Linkin Park launch contest to give fans a chance to record a song on the band’s upcoming album, ‘LPU13’

Linkin Park are asking their fans to contribute to their upcoming album. Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and company have kicked off a special contest named LPUSessions, in which up-and-coming musicians have the chance to have one of their original songs featured on Linkin Park’s new annual LP Underground fan club exclusive, “LPU13,” set to arrive sometime later this year.

To enter, fans must be members of Linkin Park’s official fan club, LP Underground. The grand prize winner picks up a full trip to Los Angeles to record their original tune with the guys.

“Since our inception, we’ve relied on the input and support of our exceptionally dedicated fan base,” guitarist Brad Delson said in an official statement. “Beyond sharing our music and art with the LP community at large, we relish opportunities to empower our fans to share their many talents with us. The LPU Sessions will allow fans to submit original material with a chance to work hands on with the band in the studio.”

Those who wish to enter the content should upload the audio of their original songs to YouTube and post a link to the track on their LP Underground account. The deadline to submit is Aug. 4. The band will announce the two grand prize winners on Sept. 3. For more information, head to
