    Linkin Park have uploaded another episode of LPTV. This episode focuses on the band discussing the LIVING THINGS album cover and shows how they chose the final image used. Check it out below:

    So the album cover was pretty much "I like this image better" rather than some deep meaning or message behind it other than "energy" .. However I might be wrong since we only got to see three minutes of footage.

    And how assy of iTunes :lol: .. Maybe that's the reason why some titles ended up being "weaker", it kinda got rushed.

    This is nothing new for iTunes and they aren't the only distributor that set their own deadlines. Amazon and Rhapsody do the same thing. Unless you have a truly independent line of distro you're going to receive hard deadlines.

    He's had the basic look for a while, but he's just now starting to get the proper grayness. :lol:

    I'm glad to see that after 12 years signed to a major music label, and having sold 50+ million albums, Linkin Park still struggle with deadlines like the rest of us! I imagine that iTunes is like the long suffering College lecturers I had a few years ago. "Ok, we'll give you one more day for this essay, FINAL deadline!"

    I love how during what appears to be a stressful time, Phoenix seems more concerned about finishing his burger. Glad to see this man has his priorities straight!

    I really like the album cover.

    On a slightly different topic but still related to Living Things:

    Has anyone noticed that Ethan Mates site reads: "Mixed all B Sides and Bonus material for LP’s “Living Things”"

    Interesting to see that there seems to already be some bonus/B-Side material ready to roll. Unless of course, it's simply referring to the various live tracks (mostly from the iTunes Festival) that he mixed for the Burn It Down single b-sides, for example.

    I'm pretty bummed out Mike doesn't just make the album art any more. Significantly more bummed out that the entire process pretty much boiled down to "Let's see what of this guys stuff we like the best".
