Linkin Park has shared the first visuals from the band’s upcoming One More Light Live album, featuring an emotional vocal performance from late frontman Chester Bennington.
In a heartbreaking message posted to Twitter in mid-November, the band dedicated One More Light Live to Bennington. “We dedicate this live album to our brother Chester who poured his heart and soul into One More Light,” the band explained. “After we finished recording the album, we joked with Chester that — since he had delivered so many stunning performances in the studio — he had set the bar extra high to produce that alchemy on stage each night. Not surprisingly, he welcomed the challenge.”
On Monday (Dec. 4), fans who were unable to attend the world tour received the first visual proof of this declaration, with a recording of Bennington’s emotional “Crawling” performance. The singer leans out over a barricade into a sea of adoring fans, accompanied only by a bare piano melody, highlighted in the black and white video by a handful of spotlights.
One More Light Live, to be released everywhere Dec. 15, can be pre-ordered here. Pre-orders come with an instant download of the live version of “Crawling.”
