  1. We got a new #ShinodaProduceMe release for this October: "Teary Eyed" by Emma McGann will be released on October 22nd! She wrote on Instagram: "NEW MUSIC INCOMING 🤘🏻 ‘Teary Eyed’ is out on Oct 22nd!💧 PRE-SAVE it today via the link in my bio. Got some cool goodies for you to win when you pre-save too. 👏🏻 This song means so much to me and I can’t wait to finally get it out there. Produced by the awesome @m_shinoda for his #ShinodaProduceMe project on @twitch. What a legend 🙌🏻 This is my first release back after 18 months since the last one... so the excitement is real!" Mike produced it live on Twitch on March 18th, and March 19th earlier this year. Spotify Pre-Save available here.
  2. Very old post, I know. But it's been three years since that night and I just wanted to read this again, with this being the most detailed description I did since I wrote it some days after the show. I've also made a video with different clips and I wanted to share it here!
  3. Paigambar announced on his Instagram account that he will release "Everybody Here" on September 16th! "Everybody Here (Produced by Mike Shinoda @m_shinoda) Dropping on all music streaming platforms (+ music video) September 16th. Took me longer than I hoped. But here we are. I’m very excited to share this with everyone. Save the date. 16/09/21. Everybody Here. Let’s go." Mike produced the song live on Twitch on February 26th, as part of his #ShinodaProduceMe initiative.
  4. SpnR, the duo formed by Samantha Ronson and Pete Nappi, who co-wrote Happy Endings with Mike Shinoda and Upsahl, just released a new remix of the song! You can listen to it on their SoundCloud account:
  5. Here's a new release that involves Mike Shinoda! "The Feel" by Kid Brunswick will be out on July 9, 2021. Mike co-wrote the song along with Bambie Thug, Cassyette, Harry James (Kid Brunswick), Jacob Manson, Josh McClorey, and Pete Robertson. He came to know Kid Brunswick during a radio interview with Jack Saunders, on April 23rd. They listened and commented together new releases from different artists. Mike was impressed by his song "Bipolar Rhapsody" and talked about the #ShinodaProduceMe initiative, in the hope he would send something for him to produce. That didn't happen as part of the Twitch series but they still managed to collaborate. Kid Brunswick has a mixtape called "XFOREVER" that will be out on July 30th, but it's unknown if Mike worked on more tracks. EDIT: On July 29th, Mike himself confirmed that he worked on two songs on the mixtape, writing on his Instagram story: "I helped out with 2 songs on the new release -out tonight-".
  6. "What Is Yours" by Pealeaf will be released on July 16, 2021, as she announced on Instagram: "Sneak peek of my photoshoot for my new track “What Is Yours” produced by @m_shinoda dropping Jul. 16th!!!" Mike produced it live on Twitch, as part of his #ShinodaProduceMe initiative, on April 13th and 14th. Pre-order it on Spotify here.
  7. We have the first #ShinodaProduceMe track scheduled to be released on July! Every Rose announced on Twitter that his track "Objects In View" will be out this Friday, on July 9th! Mike produced it live on Twitch on April 15th and 16th. Pre-save it on Spotify here.
  8. Yeah, the original writer Sam Champagne is also credited for backing vocals!
  9. A new instrumental track by Mike Shinoda, called "Uproar", is now available on Audius. Mike produced the track live on Twitch today, deciding right at the beginning of the stream that the final result would have been uploaded on Audius. He already used this platform for another song, "Golden Falcon", for which he also released stems to let fans remix it. You can read more about it in our previous thread. Same thing with "Uproar": other than the full track, three stems are available for free download. "I made a new (rock?) instrumental today on Twitch, and just posted it to @audiusmusic // open the app and search my name, you’ll find it. I also uploaded the stems so you can remix it… #audius #remix #shinodaproduceme #uproar #linkinpark #fortminor" Listen to "Uproar" here: https://audius.co/mikeshinoda/uproar-438895
  10. "Crazy" by Amber Lee is out today! The song was written by Sam Champagne, who originally submitted a version with her vocals for the #ShinodaProduceMe initiative. She later gave it to Amber Lee after Mike suggested to find a better performer. He produced it live on Twitch on February 12th and February 17th.
