Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda appeared on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show "World Record" yesterday (May 24th) to unveil "Running From My Shadow," a new track taken from his forthcoming debut solo album, Post Traumatic.
In conjunction with the premiere, Shinoda did an interview with Lowe about his new music, his struggles with grief following Chester Bennington's death, mental health in the music industry, and more. He also gave an update (or more accurately, non-update) on where Linkin Park plan to go from here, suggesting, intriguingly, that the band's future involves "brunch."
"The fans may not hear about the unsexy versions of it that all five of us are doing, because it might involve brunch," mused Shinoda, going on to hint at potential activity from the band at a later point in time. "It might involve going out to dinner with somebody that no fan has ever really heard of and you just get a little piece of information, you know? That meant something, that was interesting. I will put that over here with the rest of my information, and hopefully, at some point it all adds up to something that's exciting for us and exciting for the fans. When that time comes, we'll talk about it."
