The CD for Linkin Park Underground XIII is released on November 18, 2013, after the launch on the Linkin Park Underground official website. It was posted by Linkin Park on Facebook on November 14, alongside the I'll Be Gone demo, with its working title entitled as "Primo", being released for a preview. The album presentation contains a collection of demos, unreleased tracks, and 2 additional tracks created by the LPU fan club members and produced by Linkin Park. During the LPU Sessions in 2013, the album includes two additional tracks recorded by two LPU fan club members at NRG Studios. This includes the instrumental track called "Truth Inside a Lie" by Ryan Giles as the 11th track; it also includes "Change" by Beta State, a four-piece rock band from and formed in San Francisco, which is featured on the LP Underground XIII album, listed as the 12th and final track, which is the closing track to the end of the album.


The first 10 tracks included in the EP are demos of the unreleased songs included in the previous studio albums by Linkin Park, such as Meteora (2003), Minutes to Midnight (2007) and Living Things (2012), with 2 additional tracks created by the LPU fan club members, such as Ryan Giles and Beta State. The LPU Session songs were recorded and produced by Linkin Park. The album includes the demos of the songs like "Lost in the Echo" and "Until It Breaks" from their studio album Living Things and a demo of "Somewhere I Belong" from Meteora. "Universe" is the unreleased 2006 demo recorded for "Resurrection", a song by Kenna featuring Lupe Fiasco. The track "Primo" was released on November 14 as a preview of the album with its entirety of playing the song on SoundCloud.
