Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Announces New Album Created on Twitch

Recommended Posts

At the beginning of quarantine, Mike Shinoda fell in love with Twitch. He spent every weekday creating art on the platform as fans shared their feedback on what he was doing in real-time. Four days a week were dedicated to making music, while one day a week was spent working on visual art.

Now, 12 of the tracks the Linkin Park co-founder created with fans will comprise his latest project, Dropped Frames, Vol. 1, which is out on July 10 on his Kenji Kobayashi Productions .

During the creation of the project, Shinoda offered fans “ShinodaBucks” and took their suggestions via a live chat.

Dropped Frames is just as much about the live channel as it is about the ‘album’,” Shinoda says. “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.”

The project was basically guided by fans to where it is now: a mesh of “Mariachi,” “Bollywood hip-hop” and “90’s boy band pop” suggestions, featuring flute loops, Nintendo GameBoy-driven chords and vocal chants made up of hundreds of fan submissions.

In advance of the project, Shinoda released three tracks, “Open Door,” “Super Galaxtica” and “Osiris.”

Check them out below:

Here’s the tracklisting:

Super Galaxtica

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
