Linkin Park Prep New Album

Published: 2005-12-09
Rap rock hybrid, Linkin Park, have been busy working on new material for a new album for the past month now. "We're looking forward to putting out a new album next year," Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson told Billboard.

The still untitled album will be the follow-up to the 5.14 mega million selling album Meteora. Rap rock has been a staple to describe this band in the past. Now, that it is safe to say that nu-metal is no more, Linkin Park are taking their sound into a whole new direction. With every album that they make, they are trying to get away from that stereotype as far as possible.

There are unreleased songs from their prior recording sessions that have not been used yet, but vocalist Mike Shinoda says you might not hear them on the new record. "The band is always evolving. We like the momentum created by coming up with new songs." The new album will feature Mike Shinoda's first production credits.

Meanwhile, Shinoda is supporting his hip hop side project, Fort Minor, which debuted at number 60 last week on the Billboard album charts with The Rising Tied. The hip hop act will be touring come early next year.
