    Mike Shinoda Discusses Working With Owen Pallett and Rick Rubin

    NME have posted more from their interview with Mike Shinoda. In this article, Mike talks about working with Owen Pallett on the band's fifth studio album titled "LIVING THINGS". Owen Pallett is known for his work with Arcade Fire as well as composing string arrangements for the likes of Snow Patrol, Duran Duran and R.E.M.

    Speaking to NME, the band's co-frontman Mike Shinoda revealed that drummer Rob Bourdon was the one who got in contact with Pallett, but that the whole band "love" what he did with their track.

    Asked about working with Pallett, Shinoda replied: "He worked on one song. We tried a second one, but he got busy with something else, so I actually ended up doing the strings on my own. He did the strings on 'I'll Be Gone'. I've not met him in person though, I think he may have met our drummer Rob, those two were emailing back and forth. I really love what he did with the song and what he did with Arcade Fire is just sensational."
    Mike also spoke about working with producer Rick Rubin again on LIVING THINGS.

    The singer also spoke about why they opted to work with producer Rick Rubin once again, who he described as "a great fit".

    He said of this: "We considered other producers, but not for long. Rick is a good fit for us in a number of different ways. He's so experienced in so many genres, he refers so many different types of music. Our tastes line up really well, so he's a great fit for us."

    I'm thinking Phoenix did the strings and Mike did the arrangement. It'd be fucking cool if he played them but I doubt that since that was the only instrument he didn't do in Fort Minor.

    I was wondering when this sentence would make it into this thread.

    Sounds exciting! And it's nice to read that sometimes other boys in the band are doing the phonecalls and e-mails. Regarding strings, I would've expected Phoenix in that case to contact Owen, not Rob, which is a very good surprise!

    Also, it would be awesome if what Jack said is right, having Phoenix playing some strings in the album..

    approves.

    Though it wouldn't surprise me if Mike did them himself, it's been 7 years since FM, he's had plenty of time to learn how to play strings.
