METALLICA’s Lars Ulrich: “There is lots of material to share with the fans”

Lars Ulrich talks about the band’s METALLICA‘s new album. He just interviews with Zane Lowe on Apple Music to play his “At Home With” special playlist.

The previous month, METALLICA members one by one explains the new album ideas. Due to pandemic, the thrash band legends never stop. They just started a #MetallicaMondays every week. Also, in May, the four members of METALLICA overcame social distancing to record a new and acoustic-ish version of their “Blackened” song. In this video, each band member separated in his own home. They also recently announced and released the ‘Encore Drive-In Nights‘ concert series.

During this interview, Lars Ulrich talks with Zane Lowe on the Apple Music program and reveals some new details:

“Between you and I and nobody else, we have a call at two o’clock today, the four of us, to talk about what’s next, after spending the two weeks in the bubble and having the best time ever reconnecting. We’re looking forward to what’s next.

We’ve spent a few of the summer months trading riffs, trading ideas, throwing creative thoughts back and forth through Zoom calls, and through other technologies. We’re looking forward to getting to it, lots of material to share with the world. And it’s just a matter of the practicals and being able to sort of figuring out how to get it going as quick as possible.

We are trying to find any possible ways to connect with our fans and with the Metallica family. And I think that a positive coming out of these five dark months is that it’s forcing you to just rethink what you know and what we’re so used to. So a new world order calls for new experimental times and shenanigans. So let’s see how it plays out.”

Lars Ulrich also added:

“The reason that I can sit here, and I can sit here and talk about 40 years of Metallica, is because very early on, we realized that the unity and the collective of the four of us is stronger than any of us individually,” he noted. “And in order for us to stay strong, we have to stay respectful, connected, and we have to support each other. So you support each other through-The positive and the non-positive. And so it’s part of the ride. Ultimately, I’m really f-king proud of it.”

METALLICA kick-off the “Encore Drive-In Nights” series on August 10 in outdoor theaters across the U.S. and Canada.
