Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) Says The Second Volume Of His “Dropped Frames” Series Is Already Finished

Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) recently released a mostly instrumental solo album, titled “Dropped Frames, Vol. 1,” and now it looks like more new music is on the way. During a recent interview with Forbes, Shinoda confirmed that volume two has already been completed and that volume three is in the works.

Shinoda said the following:

“These albums, ‘Dropped Frames‘ is gonna be the first of at least three. I’ve got the second one done and the third one is in progress. And I say in progress, basically it’s just tightening up and mixing stuff that I made on the stream. But certainly it’s a thing I wouldn’t have done unless I was in this situation that I’m in right now.

It’s also funny cause it’s clearly not for everybody. Instrumental music is not your way to the Billboard top five (laughs). But anybody who knows my discography knows I’ve done instrumentals often, on every record, every couple of records there [are] instrumental tracks.

A few different instrumental pieces that have gone to film and TV as well. I feel like there is a poetry to the instrumental that it leaves an openness to interpretation in terms of the content that is a lot of fun. And I haven’t ever done that before on a full-length album.”

He also added that he is “trying to get them out a month apart from each other.”

Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) will be releasing a new solo album titled “Dropped Frames, Vol. 1” on July 10. The mostly instrumental effort is a result of Shinoda’s recent livestreams on Twitch in which he worked on music with assistance from fans. He told Spin the following:

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

01. “Open Door”
02. “Super Galaxtica”
03. “Duckbot”

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has premiered a new video for his song “World’s On Fire.“ This track is from his latest album “Post Traumatic.“

Shinoda directed the clip with Juan M. Urbina and he had the following to say about it:

“My music and anime have had a long history of crossing paths, from the fan videos edited over Linkin Park‘s music, to our original video for ‘Breaking The Habit‘. This new video for ‘World’s On Fire‘ is a lighthearted video that focuses on a female protagonist as she learns to control her unique power.”

“I’ve never taken an animated project from beginning to end. This video, for ‘World’s On Fire,’ seemed to arrive in my head with a full story, setting, and characters all at once, and I couldn’t ignore it.”
