Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Shares Two New Songs ‘Prove You Wrong,’ ‘What The Words Meant’

Earlier today, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda shared two new songs, “Prove You Wrong” and “What the Words Meant.” The songs appear on the new deluxe edition of Shinoda’s debut solo LP, Post Traumatic, out now. Listen to the tracks below.

Last year, Shinoda released his debut album almost a year after the death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Shinoda told how the album helped him deal with Bennington’s suicide.

“When I wrote some of that stuff, I was like, ‘Oh, should I say that? Does that sound weird?’” Shinoda said. “But I think it would be true for anybody in this situation. When you go through a difficult situation, sometimes you question stuff you don’t need to question. And I did. At a certain point, I was afraid just to write a song or record something, which is natural.”
