Linkin Park has released a track with the late, great Chester Bennington on vocals.
‘Lost’ is the name of the new track and it was made when the band was recording the album ‘Meteora’, which turns 20 years old this year and brought hit songs like ‘Numb’ and ‘Somewhere I Belong’ into the world.
Linkin Park fans have been voicing their love for the new track - and how good it is to hear new Chester vocals - on the song’s YouTube comments.
“Getting ‘new’ songs with Chester's voice is something I think we will all treasure from now on!” one commenter wrote.
“I feel so blessed to hear Chester's voice again, after all these years!! Chester will always be a legend,” another comment reads
“Surreal to hear Chester's voice again and in a new song,” a third added. “As always, the words of the song are so meaningful and deep. Masterpiece.”
“Oh my god, this is magical. I always wanted to hear his voice again, it’s magnificent,” one more said.
A music video for the new track is also coming out today, the band said on Twitter. It’s set to premiere on their YouTube channel at 6pm (NZT).
The new track comes after last year when the band said it’s “about time to begin sharing a little more regularly with you” in an Instagram post.
They had been teasing the release of the track for a while now. Last month they had a countdown on their website which ended on the first of February, leading to an interactive puzzle of a computer on a messy desk.
‘Lost’ is the first single the band has released since Bennington’s shocking death back in 2017. In 2020 they released the 20th anniversary of their debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’ which featured some unreleased tracks. A deluxe edition of ‘Minutes to Midnight’, the band’s 2007 album, was released in May of last year.
