Collaborative work to be released 10th of July – New song, with fans vocals already available on streaming.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda announced a colaboration album crafted on Twitch with input from his fans. The album, called Dropped Frames, Vol. 1, will arrive on July 10th through his own Kenji Kobayashi Productions label.
Instead of making an album on his own, Shinoda reached out to fans on his Twitch channel to get their feedback, Dropped Frames, Vol. 1 owes its creation to it’s four days per week Twitch livestreams, in which he made music.
“Dropped Frames is just as much about the live channel as it is about the ‘album,'” Shinoda stated. “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.” He added, “What comes out is a product of the viewers’ suggestions, my spur-of-the-moment ideas, and whatever inexplicable magic is floating in between.”
As a sneak peak, Shinoda has released three songs of the album online: “Open Door”, which received hundreds of vocal submissions from fans and incorporated seven voices into the final recording, and two instrumental tunes — “Super Galaxtica” (a retro Nintendo Game Boy sounding song) and “Osiris”..
Watch "Open Door" the first single of the album.
