Spin caught up with Mike Shinoda and got the scoop on what’s in store for Linkin Park in 2010. The album is being produced by Rick Ruben and is about halfway done at the moment, Shinoda comments that it sounds “brand new”.
He went on to say “there are so many different ways to make music these days with virtual instruments, software applications, physical instruments, and computer programs. Then when you get in the position of being able to use almost any of it — that’s what we did on Minutes to Midnight . We wanted to play with as many instruments and sounds as we could. But on the new record, now that we have a sense of everything that’s available to us, we can reel it in a bit and focus on just the things that we like, which so far is turning out to mean music that is more beat-driven and has a keyboard and drum machine kind of feel.”
The album is still as of now untitled, head over to Spin for the rest of the interview.
