Linkin Park and Irish company FanFootage have collaborated on the band's promo for their new single Until It's Gone.

The video features footage filmed by over 1,500 fans on phones and cameras at the band's Milan show. The footage was uploaded to the FanFootage event video crowdsourcing platform and then synced with a professional sound recording.

Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda said in a statement: "The FanFootage project enables fans to use crowd-sourced content in an easy, creative and interactive way. The only difficult part was that I had to give them instructions in Italian for the first time! Thankfully, they understood what I was saying, and uploaded tons of great videos of our performance for everyone to play and share."

Cathal Furey, CEO & Co-Founder FanFootage, added: "We have achieved two things with this collaboration with Linkin Park - set a new record for [the] number of fan videos uploaded from a single live performance, and shown how fan filming can be harnessed positively by bands to create amazing video content together.

"By choosing one song from a concert and actually asking the crowd to film it, bands like Linkin Park can give their fans an opportunity to capture that moment from their unique personal perspective and create broadcast-quality video content together."

He added: "It's exciting for us to have a fantastic live act like Linkin Park make use of FanFootage and to track the huge number of fan video uploads while sitting at our desks in our Dublin HQ. We're very proud of the results and looking forward to seeing Linkin Park use FanFootage at more of their concerts around the world."
