It was so awesome! Thank you for listening Living Things with us and for making June 26th even more special with this twitter listening party!

Our 5th studio album, LIVING THINGS, comes out in the U.S. tomorrow.  Elsewhere in the world, it has already arrived.  We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who is listening, however you’re doing it.  For those who took the Release Day Challenge, we salute you.

Tomorrow, I will be doing a Twitter release day listening party at 1pm PST.  At that time, we’re all going to hit “play” and listen together, worldwide.  Feel free to upload photos and and videos before and during, to show how you got the album, how you’re listening, and who’s there.  Special thanks to @AdieK84 and for helping pick the time and getting people organized.  Find me on Twitter here: @m_shinoda
