Metallica release Lux AEterna lyric videos in multiple languages

Metallica have released a series of lyric videos for their new single, "Lux AEterna", in multiple languages.

The lead track from the group’s forthcoming album, "72 Seasons", can be viewed with lyrics displayed in English, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

Due April 14, 2023, the album was produced by Greg Fidelman, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich.

“We have completed recording at HQ, and our 12th studio album is coming your way!,” says the band. “It’s been six years since ‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’, so we think it’s about time for some new music.”

“72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,”
explains Hetfield about the album title. “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 re-enactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

Metallica will launch a two-year world tour in support of the project in Amsterdam, NL two weeks after the album’s release in April.
