LINKIN PARK: New Linkin Park Album Details, “A Thousand Suns”

LINKIN PARK has announced a September 14th release date for their new album A Thousand Suns. The album is co-produced by Rick Rubin and LINKIN PARK vocalist Mike Shinoda, who last joined forces to produce LINKIN PARK?s 2007 release, Minutes To Midnight. The band also announced that the first single from the new album will be “The Catalyst,” which debuts on radio worldwide on August 2 and willalso be featured on the band?s MySpace profile:

Prior to the song?s release, the band and MySpace are teaming up for ?Linkin Park, Featuring You,? a unique promotion that gives fans a first-of-its-kind opportunity to collaborate with LINKIN PARK to produce their own song based on some of the tracks from the forthcoming single.

A winner will be chosen by LINKIN PARK and their submission will either be included on the band’s new album or the winner will be invited to perform with the band on a song on the upcoming record.

Beginning tomorrow, July 9th, fans can go to to download audio stems from “The Catalyst.”  Fans will be encouraged to adjust the stems and also record and produce their own additional tracks. Fans can use their own music production software to create their song and then upload it to the band via their MySpace page.
