Mike Shinoda Unveils 'Ghosts' Video


Linkin Park vocalist, Mike Shinoda has released the music video for his single "Ghosts." Produced and directed by Shinoda, the video features "Boris & Miss Oatmeal," a pair of sock-puppets with drawn-on eyes and mouths, lip-syncing to Shinoda's vocals.

The video opens with a clip of Shinoda seated in his home studio, reflecting on the day-to-day experiences of coming to terms with the loss of former bandmate and close friend, Chester Bennington. "I've had enough hard days. It's like if I wake up and I feel good, I shouldn't feel guilty about having fun, you know," he states.

The song will be featured on Shinoda's upcoming solo-album Post Traumatic, which is set for release on June 15.

"I had been writing these songs and they were both helping me navigate both emotionally and logically. There wasn't going to be any clear answers...It's a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness," said Shinoda, speaking about producing the album as a journey towards healing, in his ongoing battle with grief. "If people have been through something similar, I hope they feel less alone. If they haven't been through this, I hope they feel grateful."

The 16-track album will feature several guests, including Machine Gun Kelly, Blackbear and Deftones' Chino Moreno.
