The Light finns med på Disturbeds nya album Immortalized som släpptes 21 augusti via Reprise Records.
Bandets sångare David Draiman kommenterar låten: ”Go figure. Disturbed songs with an air of positivity. Who would have ever thought?
”You know, the only way that you get to appreciate the darkness is by contrasting it with light. I think that people have utilized our music in particular to get them through the difficult periods in their lives, to triumph against adversity, to overcome obstacles. And it’s been my experience, with people in my life, or friends that I have or have had, that sometimes those periods in our lives that are dark ones can be so daunting and you let them overwhelm you to the extent that you succumb to hopelessness and you succumb to stagnation. And the truth be told, everything is a pathway. Sometimes you have to go through dark periods in your life in order to find the answer that you need, in order to become stronger, in order to see the light, per se. And it’s just putting things in that perspective.
”That song was actually the very first song that was both written and recorded for this entire session. Because it is as different as it is, that was one of the first ones that I was, like, ’Hmmm, I’m not so sure. I mean, I recognize that it’s a big hook, but stylistically, how do I… Can I come to terms with this?’ And that was another one of the reasons that made me wanna go out to Chicago to get in front of the [other] guys [in Disturbed] and throw some of these ideas at them in person, some of the things to help reassure me.”
