An episode of Carpool Karaoke featuring late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington will be released next week, according to the band. There was initially some doubt that the episode would ever surface, given that it was filmed in such proximity to his death, but it is apparent that the band and the family have approved the release.
At the time, host James Corden said that the show would leave it up to the family and the band when it comes to whether or not the episode will be made public.
“We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don’t think there’s any other way we could deal with it,” he added. “It’s a tragedy.”
Previous episodes have been made available online and it is believed that this episode will release next Thursday, though there has not yet been a confirmation.
