    As we all know, Mike Shinoda started streaming on Twitch and YouTube back in March and has kept it going on a daily basis since, rarely missing a stream. On one of his first streams he finished up the demo for Open Door which he released as a download later that day.


    After a couple of months Mike has now decided to compile some of the songs that he worked on into a 12-song album compilation called Dropped Frames, Vol 1. In a statement to Spin.com Mike said:
    On his Instagram Mike had this to say about the album:

    With the announcement of the album Mike decided to release 3 songs, Open Door, Osiris, and Super Galaxtica. Open Door is the finished version of the song with a number of guest vocalists, it's the also the only song on the album that with singing on it. You can listen to all three songs here below.

    Are you looking forward to the album? When do you think Vol. 2 will be released? Come and discuss in our forums.

    This cover is so The Rising Tied-esque. Love it.

    Hit or miss on the music tho. I enjoyed watching him making the songs on stream, but I dont know if I want to buy an album of them.

    But damn, the new Open Doors, Osiris, and SG tracks are pretty fire.

    Instrumental album?

    Can't say I'm looking forward for it judging by Open Doors and the little bit of the streams I checked, but nice to see him having fun making this stuff.

    I think what's worth mentioning is that this is Mike's first independent release under his own Kenji Kobayashi Productions banner and Warner isn't involved which is pretty cool.

    I was already loving the previous version of Open door - but this new one is even better! The new/fan vocals really add something unique to the track.

    Cover art is adorable, I see references to his childhood in the 80s.

    I actually got the text from him hours before he said he was taking questions.

    This was his text to me:

    "Going live, only on Twitch! NEW MUSIC TODAY! Open Door plus two tracks from the NEW ALBUM. Subscriptions and bits have been enabled, join me only on Twitch:

    https://m.community.com/cgOOkwWLJSVh4K32DH

    (stream will be posted to Youtube afterwards)"

    "Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

    Despite me not being a big fan of Open Door, the fan vocals that he brought on really do bring the song to another level.
    I could do with the song just being the chorus repeated. So damn catchy and uplifting. This was a really cool thing that Mike put together, and a great way to spread positivity during such a stressful time
