Obwohl METALLICA bei einem Konzert in Bogota zuletzt den neuen Song „The Lords Of Summer“ live präsentierten, was zu Spekulationen bezüglich eines neuen Albums führte, verkündete Drummer Lars Ulrich unlängst in einem Interview, dass die Band vor 2015 kein Studio betreten wird.

The last, I don’t know, six months, we finished our movie, we went to the Antarctic, we played the Grammys again, which was nice. We’ve started writing songs and preparing for the next record, so that’s very exciting. We’re down here among all of you beautiful people and playing [the] ‚By Request‘ and going to new places. We were in Quito two days ago, where we’d never been [before]. We’re playing a new song [‚The Lords Of Summer‘] on stage, which people seem to be very receptive to. We’re writing away. We’ve got some good ideas. Our biggest problem is not the ideas, our biggest problem is time. Metallica is busier than ever, and it just seems like there’s more and more going on and the days get shorter and shorter. But, hopefully, we will be done writing this year and next year we should record and hopefully have a new record out maybe next year. We’ll see. Hopefully next year.
