The Linkin Park singer wants another voice on "Open Door."
Mike Shinoda needs your help. The Linkin Park singer and solo star went on Instgram Live on Tuesday (March 17) to share a 30-minute video of his recording session for the new song "Open Door."
Like so many musicians who've been forced to reimagine their careers in light of the COVID-19 pandemic as they pull back from touring and album promotion and pivot to live-cast concerts and online fan events for a nation on virtual lockdown during this social distancing period, Shinoda offered his fans a unique glimpse at the songwriting process.
But he isn't just giving his followers a sneak listen to the in-process tune, he's also asking them to help finish it. "They tell you that should quit trying/ You are too small/ That you were too young/ They tell you that chance's too slim/ The world is too big," he sings on the uplifting, thumping track that encourages everyone to never give up, never give in.
