It's only been a few weeks since Mike Shinoda released his instrumental album Dropped Frames Vol. 1, but the Linkin Park co-founder is keeping his fans pleased by sharing the second volume on Friday (July 31). He'll also be hosting an album release party during his daily Twitch livestream, which is where the tracks that comprise these projects were made.
Shinoda announced the event, along with the album's tracklist, on Instagram Thursday (July 30).
"Tracklist for 'Dropped Frames Vol 2.' Album comes out this Friday!" he wrote alongside the album art. "Once you listen to the tracks, join the album release party on Friday @ 10am PST on Twitch."

“We’ve done our best to go to a lot of people who are family, in a sense, and say, ‘What do you think we should do? What would be a good celebration of Hybrid Theory?’ and try our best to do a bunch of those ideas,” he revealed. “The problem for me is that if I’m not allowed to divulge information because I want it to be a surprise.”
Though he's being mum on the details, it's exciting to know an anniversary celebration is in the works. Shinoda also gave a shout out to fans for their creative ideas. “The Linkin Park fanbase is always one of the most creative and active fanbases out there,” he said. “The creative fanbase starts jumping out and imagining things. They come up with their own great ideas — and then once in a while those great ideas are better than our ideas!”
