While many metal fans might only know who Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green is in passing, just about everyone knows who Chino Moreno is. The Deftones frontman collaborated with Green for a bonus track on his second solo album, Beautiful Things. “Right Outside” will only be a bonus track on the digital release of the album, which will be out this coming Tuesday (17) on Photo Finish records, but it’s streaming online at RollingStone.com. “I wrote the song after I listened to the Crosses EP over and over, thinking of Chino and inspired by him, so I couldn’t believe when he agreed to sing on it and wrote some parts,” Green tells Rolling Stone. It was a dream come true to work with him.
Much like Chino’s side project ††† (Crosses) or some of the more experimental Deftones tracks , “Right Outside” is ambient and melodic, with Green and Moreno’s signature voices blending together. If you’re expecting heavy, you’ve come to the wrong place, but anyone that appreciates melody has found themselves a new favorite song. Check it out here.
