Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaboration with Fall Out Boy. Aoki told Billboard magazine: "I personally worked with Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump. They wrote their lyrics in the studio and sang the vocals. Then later, in a separate studio, the band worked on their live instrumentation, so you get to hear the bass, guitar and drums mixed into a dance record. They were one of my favorite rock collaborations."

    "With the rock, there's the instrumental element," he added. "The mixing process is a bit more complex. It's a bigger beast. But I learned a lot from working with Linkin Park. It took us six months to get 'A Light That Never Comes' into a place that fits comfortable within both of our catalogs. It was worth it."
