Linkin Park Taking Different Approach On New Album

(Classic Rock) Linkin Park say they are taking a new approach to writing their upcoming seventh album. They entered the studio towards the end of last year to begin work on the follow-up to 2014's The Hunting Party, and this time they say they have written lyrics before music for the first time.

It was an idea their long-time producer Rick Rubin urged them to investigate, and so far it's paying off. Singer Mike Shinoda tells Billboard: "The thing that's notable to me is that we're approaching the process backwards, for us.

"Usually the music comes first and the words come second, even if it's 30 minutes apart that's usually what happens - the music inspires the words. And in this case it's mostly the words and melodies first, no track." Read more here.
