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.”
