LINKIN PARK unveil their first-ever career-spanning greatest hits album entitled Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023) out now via Warner Records. Listen HERE. It is available at all DSPs and in various physical configurations, including CD, Cassette, and double Vinyl. For the latter, there are several limited edition color vinyl variants, a Zoetrope picture disc, and black vinyl.

To celebrate the collection’s arrival, the band just shared a frenetic and fiery visualizer to accompany the sought-after rarity and highlight “QWERTY.” Watch below. Fittingly, the clip reflects the energy of the hard-hitting Minutes To Midnight-era B-side with its buzzsaw distortion and cathartic vocal delivery.

They initially teased Papercuts with the never-before-released track “Friendly Fire.” The single notably just hit #1 at the Alternative Radio Chart, marking the band’s 13th number one at the format. It has impressively gathered over 20 million streams and counting so far as well as 7 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning acclaim, People noted how “the song encapsulates [One More Light]’s style,” and Revolver praised, “Poignantly, the single features one of the last recorded vocal performances by their late, great frontman Chester Bennington.”

In addition to new arrivals “Friendly Fire” and “QWERTY,” the 20-track Papercuts compiles 18 essential anthems, from “Crawling,” to the Jay-Z collaboration “Numb/Encore,” to the recently RIAA Diamond-Certified (10x Million) “In The End.” See below for the full tracklisting.

Linkin Park were inspired to thoughtfully curate Papercuts by their fans’ passionate reception of the 20th Anniversary Editions of Hybrid Theory in 2020 and Meteora last year, with both albums topping Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, Top Rock Albums Chart, Top Catalog Albums Chart, and Top Vinyl Albums Chart, and earning Top 10 debuts on the Billboard 200. That enthusiasm led to this comprehensive retrospective of the band’s journey so far in the span of one epic album, Papercuts, out now.
