"This is a monumental opportunity for Metallica fans to be the first to hear the new album. We are thrilled to be a part of this historical global moment – connecting Metallica with their fans once again," said Kymberli Frueh of Trafalgar Releasing who joined with the band on this project, as well as the worldwide premiere of S&M2 in 2019.

72 Seasons, Metallica’s first collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct -- produced by Greg Fidelman along with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich -- will be available everywhere on April 14, 2023. The band is also set to hit the road on Metallica’s M72 World Tour this year and into next, playing two nights in every city they visit -- with each "No Repeat Weekend" featuring completely different setlists and support lineups.
