Linkin Park is commemorating the 20th anniversary of their second major studio album, Meteora, with a new animated music video for the release’s special single, “Lost,” which features vocals from the band’s late frontman, Chester Bennington.
Meteora, released in March 2003, was the group’s second major album after Hybrid Theory, and it was here that fans got to witness even more of the group’s individuality. It was also the album in which the group began to connect with anime lovers through a couple of their videos.
Linkin Park has always been a legend in the anime community. They’ve released numerous songs which are animated by famous studios like Studio Gonzo. Linkin Park songs have also been associated with much famous anime (thanks to fan-crafted videos!), and now, they’re back with “Lost” for their 20th Anniversary!
Check out their music video below:
Chester Bennington died in 2017 at the age of 42, yet his voice lives on in the song “Lost,” which Linkin Park recorded during the development of Meteora but never included on the album. Meteora’s 20th Anniversary Edition will be released in its entirety on April 7th. Celebrating the original album with additional material like unreleased music, demos, live events, and more, it will undoubtedly be a welcome return for fans who have been missing Bennington since his departure.
The “Lost” music video is more of an AI-created creation. The music video includes a character from Shibuya’s NFT-driven series, White Rabbit, and was produced and animated by Emily “pplpleasr” Yang and Maciej Kuciara’s Web3 company, Shibuya, with AI Production help from studio Kaiber. It’s a welcome return by any standard, given that fans haven’t heard much from Linkin Park since the band’s tragic demise.
