Bring Me the Horizon recently released “Wonderful Life” off their new album “Amo” (out January 25), but it seems the song wasn’t originally written for the effort. During an interview on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter, frontman Oli Sykes revealed that him and keyboardist Jordan Fish were recruited to help write material for Limp Bizkit‘s new album, “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants,” and that the track actually came out of those sessions.
Sykes said the following:
“Last year, me and Jordan went and worked with Fred Durst on a Limp Bizkit album. It just didn’t work out, to be honest. He just didn’t show up most of the time. Lovely guy, but I don’t think he was ready to make an album. I think he was pushed into it a bit, like, his managers and people said ‘These are the guys you want to work with.’ So we gave him all these ideas and I mean it was just bad from day one, to be honest.”
He also added:
“It’s one of them things, looking back, where it wasn’t meant to be. One good thing came out of it: me and Jordan wrote this riff and I one day decided the tempo and key matched almost perfectly with the song. So we de-Bizkit‘d it a bit, and it ended up sounding pretty sick.”
