The album features genre-melding singles “Crossing a Line” and “Make It Up As I Go” feat. K.Flay, along with a host of eclectic cameos from Blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly, Chino Moreno, and grandson.

The art will make its world premiere at the Pop Art Photo Show. Shinoda will attend the Opening Night Premiere of the Pop Art Photo Show on September 27th and will talk about his art.
“Although visual art always plays a role in every music release I’m involved with, it’s also the thing I turn to when I need to relax, when I need to think, or when I need another outlet to express myself outside of music,” says Shinoda. “I’m excited to be a part of the Pop Art Photo Show.”
“We are thrilled to have Mike Shinoda join us at the Pop Art Photo Show,” said Pierre Vudrag, Founder of Limited Runs. “Not only is Mike an incredibly talented musician and songwriter, he is a phenomenal illustrator and designer who has created a wealth of album art, band merchandise and other marketing materials.“
Shinoda’s work will join impressive collections of 70+ years of pop culture influenced expression. Pop Art Photo Show will showcase a wide range of rare and vintage art, photography, and posters featuring movies, music, celebrity, fashion, and more. Pop Art Photo Show offers everyone from car enthusiasts, classic movie lovers, and music aficionados, a space to explore and purchase their favorite rare and vintage art.

About Mike Shinoda
Mike Shinoda is a songwriter, performer, record producer, film composer and visual artist. He is best known as co-lead vocalist for multi-platinum Grammy-Award winning rock band, Linkin Park, which has sold over 55 million albums worldwide and commanded a massive fan following, holding the title as the most-liked band on Facebook and amassing over 5.5 billion YouTube views. Shinoda is a founding member of the group, which achieved the best-selling debut of this century with their Diamond-certified album, Hybrid Theory, selling over 10 million copies in the US alone. Collectively, they sold out stadiums around the globe and earned a multitude of accolades including 2 Grammy Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 4 MTV VMA Awards, 10 MTV Europe Music Awards, 3 World Music Awards, and most recently, “Rock Album of the Year” at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards for their seventh studio album, One More Light. In 2005, Shinoda launched his first solo project, Fort Minor, releasing The Rising Tied to critical acclaim, with the single “Where’d You Go,” which reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and accumulated nearly 10 million YouTube views to date. In the months since the passing of Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington, Shinoda has immersed himself in art as a way of processing his grief. The result is his critically acclaimed full-length solo album, Post Traumatic, a transparent and intensely personal record that is accompanied by visuals that Shinoda filmed, painted and edited himself. The new album includes 16 tracks, including the three songs from the Post Traumatic EP, released earlier this year to an overwhelmingly positive response from The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard and more.
