    MySpace Exclusive: More Track Details & Lyrics Revealed in LIVING THINGS Preview

    MySpace had the chance to listen to Linkin Park's upcoming album LIVING THINGS recently and have posted a track by track account of what we can expect from the album. The new album will be out June 26th in the US and this article reveals lyrics for each track and gives a brief description of how they sound. Check it out below:


    Recently Myspace was invited to stop by NRG Studios in North Hollywood to get an exclusive sneak peek at Linkin Park’s upcoming fifth album Living Things, which will be out on June 26 via WBR. Guitarist Brad Delson played host, noting that this disc is an “amalgam of our first releases, which is the sound people know us best for, and that experimental stuff.”

    Delson, who also mentioned that the band listened to a lot of folk music and early Americana during the recording process, added that the shift in sound on this release is due to the fact that the musicians used “a lot of tools we had put aside that we felt comfortable using again.” He added, “It’s a random process where we’re deconstructing things and putting them back together… We just use whatever sounds we think will be best for the record and then figure out how to play them later.”

    While we can’t actually let you hear any of the new tracks we can offer a glimpse into what’s to come (and what the heck Delson is talking about).

    Track: “Lost In The Echo
    Sample Lyric: “We got lost in the echo.”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Epic
    What You Can Expect: A grandiose, swelling number that harkens back to early single “In the End.”

    Track: “In My Remains
    Sample Lyric: “Like an army falling one by one”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Slick
    What You Can Expect: A heavy rocker that slowly builds from a sparse, electronic backbone.

    Track: “Burn It Down
    Sample Lyric: “We’re building it up to break it down”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Single
    What You Can Expect: Listen for yourself [here]

    Track: “Lies Greed Misery
    Sample Lyric: “Now let me show you exactly how the breaking point sounds”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Aggressive
    What You Can Expect: A thrashing, in-your-face number garnished with a hint of dub-step.

    Track: “I’ll Be Gone
    Sample Lyric: “It’s time you let me go”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Ballad
    What You Can Expect: An anthemic radio number that features heavy drums and urgent vocals.

    Track: “Castle of Glass
    Sample Lyric: “I’m only a crack in this castle of glass”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Ambient
    What You Can Expect: A combination of synth and acoustic guitar that creates an atmospheric rocker.

    Track: “Victimized
    Sample Lyric: We didn’t write one down because we were so shaken by the track’s aggression.
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Metallic
    What You Can Expect: Linkin Park’s heaviest song yet, a screaming, heavy rock song that may surprise you.

    Track: “Roads Untraveled
    Sample Lyric: “The love that you lost wasn’t worth what it cost and in time you’ll be glad it’s gone”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Heartbreak
    What You Can Expect: A piano-driven ballad that even features some chimes.

    Track: “Skin To Bone
    Sample Lyric: “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Hypnotic
    What You Can Expect: An electro-driven rhythmic number that goes hard on the experimentation.

    Track: “Until It Breaks
    Sample Lyric: “You woke the devil that I thought you’d left behind”
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Introspective
    What You Can Expect: One of the softer tracks on the album, centered on synth melodies.

    Track: “Tinfoil
    Sample Lyric: This track is instrumental, so…
    Word We Wrote Down To Describe It: Ambient
    What You Can Expect: An intro between tracks that also delves into experimental noises.

    Track: “Powerless
    What You Can Expect: Unfortunately the CD didn’t work so we didn’t get to hear this one.
    Editor's note: I can't seem to access the article on MySpace any more, but the cached article is still available through Google.

    "Unfortunately the CD didn’t work so we didn’t get to hear this one."

    Very strange... maybe the reason why the review was deleted

    "You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind"

    For some reason, that really stood out to me the most. I really love that line.

    Still excited to hear Lies Greed Misery and Castle Of Glass, and of course I want to hear Victimized. This preview also made me excited for Skin To Bone. I think the ArtistDirect preview called it "tripped out," now it's being called hypnotic and experimental. Sweet.

    And even though I'll Be Gone is apparently very much a radio-type song, I really want to hear it for the undeniable When They Come For Me/I'll Be Gone connection. I really want to know the theme there.

    I lol'ed hard at Skin to Bone lyrics:
    “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust"
    These are lyrics from Metallica's The Memory Remains (ash to ash, dust to dust, fade to black...)
    Anyway, amazing description

    Great review! This makes me even more excited than I already am. After all those track by track reviews I feel like I'm going to explode before the album is available

    I think Victimized is Linkin Park making a statement: "You want us to go back to our heavy roots? We're gonna throw out a song so aggressive and mind-blowing that you'll never bitch about nu-metal EVER again." It'll only be MOAR VICTIMIZED!!!

    Thanks for the post credit, but D-Rock really is the first one to post this.

    So props to him too!



    Track: “Victimized”
    Sample Lyric: We didn’t write one down because we were so shaken by the track’s aggression.
