Linkin Park Drop Previously Unreleased Song, “She Couldn’t”
Linkin Park have been teasing a top-secret project of late, and that project is no longer top-secret: the band have announced that it’s a 20th anniversary reissue of their breakthrough album, Hybrid Theory.
While reissues typically don’t come with much excitement beyond superfans and collectors, this one takes on extra significance in light of Chester Bennington’s death just over three years ago. And what’s more, the band has unveiled a previously unreleased track called “She Couldn’t” from the album’s original recording sessions that’ll be included.
The band comments:
“It’s incredible to think it’s been 20 years since Hybrid Theory was released,” say the band. “All gratitude to our fans who made this epic journey we started 20 years ago possible. We dedicate our music to you. We rededicate our Hybrid Theory to you.”
Hybrid Theory: 20th Anniversary Edition is due out on October 9 via Warner; pre-order here, including a mega-super-duper box set edition that comes with five CDs, three DVDs, three vinyl records, an 80-page illustrated book featuring unseen photos, a replica tour laminate and a poster of late frontman Chester Bennington, and three lithographs of new art by Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn and Hybrid Theory art director and reissue art director Frank Maddocks.
