The most ambiguous track on LIVING THINGS since the announcement of the track-list has arguably been track eleven, TINFOIL. The song hasn't been mentioned in any of the early preview articles in the past few days and due to its positioning on the album as track eleven, has been largely speculated as an instrumental song. The eleventh track has been a place-holder for instrumental songs on earlier Linkin Park records, namely Hybrid Theory and Meteora with Cure For the Itch and Session, respectively. TINFOIL is also the only track on LIVING THINGS that appeared as a working title during the creation of A Thousand Suns. The confirmation of TINFOIL being an instrumental comes from ARTISTdirect editor Rick Florino, who in response to a fan on Twitter confirmed the illusive TINFOIL will indeed be an "instrumental interlude".

No description of the song has surfaced via previews of LIVING THINGS, but it's good to finally put an end to the speculation of how TINFOIL fits into Linkin Park's fifth studio record. LIVING THINGS is set for release June 26th and you can pre-order the album right now at lpassociaton.com/livingthings.