  11. Read a new interview by Mike Shinoda who talks with Rolling Stone about technology, Artificial Intelligence, and the future of music. Tell me about how, and why, you made the leap from music to the business of music. "Every album — each time we [Linkin Park] went in to record — there was new technology that allowed us to do new things. Every time we launched a record, there were new tools. New software we could use to have fun with our fans. On one album, A Thousand Suns, we put out stems of music before the fans had even heard the song, allowed fans to remix the song they’d never heard, and put the winner on our album. We did a sandbox video-game video for “Guilty All the Same” off of our Hunting Party album. For “Lost in the Echo,” we made a video which scraped your Facebook information — people didn’t even know how much personal data had been obtained by Facebook — and when you watched it, your personal photos and stuff from your life and history would show up in the video. People were like, “what the hell’s going on here?” It always felt natural for me to go deeper into technologies and get closer to founders of companies that I thought were doing cool things. I started talking to a lot of companies that make the software we use. I was able to do everything from being a part of Spotify’s entry into the U.S. to investing to being involved in Y Combinator and Techstars. It’s something I”m passionate about, and I feel I learn a lot just being in the mix." So what are some technological shifts you see happening in music’s future? "I think there’s a shift happening from large groups to smaller scale. We’re already prioritizing a more direct and focused relationship in a fanbase, where it’s more about closer connection over quantity. People are overloaded with the pressures and annoyances of the current version of social media. We’re tired of it. I think we’re headed deeper into tribalism. For a long time we’ve been taught that more followers and likes is better. But maybe we’ll start to move away from that. Friends of mine are congregating on messaging apps like DM, WhatsApp, Telegram, instead of Twitter. I have friends who put together weekly Zooms where anyone that is a friend of friend can join. And that’s one reason Clubhouse is becoming popular, because the pressure of sitting in front of your entire follower base and saying something, all of those people chattering… it’s a very annoying way to live. Even our best efforts to just say “Hey I care about this thing I saw on the news!” gets mired in bullshit very quickly. And I think we’re all so sick of it." Is a small, passionate fanbase enough to make a living, though? A major criticism of streaming services right now, for example, is that their business models are a bad deal for anyone but the biggest artists. "I think you pointed at more than one issue. The first thing is about impatience, and the time and effort and focus it takes to hone your craft and get really good at it. I realize everybody wants everything to work the first time and to be famous right away, but that’s not realistic. My daughter said “I love acting and I want to be an actor,” and I said, “Well that’s great,” because the focus isn’t “I want to be in a movie” or “I want people to be watching me.” The focus is “How do I get really good at my craft.” The second thing: building momentum in an ecosystem. If you’re talented and you’ve put the time in, you’ll be prepared when something starts to happen. You’ll also have the information you need — marketing, visual art, finding the right partners, friendships with folks who work together in a communal style. That points back to the tribalism. It’s a rising-tide-lifts-all-boats mentality. And by keeping it insulated, and you’re a team now, a collective rather than a person off in the seas of music by yourself. Also, I think one thing I expect to continue is that software is gonna do even more jobs that people used to do. I’m not saying all our songs are going to be created entirely by AI, but I do think jobs like engineering and mixing and mastering will be fewer and far between. Today, you can pop a plug-in in your vocal track and it will analyze it and choose settings, reverb, compression, to make it sound great. That will just continue to get better. You can pop plugins in something and it will get your album ready without the help of a human to do it. AI for example is already writing compelling music. I’m working with a company called Authentic Artists making spectacular virtual artists where the music gets made from scratch in real-time. The songs it’s outputting, generated in seconds, already sound like something it took a human weeks or months to do. To be clear, I don’t think humans are gonna be driven out of music by the robots. I just think the human artists will make decisions about what sounds best to them by using software. And just like the reliance on a professional recording studio has become less important to make a great selling song, the reliance on people associated with those environments is going to become less important."
