Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has revealed that the band have been discussing the possibility of recording a new album while in quarantine during the global pandemic.
“We’ve been sitting around in the last four to six weeks and having numerous conversations,” Ulrich told Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff during a livestream session on Tuesday. “The four members of Metallica connect via Zoom once a week, and it’s great to connect. All four of us are, obviously, in four different locations in four different states right now. But one topic of conversation on these weekly Zoom sessions is what does it look like going forward? What will the next couple of months look like? What will the rest of the year look like? And what will, obviously, say, the next decade look like in terms of how do we create, how do we write music, how do we record music, how do we share music, and how is it all gonna look with the uncertainties ahead of us.”
He added: “will there be a Metallica quarantine record? I can’t tell you, because, again, I don’t know how long the quarantine will last. But if you and I and the rest of the world are sitting here six months from now or a year from now, I’d say there’s a very good chance.”
