Metallica have released their new song, Lords of Summer through iTunes.
The new song, which is technically titled Lords Of Summer (First Pass Version), clocks in at over eight minutes long. According to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich , the song is fairly representative of the new material being written for the upcoming album. It should be noted that Lords of Summer might not even appear on the new record.
The band debuted the song in March at a show in Bogota, Colombia.
