Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Solo Track For ‘Scream VI’ OST
Linkin Park guitarist Mike Shinoda has revealed that he will have a solo song on the soundtrack of the upcoming movie, Scream VI.
In an interview with KROQ, Shinoda said: “Up until this year, I’ve been doing a lot of writing and producing for other people. And I recently kind of got the bug to do it for myself again. I do have a new song that’s gonna be in the movie Scream. What happened is they had reached out about: ‘Will you help us with music for the movie?’ And in the conversation I played them something and they were like, ‘Oh my god, can we use that?’
“I didn’t plan it – I would never have been like, ‘Oh, we’re gonna put out this big Linkin Park thing and I wanna put my song out right on top of it!’ That’s not good planning for me.
“But it’s great planning for Linkin Park fans, because there’s just more music – so I’ve got stuff I’ve produced that are other people’s songs, I’ve got my own song, and then we’ve got the Linkin Park stuff. And that’s not even everything we’re gonna be doing around this for Linkin Park fans. So it’s a great time to be a Linkin Park fan!”
The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement of Linkin Park’s Metorea reissue, due on on 7 April in multiple formats: Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set, 4LP Deluxe Vinyl Box Set, 3-disc Deluxe CD and digital: all containing a wealth of previously unreleased or rare tracks.
Among the unreleased tracks are several previously unknown to Linkin Park fans, including Lost — a fully realized track from the 2002 album recording sessions featuring stunning vocals from late frontman Chester Bennington.
Shinoda said: “Finding Lost was like finding a favorite photo you had forgotten you’d taken, like it was waiting for the right moment to reveal itself.”
