Linkin Park Release Anime-Inspired Music Video for “Lost” and Detail the 20th Anniversary Set of Meteora


The 20th anniversary of the release of Linkin Park‘s Meteora is quickly coming up this April 7 and as previously announced, the surviving members have some surprises teed up for their fans. To kick things off, the band released a brand new, never-before-released track titled “Lost,” which you can check out the anime-inspired music video for down below.

According to the band, “Lost” came about as they’d been going through their archives of unreleased material. Mike Shinoda said finding the track and hearing Chester Bennington’s voice again brought back many memories.

“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.”

As you can see in the footage below, the music video was produced an animated to look like an old school AMV, with producer and animator pplpleasr and Maciej Kuciara’s Web3 studio Shibuya working on the clip. As with most things these days, the band also enlisted an AI production software called Kaiber.ai to assist in the video’s creation.

In addition to the new song, the band outlined what’s coming in the special Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set of Meteora:

  • A total of six previously unreleased songs, including “Lost,” along with demos, b-sides, live shows, and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage.
