A little papercut never stopped Linkin Park. The nu-metal act announced their first greatest hits album, Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023). The compilation drops on April 12 via Warner Records.

Popular staples made the final cut to the LP, including “Crawling,” “Bleed It Out,” “Leave Out All The Rest,” and the quintessential banger, “In The End.” Rapper and producer for the group, Mike Shinoda, explains their decision-making: “Each song in this collection is both a singular moment on our timeline and an evolving story that is as much ours as it is yours. From our first release…to the brand new…this tracklist spans all our chapters so far.”

The act recently put out an unreleased track from their One More Light recording days that appears on the special release as the final song. “Friendly Fire” features late frontman Chester Bennington doing softer, yet iconically identifiable vocals. Guitarist Brad Delson says the track was one of his favorites from the sessions. “When we started looking for an unreleased track to include on our greatest hits collection, the power of the song blew me away, the power of the storytelling, the power of the vocal, the sonic landscape, and I actually thought that it was closer than maybe we had realized at the time.”

Last year, the group released the Meteora 20th Anniversary collection, which included live recordings, demos, and songs from the vault.
