As it should be.
Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park unveiled a preview of his new “World’s on Fire” music video yesterday at the Crunchyroll industry panel at Anime Expo. Mike was joined onstage by Adam Sheehan, Director of Events, and Victoria Holden, Creative Producer & Brand Manager, at Crunchyroll. Together, the three discussed the history of anime music videos including Linkin Park’s hit song “In the End,” which was frequently featured in fan-made anime videos online. Mike also shared how his personal interest in anime has shaped the inspiration for “World’s on Fire.”
“My music and anime have had a long history crossing paths, from the fan videos edited over Linkin Park’s music, to our original video for ‘Breaking The Habit.’ This new video for ‘World’s On Fire’ is a lighthearted video that focuses on a female protagonist as she learns to control her unique power,” said Mike Shinoda.
The “World’s on Fire” music video will premiere later this summer. The track comes off Mike’s recent solo effort Post Traumatic that you can listen to here.
