Linkin Park to release ‘A Thousand Suns’ on September 14
HollywoodNews.com: Linkin Park have kept the follow up to their “Minutes to Midnight” album under wraps, but today the band have finally dished the details. The good news is fans won’t have to wait much longer to listen to new music from one of the top rock bands today.
Mike Shinoda wrote the following message on their website:
No puzzles or hidden messages with this one. We’re excited to finally announce that our new album, A THOUSAND SUNS, will be released on September 14th.
The lead single for the album is called “The Catalyst.” It will be released on August 2nd.
Beginning tomorrow, July 9th, we’re teaming up with MySpace and MixParade for “Linkin Park, Featuring You,” a contest which gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to be on our new album. We’ll be giving you some audio from “The Catalyst,” and you get to take it from there; you can remix the parts, write something over them, or mute stuff and write something totally new. We may choose a remix of the song, and put it on the album…or, we may choose an amazing keyboardist, string quartet, guitarist, percussion group, or other musician, and invite them into the studio to play on one of our songs. No matter what instrument you play, you can win. We’re open to anything good. All we ask is that you include any audible portion of any one of our stems in your submission.
Once you submit, the community (that’s you) will vote, and the most popular stuff will rise to the top. Then, my bandmates and I will comb through the submissions, choose one winner, and they will be included on our album, A THOUSAND SUNS. Check out http://www.myspace.com/linkinpark for contest details.
I think I’ve said enough for now. Thanks for your continued support. We’ve got more announcements coming, so keep checking LinkinPark.com for updates.
With new albums from Anberlin and now Linkin Park, it looks like September is going to be a great month.
