Rock band Linkin Park released a previously-unreleased single titled “Lost,” commemorating the 20th anniversary of their 2003 album Meteora.
First New Linkin Park Music in 3 Years
This is something that hits Linkin Park fans in their heart. The band has released a new track with the late Chester Bennington’s vocals, something that they had not heard since 2020. Back then, the band shared another unreleased tune – “She Couldn’t,” recorded in 1999. Nevertheless, the new song, “Lost,” produces nostalgia in anyone that grew up listening to the band. Why? Because it sounds like classic 2000’s Linkin Park. The song lets Chester’s vocals truly shine, and the sound of the instruments in the background are simply magical.
“Lost” is The First of Six Unreleased Tracks With Chester’s Vocals
Ever since Chester’s tragic passing in 2017, Linkin Park has been in an indefinite hiatus, stating that they don’t want to look for a new vocalist. This time, they announced that “Lost” will be part of a project celebrating the 20th anniversary of their album Meteora. Meteora 20 will include 5 more unreleased songs besides “Lost” that didn’t make the original tracklist of the 2003 album. Additionally, it will include demos, live shows, B-sides and previously unaired footage with the band.
Meteora 20 is arriving on April 7. It will be available in multiple variations, including a limited edition super deluxe box set, deluxe vinyl box set, deluxe 3-CD and digital download.
“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,” the band’s Mike Shinoda said in a press statement. “For years, fans have been asking us to release something with Chester’s voice. 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.”
It’s unclear if Linkin Park will be sharing another song before the big release. Yet, there’s less than 2 months of wait time until then. So tell us, what did you think of “Lost”?
