Metallica Begin Work On Next Album

After releasing, just today, their collaborative album with Lou Reed, called Lulu, to cries of “Worst Album Ever,” Metallica are back in the studio apparently trying hard to make you forget about that album and make you remember that their last studio album was seen by many as a return to form.

According to Gulf News:

“We’ve been busy writing and recording,” Trujillo says. “We’ve got a couple of new songs we have been working on the past couple of weeks. The writing process for the new Metallica album has begun. We’ve been in the studio with Rick Rubin, working on a couple of things, and we’re going to be recording during the most of next year. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.”

Cool story, bro.

If you haven’t heard anything from Lulu, you can listen to a track below and make your own call on just how bad it is.

That Lou Reed And Metallica Album Now Has A Title And Release Date

Lulu, released November 1st, is the forthcoming WTF collaboration between Lou Reed and Metallica.

Described by Lou Reed as:

…maybe the best thing done by anyone, ever. It could create another planetary system. I’m not joking, and I’m not being egotistical.

Hyperbole aside, this album has a lot to live up to. Two icons in their respective crowds colliding to flesh out songs Reed wrote for the play Lulu, an adaptation of stories from the German author Frank Wedekind.

Excited? Match made in heaven? Still confused?
