Five Finished Songs

November 15, 2009

Album Update:

At last count, there were upward of 60 tracks on the “band” hard drive. Obviously, they’re in all states of completion (except “finished”). Well, 60 is a big number, and focusing down on all of those to try to get them finished sounded terrifying not to mention silly; a good chunk of those are probably not really our best stuff anyway. So we narrowed down to 20. These 20 aren’t all going to make the album, they’re just the best songs we’ve got so far.

Of the 20, we’re trying to focus on 5 right now, and get them finished. The work has been going exceptionally well–I think all the guys are more focused than ever. I don’t know for sure, but I would bet that the average song length on these is around the 4-5 minute mark; a bit longer format than our usual stuff. We’re really enjoying being in the studio right now, trying to be as creative and adventurous as we can, while letting our sense of songwriting, rhythm, and melody guide the way through the chaos.

    I am sooooooo excited! Thanks Mike for giving us all an update! Thank you for working so hard to give us the best music possible from you guys! I appreciate it and I am sure the rest of the fans do too!

  21. Princessofshadow on November 17, 2009 at 4:03 pm

    Hey, Mike! You are very talentid, I think. How this great songs (like a Esier To Run, Numb, Crawling and many others) coming in your head? I wish for you inspiration! GooD LucK

  22. LPfan_mar on November 17, 2009 at 8:47 am

    i’m so anxious… The next album will be great, of sure!
    P.S. : If you want, you can make a album with 60 tracks… ( the fans let you make that ) LOL.

  23. TheCaliFornianBoy on November 17, 2009 at 7:34 am

    Hi ! I follow LP since Hybrid Theory’s out , and i reflect about this amazing part of my life i lived with this music whitch built myself.
    I guess that LP grew up, a fantastic debut album that was HT, the MONUMENTAL Meteora ( it made a piece in the music history) and M2M.This fouth album should have a new way as the band members wanted to, but i guess it’s time to make a little break and see these all past 3 albums.i’m pretty sure that a “mix” i don’t know if it’s exactly the right word of all the emotions, fellings, music,style of these albums must goes to this 4th album, to make it a new Lp page and a new Music Hstory page as Meteora and HT did in the past !

  24. Wotur11 on November 17, 2009 at 5:27 am

    mike its such a great post! i love to hear good news about the band ๐Ÿ™‚ yea you are right you guys are the ppl who make music so just create whatever you wanna make we will always be here to support you guys!! ps: mike do you remember about the exam i told you? i ve just received the call from my teacher saying that i passed it and won the 3rd prize!! woohoo right now i just wanna say thanks to LP becuz the LP songs always support and console my when im down and when im about to give up everything…you guys give my the strength to deal with all hardships in life ๐Ÿ™‚ Though it seems a pretty good result i must continue to try to reach other goals right? Love you guys <33

  25. Viลกnja300 on November 17, 2009 at 4:55 am

    aaaw,thank you very much for this,i’m really looking forward to it….i think i will overdose myself with musical happiness,first chester’s solo album and now this…i think we won’t have to wait so long this time for new stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ i wish you to enjoy the process very much again ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. CuteWhiteBunny on November 17, 2009 at 4:01 am

    Working on a small selection of the songs seems like a very smart and practical idea. It must save hours of work on songs that aren’t as good as some of the others.

    Nice to hear that you’re still working on the new album and not slacking off. Thanks for the update.

    I’m really looking forward to the new album and I know it will be the best you can do.

  27. flamemaker on November 17, 2009 at 2:48 am

    i hope the new LP album will release faster

  28. L_Mohammadreza_P on November 16, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    very nice guys the linkin park new album its BOMB I cant wait IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII LIKE IT

  29. MMASIS on November 16, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    Hey Mike, this is the best news i’ve had. The band i’ve always adired is still going to make music. I dont know what will i do iff you guys some day stop, music is my life, and i started appreciating it when Hybird Theory came out. I’m a music producer i live in PR. Thanks to you’re inspiration and God’s help i’ve had a great carrer till now, im only 20 years old and God gave me the gift of my first latin Grammy. My focus now that i have a good name is make my rock band in the latin industry inspired by you guys, theres no great music like yours in this latin market and i want to make it, and i know i can, with teachers like you it would be a succes my email is tainymasflow@gmail.com

