    Lisa Ling's new documentary series "This Is Life" will be premiering on CNN in a few days' time, and a minute-long trailer which features original music by Linkin Park band member Mike Shinoda has been making the rounds online during the past couple of weeks. Shinoda's involvement was confirmed by Ling in a Facebook post:

    You can check out the trailer and hear the music below:


    The instrumental track, perhaps one of a batch that might be used in the series, features an electronic backbeat laced with Shinoda's unmistakeable guitar work.

    According to a press release from CNN, "This Is Life" will provide viewers a glimpse of "sub-cultures and communities that are unusual, extraordinary and sometimes dangerous".

    Sounded good, don't know if I would call it unmistakable. Looks like a cool show too.

    This instrumental track is great. Sounds a bit like Lockjaw. Hope we'll get a full instrumental or song of this!

    To be fair, I do find Mike's guitar work to be very recognizable. Not in the way that Slash or Jimmy Page is recognizable, but in the fact that the guitar parts he records usually have a certain 'tone' to them, moreso than Brad even...so that when you hear a Mike Shinoda produced track, you know it's him who did it.

    Sounds like Complimentary with the lead as guitar instead of synths and a flare of Lockjaw.

    I don't care where, even if it is just a free download on his blog, but this has to be released for real.
