72 Seasons


Cassette, Coloured LP, CD, LP


Metallica has confirmed the title and release date of its forthcoming 12th studio album: 72 Seasons
will be available April 14, 2023 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg
Fidelman with Hetfield & Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track 72 Seasons is
Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The
album will be released in formats including 2LP 140g black vinyl and limited edition variants, & CD.

72 Seasons is heralded by first single “Lux Æterna,” a short, sharp blast that distills 40 years of
Metallica into three and a half minutes.

Speaking on the concept of the album title, James Hetfield said: “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.”