  30. WidyaRahayu on November 16, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    i’m patiently waiting

  31. Hardin on November 16, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    Very nice. I was fortunate enough to meet some of the linkin park guys at the Dead by sunrise show in Los Angeles (Chester & Mr. Hahn). Hopefully one day I can meet Mike becuase I really like your work. Probably heard it a million times but I can’t wait to hear the new stuff. You guys have so much talent and that is one of the reasons why you guys are so successful. All I’am trying to say in a nutshell is that you guys never let me down.

  32. Vamp09 on November 16, 2009 at 4:14 pm

    Great Analysis and speaking abt That 5 finished songs , It reminds me of a song from Papa Roach , Between Angel and insect even though the song was longer than 4-5 minute mark; but still โ€ฆ anyway just stopped by to say keep focus and keep a good work coz with that , all the chaos will never happen ๐Ÿ™‚ .. thanks for the update and canโ€™t wait for the new album !!

    Best regard

  33. bec on November 16, 2009 at 4:05 pm

    Weren’t you meant to have this album out nearly a year ago?
    I’m sure I remember you boys (hope you don’t mind me calling you boys as you still call us kids and I’m only a little bit younger) saying that you weren’t gonna take so much time between albums this time.

    Just a thought, but what would an LP album sound like if you set a 3 month deadline, stuck to it and all spent time in 1 room jamming?
    Please don’t take that as a sarcastic comment, I’m just wondering how the more traditional method of rock song writing would sound as a Linkin Park album.

  34. Morinoajin on November 16, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    Can’t wait for the new album! I’m spreading DBS’s new video atm…trying the hardest I can to spread it everywhere I know on the web ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be glad to do that again with the new LP album โค โค
    2010 Woot!

  35. joana on November 16, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    I cant wait for the new album! Im sure it will be awesome! Love ya! โค

  36. stringfreak on November 16, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    as a musician, i would be happy if you could upload some videos and/or images from the studio.
    i enjoyed the last one with the mpc and pod so much!
    thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. PankakeMunky on November 16, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    i’m glad to hear about the progress on the new album. as long as you’re updating us, i won’t always think you guys are slacking off. hearing that you went down to 20 from 60 songs is very impressive. keep up the great work and hope you can show us something soon!

  38. spraypaintNinkpens on November 16, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    5 songs done, that’s it? I guess we really shouldn’t expect an album in 2010 because you take forever to release a 12 track cd. I wish you’d release a cd faster than 3-4 years because everyone is going to inevitably start to make people lose interest in the band. Lockjaw was made in a day and it’s a stellar track; I don’t understand how you can say you want to release more music, than once again take over 3 years to release a studio album.

  39. GiorgosBalt on November 16, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    The birth of a multiplatinum album ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I can’t wait to listen to the new Linkin Park sound!
    Good luck and enjoy yourselves!

  40. vampki55 on November 16, 2009 at 12:56 pm

    yay!! i can’t wait until u guys are done! cuz i know for sure the final outcome will be awesome hopefully more hard rock then the Minutes to Midnight. choose carefully =) no pressure

  41. Marco on November 16, 2009 at 12:44 pm

    everyday i think u guyz can’t get any better. and everyday u guyz prove me horribly wrong!!!!! thank u LP. U guyz literally saved my life and in return i willingly submit my life to your music. my one dream to meet u guys will probably never come true but, as long as you guys make music then I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!

  42. vickylp on November 16, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    woooo hooo hoooo! yeeees! i can’t wait!!!

  43. rockermeg on November 16, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    Ahh the tension is unbearable!
    It sounds like you’re making great progress, and at quite a good pace.
    60 is well below the number you had for M2M. Is that a good or bad thing?
    Wow, I can’t wait. Saw a brief interview with Chester in ‘Big Cheese’ magazine talking about the new music.
    It sounds exciting

    Keep going Mike! You’re doing great work! Actually I am surprised you already got so far. That means you guys still becoming better… (To all the other fans: I know it sounds unpossible to become more better then they are.) Chester, Dave, Brad, Joe, Rob and Mike: Good Job, good Job! I am pumped!

