The new track follows last month's reveal of “About You,” featuring blackbear, both due to appear on the Post Traumatic LP. (Shinoda shared a preview of the upcoming work in the form of the Post Traumatic EP this January).
At the artist's first solo festival gig for KROQ's annual Weenie Roast on May 12, Shinoda gave the live treatment to various Post Traumatic tunes, as well as doing a somber, audience-involved version of Linkin Park's “In The End.”
Shinoda's kept the music flowing since shortly after the tragic death of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, who died by suicide last year at the age of 41. In a recent interview with New York mag's Vulture, the musician confessed he's “unable to say what will happen” with Linkin Park in the future.
“There's really just no answer,” Shinoda said of any current Park plans. “And it's funny because if I even say anything about the band's future, that becomes the headline, which is stupid because the answer is there is no answer.”
The musician shared the tracklist for the upcoming Post Traumatic release last week, indicating album collaborations with K.Flay, Machine Gun Kelly and Deftones' Chino Moreno, in addition to the cuts with grandson and blackbear.
