Check the interview for Billboard about new Linkin Park album:

Talking about successor of The Hunting Party, Brad Delson says:

“It’s been a real just organic flow and I’m really excited about the music that’s being created,” Delson said. To which, DJ Joe Hahn added, “We have a mountain of material.”

Second Mike Shinoda the band choice a different approach about new album: “The thing that’s notable to me is that we’re approaching the process backwards, for us,

“Usually the music comes first and the words come second, even if it’s 30 minutes apart that’s usually what happens — the music inspires the words. And in this case it’s mostly the words and melodies first, no track.”

The idea of writing the melodies and lyrics first comes from their past work with longtime producer Rick Rubin, said Delson, noting that no producer is yet confirmed for this album.

“We’ve focused almost exclusively on songwriting, not on sound, not on genre, not on arrangement, on words and melodies,” he continued. “And that is something Rick [Rubin] has always told us to do years past and we never listened because we started always track first. Now we’re writing songs and now we’re just starting to get into the style of that.”

“We’re still in it so it’s still more unconscious than conscious,” he said. “But I feel, on a gut level, that there are very strong consistent themes in what we’re writing. I feel there’s been a thru line emotionally and it’s our job just to channel that and not overthink it.”
