We Moved! WE MOVED

New Billboard Video Interview

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Billboard has posted a new video of Mike talking about the direction the new album is going in, New Divide and Fort Minor.

"I don't think it's indicative of where the next record is going," Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda says of "New Divide," the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" soundtrack song that hit No. 1 on both the Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts this summer. In a video interview with Billboard.com in conjunction with Fuse, the co-vocalist/ rapper explained that the band's follow up to 2007 No. 1 album "Minutes To Midnight" is underway now that the album by Dead By Sunrise, singer Chester Bennington's side project, is finished and nearing its Oct. 13 release.

"We mentally want to get back to [2000's "Hybrid Theory"] not because we want to sound like [that], because I don't think we do," Shinoda says of the forthcoming Linkin Park album, which they aim to release in the first half of 2010. "But we want to make this record a record with identity, hopefully not one you've heard before. One you can listen to and say, 'That's brand new... It's definitely Linkin Park, but it's definitely different.'"
