Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Posts Two New Songs
Linkin Park’s MC Mike Shinoda has released a couple more songs from his upcoming Post Traumatic LP – watch videos for “Crossing a Line” and “Nothing Makes Sense Anymore” below!
The Post Traumatic LP is scheduled to be released June 15th.
“It’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness,” Shinoda said of Post Traumatic in a statement. “If people have been through something similar, I hope they feel less alone. If they haven’t been through this, I hope they feel grateful.” Like its introductory EP, the album tackles Shinoda’s experience with loss as well as healing.
“The past six months have been a rollercoaster,” Shinoda said in a statement in January. “Amidst the chaos, I’ve started to feel an intense gratitude – for your tributes and messages of support, for the career you have allowed me to have, and for the simple opportunity to create. Today, I’m sharing three songs I wrote and produced, with visuals that I filmed, painted, and edited myself. At its core, grief is a personal, intimate experience. As such, this is not Linkin Park, nor is it Fort Minor – it’s just me. Art has always been the place I go when I need to sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead. I don’t know where this path goes, but I’m grateful I get to share it with you.”
Shinoda is moving forward after the loss of LP bandmate Chester Bennington. Do you like the direction?
