‘Open Door’, Shop Ticket Snatchers

Mike Shinoda
has shared a music video for his new single ‘Open Door’ –
watch it below.

The new song is taken from the Linkin Park
musician’snew solo project,
‘Dropped Frames Vol.1’
, which is comprised of songs he made
with the help of fans on his Twitch streaming channel.

Released yesterday (July 10), the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Post
Traumatic’ comes as a result of Shinoda’s online activity since
the beginning of the coronavirus-enforced
lockdown.

“The collection of songs is a highlight reel of the tracks I
make on the channel, but a big part of the experience is the stream
itself,†Shinoda explained. “When I start, I usually have very
little idea of where it will go. What comes out is a product of the
viewers’ suggestions, my spur-of-the-moment ideas, and whatever
inexplicable magic is floating in between.â€

Laid over the top of the album’s animated artwork, the video
for ‘Open Door’ illustrates how Shinoda created the song during
his daily Twitch livestreams, and features footage of the fans he
chose to sing on the track.

Describing the overall vibe of ‘Dropped Frames Vol.1’,

Shinoda told NME
: “It’s spontaneous. A lot of the time with
music I feel like I channel what’s happening in the moment. This
stuff sonically comes from when it’s being created. We archived
all of the Twitch episodes on Youtube so you can go back and see
where it came from.â€

He added: “I know that when the Black Lives Matter protests
were starting, the track we made that day was sombre and soulful.
It was sonically appropriate for the kind of day that it was. That
track didn’t make it onto this album, but it will be on a future
volume.â€

Last month saw
Shinoda share his mix of Renforshort’s song ‘I Drive Me
Mad’
.

“The dynamics of the song – the production, her voice, and
the way the song speeds up into the chorus – all those things
felt exciting to me,†Shinoda said of his love for ‘I Drive Me
Mad’.

“I also connected with the lyrics, the idea that you make
yourself a little crazy. I’m pretty sure she’s the first person
I’ve heard use the term ‘pre-traumatic stress!’â€
