Mike Shinoda, the co-lead singer of Linkin Park, has released his deeply personal album "Post Traumatic" via his record label Warner Bros. Records.
It opens on an unflinching note with "Place To Start," and it is followed by the stirring "Over Again," as well as the mid-tempo "Watching As I Fall."
Equally impressive are "Make It Up As I Go," which features the crisp vocals of K.Flay and "Lift Off," his soothing collaboration with Chino Moreno and Machine Gun Kelly, which allows the lyrics to speak for themselves. He tackles serious subject matter such as living with loss.
In "Running From My Shadow," Shinoda collaborates with grandson, and this 16-track collection closes with the vivacious "World’s On Fire" and on a haunting note with "Can’t Hear You Now."
On October 13, Mike Shinoda will be performing his very first solo tour at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in the Seaport District of New York City.
