Listen now: Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda releases three-song “Post Traumatic” EP
ByLinkin Park's Mike Shinoda has released his first official batch of new music following the death of his band mate and friend Chester Bennington last July. The three-song EP, titled Post Traumatic, is streaming now at MikeShinoda.com. "The past six months have been a roller coaster," says Shinoda in a statement. "Amidst the chaos, I've started to feel an intense gratitude -- for your tributes and messages of support, for the career you have allowed me to have, and for the simple opportunity to create." "Today, I'm sharing three songs I wrote and produced, with visuals that I filmed, painted, and edited myself," he continues. "At its core, grief is a personal, intimate experience. As such, this is not Linkin Park, nor is it Fort Minor -- it's just me." The songs are titled "Place to Start," "Over Again" and "Watching As I Fall." The EP does not include the song "Looking for an Answer," which Shinoda debuted at Linkin Park's Bennington memorial show last October. "Art has always been the place I go when I need to sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead," Shinoda says. "I don't know where this path goes, but I'm grateful I get to share it with you." Here's the Post Traumatic track list: "Place to Start" "Over Again" "Watching As I Fall" Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
