Metallica‘s upcoming 12th studio album’s release date and title have finally been announced.
By April 2023, the new record, 72 Seasons, will be available via Blackened Recordings. Greg Fidelman with Hetfield & Ulrich co-produced the over 77 minute-album. This full-length collection will include 12 tracks in total and it marks the band’s new material after seven years.
Hetfield, talking about the concept of the album, recently said:
“72 seasons. 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. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”
The complete track listing for 72 Seasons:
Sleepwalk My Life Away
You Must Burn!
Crown of Barbed Wire
If Darkness Had a Son
Too Far Gone?
Room of Mirrors
Aside from the upcoming album, Metallica also announced their 2023 and 2024 M72 world tour. The band can be seen playing for two nights in every city they will visit. A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will go to the band’s foundation, All Within My Hands, which they founded in 2017.
