    Mike recently had this to say about the new album in an e-mail update from LinkinPark.com;

    "we've been working on new stuff for a few months at this point, and we have about 40-50 ideas. some of them are just little musical phrases, some are full blown songs with vocals. all are very exciting.
    as many of you know, we'll be working with producer rick rubin on the next album. we were looking for someone with experience in diverse musical styles, whose music taste is as diverse as ours. seeing that rick has produced albums for groups like red hot chili peppers, slayer, beastie boys, neil diamond, jay-z, system of a down, and johnny cash, i think it's safe to say that he's pretty versatile. the other guys have put me in charge of production on our end, so you'll see that the production credit on the next record will read "rick rubin and mike shinoda." i have to thank the guys in a huge way for trusting me with this honor and challenge--we're going to make a great record. as for the sound of it, i think you will recognize our style and personality in the sound, but we definitely want to step outside the box and make something new and different. we have been challenging ourselves to do something that will keep all the things we/you like about linkin park, and then add new sounds and styles that you've never heard from us."

    Yeah, pretty boring news from Mike considering we knew it all. Although, I guess it's nice to keep getting news we already know than no news at all.

    Yeah...all of the things highlighted in there were things we've already heard in earlier news posts. I guess it's good to have it all in one news post at the top of the site for a while for all of the people that haven't seen it yet, but still...the majority of us have heard all of this already.
