Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has released a new solo track, ‘About You’, taken from his upcoming debut solo album, ‘Post Traumatic’.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Shinoda explained how the song related to the death of bandmate Chester Bennington, and his attempts to write new songs that moved away from that topic.

“A lot of the early stuff on this album was about what had happened and Chester and all that, and then I started trying to write some songs that weren’t about Chester and weren’t about that whole thing,” he said. “I realised people would still hear them as if they were about him. It was like, ‘Man, even when I try to make a song that’s not about him, it still feels like it’s about him'”.
