    In a recent interview with MTV.com after the Grammy's, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington revealed that the album for his solo project Snow White Tan will be delayed until 2007, in order for him to further focus on his commitments with Linkin Park.

    "It was a natural decision,"
    the singer said. "My record can wait. A good record should still sound good two years from now."

    In other news, the band further discussed their committments with producer Rick Rubin as well as how picking him as a producer came about.

    "He has produced so many of our favorite records, of everybody's favorite records, he is just so versatile," Shinoda said. "Anybody who can work with the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, Slayer, System of a Down, Dixie Chicks and Neil Diamond, for us, that is what our sound is based upon. We like to mix different things together in a seamless way and we think Rick is a guy who understands that,

    "He's already given us some really great tips on new things just to get us excited about writing another record," Shinoda said. "One of the things he told of right off the bat is, 'Don't think of yourselves as this is what Linkin Park is supposed to be, you can be whatever you want to be. Write anything that comes to your mind that you like.' So I think the next record is really going to break outside the box. You will recognize it as a Linkin Park record, but something that takes it up a notch."

    You mean to tell me that the total lack of Linkin Park in the title wasn't a dead giveaway? Wow.

    I'm interested because they actually made a recorded mash-up of Numb/Encore and Yesterday.

    Release it on some site, please!

    Yeah but probably not with Chester singing it. Which is why they need to cover Yesterday on the new Linkin Park album.

    Aren't we all. I can guarantee that he will bring new life to LP. I think this will be their best record to date.

    I wanna know about Brad.. Any new guitars? Signature guitars? Any new techniques he's picked up along the 3 years of touring? Will he EVER grow his goatee back!?

    I don't think they'll cover it. It's not them. I could see Chester covering it for his solo project though.

    Sorry Derek, but that's the worst idea ever. Seriously, I'd rather they not release an album if it is going to include covers.

    I wouldn't mind a cover, but it's a bad idea to cover a Beatles song.

    Not a cover on a new album though, maybe for a LPU thing, but new albums should be never before heard music, not covers IMO.

    I really want to here Chaz's solo, but I agree with Chester, LP always comes first before anything. I guess I'll have to listen to Let Down Live and Morning After remix to tide me over. As for the Rick Rubin news, it's getting kinda old.
