The new track will follow the release of the singles Lux Æterna, Screaming Suicide and If Darkness Had A Son earlier this year, with the record itself set to be released on 14 May. Frontman James Hetfield has previously explained that the album’s title, 72 Seasons, refers to the number of seasons we experience in the first 18 years of our lives.
“The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are,” he explained, adding, “Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”
Metallica are set to hold a 2023/24 world tour in support of 72 Seasons, with tickets now on sale.
