After much speculation (and apparently some very false starts), METALLICA are about to enter the studio to begin recording their new album sooner than later.
Drummer Lars Ulrich tells SPIN.com:
We’re writing music and we’re going to be recording very soon. At some point we’re going to want to share that with people that are interested in listening to it. So we gotta figure out ways we want to do that, from giving it away in cereal boxes to getting people to do handstands for it. We could come up with something wacky.
METALLICA are reportedly going to work with Rick Rubin again, the same guy who produced their last album “Death Magnetic“, which came out back in September 2008.
