Linkin Park will celebrate the two decades of their Muli-platinum, GRAMMY® Award nominated LP “Meteora” by releasing “Meteora 20th Anniversary Edition”, on April 7, 2023. The LP will be available in several forms, including Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set, Deluxe Vinyl Box Set, Deluxe 3-CD, and Digital Download.
A major highlight in this anniversary edition is the addition of several unreleased songs that didn’t make the cut during the release of the original “Meteora”. One of the unreleased songs “Lost” has been released as the opening single for this edition, with the late Bennington’s intense riveting vocal as the highlight.
“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 will be floored when they hear and see all the incredible unreleased songs and video footage in Meteora 20,” Mike Shinoda said.
Portraying the intense energy of Linkin Park, accompanied by Chester Bennington’s vocals that invoke vital and vulnerable feelings. The music video is produced and animated by pplpleasr and studio Web3 Maciej Kuciara, Shibuya, it gave nostalgia towards AMV band by using AI Lens Kaiber.ai. The celebration is a monumental moment for every Linkin Park fan around the world since the band still became the number 1 band on Facebook, and started to widen its social media presence on other platforms such as TikTok and Discord.
“Meteora” was first released on March 25, 2003, and was able to reach number 1 on Billboard Top 200 and receive seven times platinum in the US, sold 27 million units around the world, and receive gold and platinum certification. Among all the classic works, “Numb” has surpassed 1 Billion in streaming on Spotify and 1.8 Billion views on Youtube. “Session” also managed to be nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the “Best Rock Instrumental Performance” category.