    (BTW, 2 days ago I uploaded for the first time my produced demo’s online: http://www.myspace.com/therisingsunproject)
    I called the project “Rising Sun” because my music still is rising. Like you’re new album is doing right now. It isn’t finished but it’s rising.

  61. Tubabu on November 16, 2009 at 8:46 am

    Ah ah Mike, i thank you for this super blog post. I just agree with lpcrazygirl, 4-5 min per song, it’s just awesome. I can’t wait of course but if you take your time, it could be better and better. Enjoy your art. See you soon in France =)
    PS : It is raining here in my Burgundy but this news brings a bit of sun;)

  62. lpcrazygirl on November 16, 2009 at 8:10 am

    I’m so excited. 4- 5 minutes per song is great ๐Ÿ™‚
    Your album will be awesome as usual and I hope that you Mike will rap a little bit more than on Minutes to Midnight.
    Can you tell us something about it? Are you gonna rap a bit more?

  71. Eddie on November 16, 2009 at 2:56 am

    WOW! I just woke up. I was dreaming you Mike playing songs in your studio, and now I enter MS.com and I see new album updates… This is perfect! Thanks for the info Mike!!! We can’t wait for the new album! We all hope the release of the new album will be at May – June (maximum). And we also can’t wait for LP’s new World Tour!!!! We will chat with Rob at Wednesday, so maybe we will learn more about LP’s new work! I am really excited of this “but I would bet that the average song length on these is around the 4-5 minute mark” This is VERY interesting!!! Can’t wait man!! Thank you again for the update!!! Take care!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  72. Rotten on November 16, 2009 at 2:39 am

    Couldn’t you give us more info on your upcoming album please? Like how it’s gonna sound, mainly hip hop or rock? Is it gonna be experimental as MTM was? Anyway, i’m confident about the quality since you never disappointed us but i’m afraid you’ll be producing an album just because you have to, and -this is a personal opinion-, try not to make music which is too conventional (actually, this is the only critic I could do to MTM) don’t forget your roots! A sound is never exhausted, Only its authors are :p good luck!

  73. Lyra on November 16, 2009 at 2:36 am

    …sweet….and it’s 4~5 minutes…..aww~~~…so excited..!!….xoxo….

  74. ShadowThanatos on November 16, 2009 at 2:31 am

    More rapping, more screaming, more solo-ing, more meaningful, and the most important is…more LINKIN PARK
    I wonder which songs will be your next single from this new album……

  75. girlaloud on November 16, 2009 at 2:31 am

    Now I understand why you sound so busy, it seems you’re trying to to sort and analyze a lot of songs and I think with this post youโ€™ve explained to us very clear that youโ€˜ve completed that mission .. well .. congrat ๐Ÿ™‚ โ€ฆ i’m sure Now you’re very happy with the results !! ..Ok .. canโ€™t wait for the new album .. My best wishes .. thank’s for the update !

    Note : I predict there will be no chaos, because youโ€™ve decide to finish , so it seems there’s nothing to worry about .. I believe The album would be good as we expected !!

  76. Rex on November 16, 2009 at 2:29 am

    sweet. sounds very mysterious and unpredictable, cant wait to be blown away.

  77. ACDalgaard on November 16, 2009 at 1:29 am

    It is hard waiting for the next album. I know it will be fantastic and the best yet. You guy don’t know any other way. It seems to take forever when it is the fans that are waiting. Just know I can hardly wait for the album and the tour. Be safe, have fun, see you on the road ( tour)…….

  91. ShadowerLiltani on November 15, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    Rob popped all the balloons, didn’t he? But getting back to business, thanks so much for the updates. I was actually wondering about the album recently. More importantly, how’s it looking as far as the album art is concerned? Are you planning on doing either cover art, or a project like the Meteora mural, or another piece by you and Joe that’s a little different? If there is any prograss in that area, is it something you are allowed to share?

