John Legend and Juanes perform at detention center, Linkin Park to release new album
John Legend teamed up with Juanes Wednesday (1/20) for a performance near a detention center in rural Eloy, Arizona. The outdoor collaboration occurred to increase awareness about immigration detention.
The visit was part of the #FreeAmerica initiative started by Legend to encourage "change the national conversation about our country's misguided policies and transform America's criminal justice system," according to the initiative's website.
A new album is underway for Linkin Park, according to frontman Mike Shinoda, and it's expected to drop in late 2016.
The alt-metal band won't comment on the the sound of the new collection, but Shinoda did make the following comment to Rolling Stone:
"I've been on a tear in the studio right now with the band. We've been making so much new material. A lot of this stuff is, we're just kind of experimenting a lot with all the different directions the band can go."
