    Complex got a chance to hear a few tracks from Linkin Park's 5th studio album "LIVING THINGS" and chat with Mike Shinoda. It's a great in-depth interview which focuses on a lot of topics ranging from Mike's favorite rappers, Linkin Park's influences and also reveals new details about LIVING THINGS, namely the track "UNTIL IT BREAKS" which is said to be a "rap-heavy" track with "big healthy drums". Check out some excerpts and be sure to read the full interview below.

    Mike also discusses his favorite rappers:

    That's what I thought, haha.

    So Until It Breaks is a rap-heavy joint with Mike spitting "over a bed of big healthy drums"? :oface:

    So it seems like UNTIL IT BREAKS could be another "statement" track..? We'd have 2 confirmed rap songs then..


    CAN'T WAIT!!! :'D

    Awesome! Some more rapping and with Mike doing more of a freestyle thing, I think the songs with rapping are going to sound a little less "cheesy" and more raw. Really excited for June 26th!

    Cool Interview. I really enjoeyed reading it.
    Hope complex.com sonn will release an article with descriptions and their opinion about the five songs they heard.
    What's interesting, obviously they heard one song SPIN didn't hear, i.e. Until It Breaks.

    Spin heard: Lost In the Echo, In My Remains, Burn It Down, I'll Be Gone, Castel of Glass.
