Metallica Announce New Album ’72 Seasons’, Share Video for New Single ‘Lux Æterna’

Metallica are back with news of their 12th studio album: 72 Seasons will be released on April 14, 2023 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. The follow-up to 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct was produced with Greg Fidelman, and it includes the new single ‘Lux Æterna’, which is out today alongside a Tim Saccenti-directed video. Check it out below and scroll for the LP’s cover artwork and tracklist.

Discussing the concept behind the album’s title, James Hetfield said in a press release: “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

In addition to the album announcement, Metallica have announced the M72 world tour, which kicks off in April and runs through September 2024. Find the list of dates below, too.
