Lars Ulrich Reckons Metallica’s Next Album Could Be Their “Best”

Cancel your next haircut because Metallica are knee-deep in the writing sessions for their next album, and drummer Lars Ulrich is feeling pretty hype about it.

“We’re three, four weeks into some pretty serious writing,” he spilled to indie rocker Phoebe Bridgers as part of a ‘Musicians on Musicians’ conversation the two had for Rolling Stone.

“And of all the shit — pandemics, fires, politics, race problems, and just fucking looking at the state of the world — it’s so easy just to so fall into a depressive state. But writing always makes me feel enthusiastic about what’s next.”

Ulrich continued: “It’s like, fuck, there’s an opportunity here to still make the best record, to still make a difference. To still do something that not even turns other people on, but turns me on.”

Sounds promising….

While you wait, there’s also a Miley Cyrus album of Metallica covers to look forward to (not even fake news).