  92. TheTechnique on November 15, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    4-5 min huh? Nice
    I listen to a lot of prog metal, so I’m use to hearing stuff 7min+
    get brad to bust out an epic solo on one of the new tracks~!!

  107. LpOrcaPrincess on November 15, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    its nice to know how many songs are created when you guys get together. Cosidering your creativity and the ongoing obstacles which can get in the way. Get those five finished and then try and pick your best ones. you need to make this album shine! and knowing you guys your going to give us something exceptional.

  113. mraznxcrazyxboi on November 15, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    o man mike thats awesome!~ can’t wait for the album to drop next year!

  114. soyuneik on November 15, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    Doppee. I can’t wait to hear them. :C) I like the way you make it sound so easy. ใ— ใฎ ใ ใ‚›….. If I found the right key for the Dakuten, then that should say your last name. (Shi-No-Da) or maybe it should be ใ—ใ‚“ใŠใ ใ‚› (Shi -n-o-da)?ใ€€Rah, I’ll get there.
    (I started teaching myself hiragana.) Speaking of five finished songs… I need to go back and lose my mind on the next few. I have a few secret things going on and some not so secret things (but its not like anyone is paying attention so I can still surprise.) Or they ARE paying attention and I don’t know it… Either way, I’m surprising someone dammit. Good luck on the batch.

  115. DemonNoir99 on November 15, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    Nice …

  116. LPHooligan on November 15, 2009 at 6:37 pm

    Cool Studio .. where the hell is everybody by the way LOL ..

  117. freak_yellow on November 15, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    good stuff

  119. BlackHawk on November 15, 2009 at 6:00 pm

  120. jeffryLP on November 15, 2009 at 5:57 pm

  121. pepper on November 15, 2009 at 5:55 pm

    THANK YOU for the album update Mike!! We kept tweeting Phi for an update, but no go. I guess you are the better man =P (haha as if there was any doubt) Lol I’m so excited to hear about the long songs and that you guys are going through your usual thorough process for selecting the songs for the album. Stay focused and keep rocking on my brothers, I’m so stoked for this album and what 2010 holds for LP!

    -Pepper

  122. phill715 on November 15, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    Awesome. Thank you lpassociationderek for an awesome comment. I completely agree, stay focused on what you guys think is right, not warner.

  123. LPAssociationDerek on November 15, 2009 at 5:13 pm

    Glad to hear the songs are turning out longer then they have in the past. Just remember though to make the record you guys want to make. Don’t listen to Warner if they tell you that you don’t have a “single”, or if they want you to make the record more like your past records. To us fans it’s more important that you have a record that represents you guys accurately as a band, and showcases your true talents. Anything else (catchyness, lead off singles, mainstream appeal) is meaningless to us. We just want to hear you guys having fun and being creative.

  124. Christos_17 on November 15, 2009 at 5:10 pm

    Thanks for the update, Mike. I’m so glad to hear that you are making longer songs than usual. As a big Metallica fan who are known for their long songs, I’ve become accustomed to it and these 3 minute tracks just don’t cut it for me anymore. ๐Ÿ˜›

  125. aLLey_beNNoda on November 15, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    COOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! want to hear ur new record SOON!!!

  126. BlueSteal on November 15, 2009 at 5:02 pm

    4 to 5 min long! woow sounds like the best LP record to date!I cant wait, take your time guys

  127. minuteforce on November 15, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    Is the band working at NRG at the moment?

  128. KATHYxx on November 15, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    nifty thrifty.

    thank you for the update, Mike. m/

  129. STINGER_LP on November 15, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    I think the best part if that you guys are enjoying what you are doing because that way you get the feeling mixed with the music and that makes a great song. (plus you have fun)

  134. SoulShadow on November 15, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Really can’t wait for the new album. I love the music you guys make. I’ve been a huge fan of you guys since the 5th grade. I know it might be hard to do but I think you guys should upload more videos of you in the studio. It would be really cool to include teaser material from the album.

  135. MTluvsCHAZY on November 15, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    You’re exciting us so! So glad to hear this…we can’t wait!
