Linkin Park will celebrate two decades of their GRAMMY Award-nominated multiplatinum landmark sophomore LP, Meteora, with Meteora 20th Anniversary Edition, arriving on April 7, 2023. It will be available in various configurations, including a Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set, Deluxe Vinyl Box Set, Deluxe 3-CD, and Digital Download. Pre-order/Pre-save HERE via Warner Records.
The highlight of the collection was unearthed as the band was digging through hard drives for what would become the Meteora 20th Anniversary Edition: a complete and mixed, yet forgotten, song from this era, appropriately entitled “Lost.”
Mike Shinoda says, “Finding this track was like finding a favorite photo you had forgotten you’d taken, like it was waiting for the right moment to reveal itself. For years, fans have been asking us to release something with Chester’s voice, and I’m thrilled we’ve been able to make that happen in such a special way. I think they’re going to be floored when they hear and see all the incredible unreleased songs and video footage in METEORA|20.”
“Lost” harnesses the uncontainable energy of Linkin Park into an anthemic catharsis catapulted by Chester Bennington’s simultaneously vulnerable and vital vocals. Moments of intimacy bleed into an irresistible refrain, backed by a robust riff under the glow of neon keys. Produced and animated by pplpleasr and Maciej Kuciara’s Web3 studio, Shibuya, the accompanying video re-envisions the band’s AMV legacy through a cutting-edge AI lens, featuring AI production by Kaiber.ai. Watch it below.
A must-have for collectors, the Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set boasts six additional unreleased songs, plus demos, b-sides, live shows, and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage on five LPs [Meteora (1 LP), Live in Texas (2 LP) – for the first time on vinyl – , and the previously unreleased Live in Nottingham 2003 (2 LP)], four CDs [Meteora (1 CD), LPU Rarities 2.0 (1 CD), Live Rarities 2003-2004 (1 CD), and Lost Demos (1 CD)], and three DVDs, including four previously unreleased concerts [The Making of Meteora/The Art of Meteora/Work In Progress (1 DVD), Veterans Stadium (2003), Live in Seoul (2003) (1DVD), and Live In Manila (2004), Live in Denver – Projekt Revolution 2004 (1 DVD).
