A couple of weeks ago Mike Shinoda released 'Dropped Frames Vol. 1', a collection of instrumental tracks, apart from 'Open Door', he has created on Twitch throughout this period of lockdown alongside fans.
Well in a new interview with Forbes, Mike has admitted that there is set to be two more releases of the same ilk, and the second one is already done.
Here he is explaining as well as admitting that he wouldn't have considered doing a full album of music like this if it wasn't for the circumstance:
"These albums, Dropped Frames is gonna be the first of at least three. I've got the second one done and the third one is in progress. And I say in progress, basically it's just tightening up and mixing stuff that I made on the stream.
But certainly it's a thing I wouldn't have done unless I was in this situation that I'm in right now. It's also funny cause it's clearly not for everybody. Instrumental music is not your way to the Billboard top five. But anybody who knows my discography knows I've done instrumentals often, on every record, every couple of records there [are] instrumental tracks.
A few different instrumental pieces that have gone to film and TV as well. I feel like there is a poetry to the instrumental that it leaves an openness to interpretation in terms of the content that is a lot of fun. And I haven't ever done that before on a full-length album."
And when will these two new volumes be released?
"I'm trying to get them out a month apart from each other."
So there you go!
We recently caught up with Mike via Video Call to chat Vol.1, 'In The End' and loads more.
