(Gibson) The guys in Linkin Park are pretty far along in the writing process for their new album. Producer Rick Rubin recently gave an update on the band's progress on their follow-up to 2010's A Thousand Suns.
"Typically we'll have a once a week meeting to go listen to the songs that they're coming up with and talk about them," Rubin told Billboard.com. "For so early in the project, they are much further along than they have been on the last two albums we did.
"On A Thousand Suns there were still a lot of irons in the fire. We knew, 'OK, we can't do this forever. Let's leave this batch and we'll come back and address it when we start up again.'" more on this story
