Metallica performed their first-ever BBC Session at London's Maida Vale Studios on November 17 as part of the launch of “Hardwired…To Self Destruct”, and the broadcaster is sharing footage of the singles “Hardwired” and “Atlas, Rise!”

The 5-song set for BBC Radio 1's "Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter" also featured the new track “Moth Into Flame” alongside 1988’s “Harvester Of Sorrow” and their 1991 smash “Enter Sandman.”

The studio session and broadcast were part of a visit that saw Metallica their first UK in-store autograph signing session at HMV’s Oxford Street store starting at midnight on November 17 and an intimate show at London’s House Of Vans.

The two-disc “Hardwired…To Self Destruct” was produced by Greg Fidelman, guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich.

A Deluxe Edition of the package adds a bonus disc of rarities and covers, including takes on tracks by Iron Maiden, Deep Purple and Rainbow, and the group’s full set at Rasputin's in Berkeley, California on Record Store Day 2016 to celebrate the reissues of “Kill 'Em All” and “Ride The Lightning.”
