Metallica have released a studio version of the new song ‘Lords of Summer’, originally unveiled live in Bogata, Columbia back in March.

‘Lords of Summer’ is another Metallica epic clocking in at 8 minutes 20 seconds.

The song is a one-off release and at this stage not planned for any future Metallica album. Lars Ulrich recently told Rolling Stone magazine that the song is “fairly representative of where our creative headspace is at right now.”

Metallica’s last album was ‘Death Magnetic’ in 2008.
