Lars Ulrich from METALLICA‘s drummer says about the band’s new album creativity problem during in pandemic. He also talks about Spotify CEO’s statement.
The band recently released its S&M2 album. Lars Ulrich‘s and his band friends don’t like the Donald Trump management of the USA. They also recall we don’t like Donald Trump‘s management at all. We’re not on the same page with Trump to different degrees, originally for the whole band members have never spoken out too much for politics. He also says he would consider moving back to Denmark.
During an interview with NME, Lars Ulrich revealed the new music ideas and METALLICA’s creativity during the ongoing pandemic:
“I’m not sure – it’s not easy, but we’ve been doing what we can. We’ve been exchanging ideas back and forth. The hardest thing about being in four different spaces is that there’s no software that can have us all play in real-time to reach each other.
“So I can play something and send it to the next guy and then he can play on it and he can send it to the next guy, or vice-versa, but we can’t play at the same time so it takes the impulsivity and the momentary energy out of the occasion. I’ve talked to some people in technology about how close we are to being able to all play in real-time with each other, but that hasn’t been cracked yet.
If it is, we’ll maximize it, but for now, we’re in this bubble for a couple of weeks, and we’re looking forward to seeing if at some point this fall, we can get back into another bubble where we write and play and maybe even record – so we’re looking forward to the possibilities on that one.”
Lars also added what’s gonna happens with METALLICA’s new album:
“Not soon enough! Right now, I’d say the hardest thing about all this is trying to plan because five minutes later, those plans change – that’s just the nature of the state of the world at the moment and we’re going to have to accept and surrender to it.
I think it’s a good reminder of the fragility of the world and how maybe we should occasionally pause and be a little bit more respectful and appreciative of what we have and understand how quickly it can derail in terms of how we arrogantly expect everything to be the way we wanted as a human race.”
