed they find the studio time soon.
