Linkin Park's 'challenging' new album

'Numb' rockers Linkin Park have admitted they don't think it matters what the songs on their new album 'A Thousand Suns' sound like as long as the band likes them.

Linkin Park don't care what the tracks on their upcoming album sound like.

The 'Numb' rockers - who teamed up with legendary producer Rick Rubin for their soon to be released album 'A Thousand Suns' - admits their main aim with the new record was to produce songs they like.

Singer Chester Bennington told Rolling Stone magazine: "This time we realised it doesn't matter what the songs sound like. If we like it and it comes from us."

While Chester and fellow frontman Mike Shinoda recently pursued solo projects while the band took a break, he believes the short hiatus did the group good.

He told Rolling Stone: "At this point we're writing such great music that I almost want to go do 50 shows around the world and then get right back into making another record. Once the ball starts rolling, it's all I want. It's like a drug."

Meanwhile, vocalist Mike revealed he thinks the new album - which is to be released in early September - has allowed the band to do something "a little more challenging".

He said: "We've got this opportunity to take bigger chances with our records and do something a little more challenging. The band is making music from a pure place."
