Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has premiered a new video for his song “World’s On Fire.“ This track is from his latest album “Post Traumatic.“

Shinoda directed the clip with Juan M. Urbina and he had the following to say about it:

“My music and anime have had a long history of 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.”

“I’ve never taken an animated project from beginning to end. This video, for ‘World’s On Fire,’ seemed to arrive in my head with a full story, setting, and characters all at once, and I couldn’t ignore it.”
