Mike Shinoda has been making music away from the Linkin Park brand for years now — most specifically the Fort Minor rap project which was highly appreciated by listeners. Fans were excited when he formally announced last month that he will release his debut solo album Post Traumatic on June 15 via Warner Bros. Records.
The talented producer/singer/rapper released the first single ‘Crossing A Line‘ a few weeks ago and is now following that up with the new single ‘About You’ featuring blackbear. The Florida musician has worked with Linkin Park in the past — blackbear co-produced the track ‘Sorry For Now’ from Linkin Park’s latest album One More Light.
