    In what may be the most exciting news concerning Linkin Park as of late, legendary producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash) has been named as the official producer of the new Linkin Park record.

    In a recent newsletter from Joe:

    "We wanted to step it up as far as working with a producer and really try to create an atmosphere that will challenge us in different ways. We chose Rick Rubin because his credits alone speak a lot about his ability and his open-mindedness as a producer, working on everything from the old Def Jam, Beastie Boys and Run DMC, to Slayer, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I think the common denominator with all these groups is that they create great music through the years that has stood the test of time."

    This is perhaps the huge announcement that Mike posted about on the Linkin Park Underground a few weeks ago. We will be sure to update you with more information as it becomes available.

    Rubin will be co-producing the album along with bandmember Mike Shinoda, if what Billboard announced still holds true.

    Thanks to Dedicated and Andrea for the news!

    What we are going to see could be one of the greatest albums ever put together... Linkin Park has such amazing raw talent, put that with the right producer and we have something amazing.

    I'm stoked.

    This is awsome news. I think with Rick comming in, and him and Mike putting their heads together (if Mike Co-Producing is in fact true) this album will seriously kick some major ass.

    Now I'm gonna put in Hybrid Theory :)

    Yah this gives me really high hopes for the new album. Best news surrounding Linkin Park in a long time. I kinda hoped that Lp would choose Rubin as a producer for their new album but I didn't think it would ever become a reality. But I must say going from Gilmour to Rubin is like trading a bench player for Michael Jordan.

    I can't wait to hear what they come up with! Rick has made some great records, so this should be big, it will be the new LP sound.

    With Rick producing, it will probably turn out pretty crazy and cool.

    This is fantastic, I love how Joe says "The first two albums were kinda connected" (or something along those lines). This is a really good step towards providing some fresh material. I cant wait!
