Just six days before his death, Chester Bennington and Linkin Park joined James Corden for an episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, a spinoff of Corden's Late Late Show segment . Now, the future of that episode will be up to Bennington's family, Corden told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

"We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled," he said. "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, really."

"It's completely up to them," he said.

Bennington, 41, a father of six, died from suicide on July 20.

Bennington's wife, Talinda, thanked Corden on Twitter for letting the family decide how the footage should be used.

The Linkin Park episode was filmed on July 14 and was originally slated to air sometime in October via Apple Music. The episode featured the band singing with actor Ken Jeong.
