This is the first new song by Metallica in six years.

After a six-year hiatus, Metallica released the song "Lux Aeterna" and announced a new album. The video was released a few hours ago and has so far been viewed by more than a million people. Fans of this popular band are delighted with their return to the music scene, especially since the song came unexpectedly.

"The fact that they released the song unannounced makes it even better," wrote one YouTube user. The album "72 Seasons" will be released on April 14 next year and will contain 12 songs. It was produced by Greg Fidelman, James Hetfield, and Lars Ulrich.

Metallica will embark on a world tour in April, which will last until 2024. Here you can see the list of cities where they will perform. The concerts will also include the bands Greta Van Fleet, Pantera, and Mammoth WVH.
