Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda has released a music video for the song “About You”, taken from his upcoming solo album “Post Traumatic”. The track is a collaboration with producer blackbear, and the accompanying clip was directed by Shinoda. Shinoda spoke about the songwriting process for “Post Traumatic”, which is due on June 15. He explained: “It started in a really dark place. In the beginning, I wasn’t leaving my house. It felt very claustrophobic, having lost one of my closest friends and collaborators.” Dealing with his own grief over Chester Bennington‘s suicide last summer, saying: “I had terrible days, and now I have less bad days. And eventually, I will find a new ‘normal,’ like a new stasis.” Shinoda will make his first solo appearance since Bennington’s death at this spring’s Identity LA Festival in downtown Los Angeles on May 12.
