Linkin Park say honesty is a big theme on their upcoming album

Linkin Park are getting closer to releasing new music, and they’re giving fans a glimpse into the music-making process. The band posted an update on the progress of their upcoming, seventh studio album in the form of a video clip. In the footage, the members of Linkin Park are pictured in the recording studio, talking about how honesty is a motif that keeps popping up in their new music.

“I think it’s a personal record,” guitarist Brad Delson said. “I don’t think it’s about politics, it’s not about the world outside, a lot of these songs are personal.”

He added, “I feel like the person singing is speaking directly to me in a revealing way, or the person’s talking to someone that they’re in a relationship with. There’s an intimacy, but it’s not introverted.”

Singer Chester Bennington also stated that the trackss on the album “talk about a frame of thinking.” He added, “…To me…it tells a story, but it’s also revealing as well, in a way. And that feels honest to me… We’re trying to connect people. We’re trying to make a record that has…stellar songs that people want to listen to all the time.”

Linking Park’s upcoming, as-yet-untitled album will mark the band’s follow-up to Linkin Park’s 2014 release, “The Hunting Party,” which brought the band back to the heavier sound of their first album, “Hybrid Theory.”
