    Mike Shinoda spoke at the Style Studio during this year's Grammys, and gave fans a hint about what to expect for the new disc:

    "Um, before summer. We are... We had narrowed it down to about sixteen to eighteen songs, and we are in the mixing stage right now. We're still trying to tighten a few things up, musically, and we're mixing some songs."

    Mike also enjoyed the experience itself, which, he remarks, helps him stay in touch with old friends:

    "I come through... I think I've come through every year for the last few years. It's cool. It's also... I always run into friends that I haven't seen in a while every time I come to these things. I just caught Black Thought (from The Roots) and some friends that work for some of the companies. It's always good to hang out for a second."

    The band has yet to publicly announce a release date.

    Thanks Miguel!

    16-18 songs is good. It's awesome. Hopefully, though, the majority of them aren't instrumentals or anything. It'd be a good present to us for waiting SOOO long if they were all full length songs, or at least 16 of them were... cuz I know Joe always has his "session" on the album as well. I'm gettin really anxious for the album now that it's in the final stages... let's cross our fingers for the next couple months and hope for an April release!

    Intro, an instrumental plus maybe outro and that's still about 14 full lenght songs. Hopefully.

    In terms of instrumentals, I think it would be cool if there was an instrumental or two after the actual track finished playing, rather than have a separate track for an instrumental.

    Perfect example of this would be the cool beat at the end of AFI's "Affliction" off of Decemberunderground. Linkin Park should do something like that, imo.

    Fixed it for you sir.

    And yes, all LP members are like that with the start stop. It's why my interview transcript was difficult to follow cause I had to edit things hardcore for them to flow somewhat.

    yay, more meaningless news that we already know. before summer, 16-18 songs (we've been told these different numbers by about half the band now), no release date, no title. maybe someday we'll have some REAL news on here about the album. sorry, i'm just being impatient at this point. i can't wait for the single in a few weeks though! WEEKS! not months! that feels kinda good.

    You may be crushed to know that the March release date was "bad info" according to Brad, so that's not happening. ;)

    Check the news post about the Rob Chat.

    "bad info?" It came from the LPU! Greaaaaaaaaaat.

    Let's just get it over with and say that the new album will still be untitled in 2010 and we'll never actually get a single.

    The single in March was confirmed, the album release at that time was never confirmed. Everyone should know that when a single comes out..it usually takes about a month or two until the real album comes out.

    So basically, don't expect the album before May folks.

    Maybe that's their new style... Extra short songs :)

    These are very good news about the album.

    This is only encouraging if that means they know which 16-18 songs are going on the album and that's how long it's going to be. Otherwise this is nothing new. Although I wouldn't have guessed the final CD to have over 14 songs so if this is true...:D.

    Which would be great, no more 40 minute album.

    ...at least we hope.
