LINKIN PARK's Mike Shinoda will release a new solo record, "Dropped Frames, Vol. 1", on July 10 via his Kenji Kobayashi Productions label. The LP will feature the first batch of instrumentals inspired by Shinoda's live Twitch streams from his home studio, with assistance from his fans.
"'Dropped Frames' is just as much about the live channel as it is about the 'album," Mike said in a statement. "The collection of songs is a highlight reel of the tracks I make on the channel, but a big part of the experience is the stream itself.
"When I start, I usually have very little idea of where it will go. What comes out is a product of the viewers' suggestions, my spur-of-the-moment ideas, and whatever inexplicable magic is floating in between."
You can now listen to the first three songs from "Dropped Frames, Vol. 1" — "Open Door", "Osiris" and "Super Galaxtica" — below.
"Dropped Frames, Vol. 1" track listing:
01. Open Door 02. Super Galaxtica 03. Duckbot 04. Cupcake Cake
05. El Rey Demonio 06. Doodle Buzz 07. Channeling Pt. 1 (feat. Dan Mayo) 08. Osiris 09. Babble Bobble 10. Session McSessionface 11. Neon Crickets 12. Booty Down
Mike's full-length solo album called "Post Traumatic", came out last year. Some of the disc was inspired by the death nearly three years ago of LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington. The latter was found dead in his Los Angeles-area home on July 20, 2017 after hanging himself. LINKIN PARK headlined an all-star tribute concert for Bennington in October 2017 in Los Angeles but has not announced any future plans for recording or touring.

2018 marks the beginning of new chapter in the history of the multi-platinum hard rock quintet featuring--Ivan Moody (vocals), Zoltan Bathory (guitar), Jeremy Spencer (drums), Jason Hook (guitar), and Chris Kael (bass).
