On the official YouTube page the band said:
"Re Launching the video in memory of our brother Sonam Sherpa , on his birthday. When we first released the video, the solo was truncated to make it a better fit for broadcast timings. We are re releasing the song with his original solo, as he had played it , for the first time in these 2 decades. With the original footage unavailable, we managed to recover a few minutes from an old Hi8 handycam tape that had barely survived the years and extracted some precious footage of Sonam that was shot as part of the videos BTS footage in 2001. Rest of the video remains the same as released in 2001" (sic)
