Metallica releases new track; hopes you download it

Lords Of Summer is only about eight minutes long.

Ahead of a headlining appearance at the Glastonbury Festival next week in Britain, Metallica has posted the new song Lords Of Summer on iTunes, where it can be downloaded for about RM6.

The American heavy metal giants premiered the song at a live show in Bogota, Colombia on March 16 and have since performed it live throughout South America and Europe.

A “garage demo” of the track was posted on YouTube on March 19, while the new take, coming in at eight minutes and 20 seconds, is called a “first pass version”.

The band explains: “Those of you with astute ears will notice some minor differences from the version we streamed on YouTube and released on ... it’s still a work in progress, but we wanted to share it with you as it stands today... it most probably will change again!”

Metallica will make its Glastonbury debut – and become the first heavy metal act to headline the festival – on June 28. — AFP Relaxnews
