Linkin Park stream video for unreleased Meteora song Fighting Myself

Linkin Park are streaming a video for “Fighting Myself”, an unreleased track from the forthcoming 20th anniversary releases of their 2003 album, “Meteora.”

Directed by Jacky Lu and made with, the clip follows “Lost” as the second previously-unreleased song from the expanded 2023 editions of the project.

As the band combed the “Meteora” archives, Mike Shinoda knew the hard-hitting instrumental for "Fighting Myself" was awaiting discovery but was surprised to uncover vocal stems of himself and Chester Bennington. He then gave the multitrack a deft mix and the song in its final form emerged as what Shinoda calls "a definitive Linkin Park track." Now, it seethes with Shinoda's incisive verses boosted by bruising distorted guitars as Bennington's chorus rings out, "Fighting myself I always lose."

Due April 7, “Meteora 20th Anniversary Edition” will be available in multiple formats, including a Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set, Deluxe Vinyl Box Set, Deluxe 3-CD, and Digital Download.
