Linkin Park’s new album drops on June 26
Linkin Park’s new album, “Living Things,” doesn’t drop until this coming Tuesday (June 26), but the guys are going easy on fans and letting them hear the whole album right now. Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and the crew posted “Burn It Down” and “Lies Greed Misery” a few weeks ago, and now, the band have posted a stream of every track from “Living Things” on iTunes, where fans can stream the entire album until its release date on Tuesday.
Linkin Park will also give fans a chance to hear the tracks from the upcoming set live during their upcoming shows in select movie theaters nationwide of their concert film, “Linkin Park One Night Concert Event: Recorded Live in Berlin.” The movie will play this Monday (June 25), the day before the album reaches stores, starting at 7:30 p.m. in each time zone. Tickets for the movie are on sale now at participating theater box offices and via the Fathom Events website.
As for why Linkin Park chose “Living Things” as the title for the new album, Mike Shinoda recently told NME the meaning has to do with the band’s relationship with their fans. “We chose the album title ‘Living Things’ because it’s more of a record about people,” Shinoda said. “It’s more about personal interactions. On the last few records we’ve had an interest in global issues and social issues and those things are still around, there are certainly traces of them, but this record is far more personal.” (Photo credit: Anne Erickson.)
