Mike Shinoda spoke at the Style Studio during this year's Grammys, and gave fans a hint about what to expect for the new disc: "Um, before summer. We are... We had narrowed it down to about sixteen to eighteen songs, and we are in the mixing stage right now. We're still trying to tighten a few things up, musically, and we're mixing some songs." Mike also enjoyed the experience itself, which, he remarks, helps him stay in touch with old friends: "I come through... I think I've come through every year for the last few years. It's cool. It's also... I always run into friends that I haven't seen in a while every time I come to these things. I just caught Black Thought (from The Roots) and some friends that work for some of the companies. It's always good to hang out for a second." The band has yet to publicly announce a release date.
