Name of New Metallica Producer Is 'Not Gonna Surprise Anybody,' Lars Ulrich Explains
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently gave a fresh update regarding the process of producer selection for the band's new album, noting that the circle has been narrowed down to two final picks.

Stressing how the group is "just doing their best," Ulrich told BBC Radio 1, "We had a little powwow a couple of weeks ago. Our managers came out to try and ask us that very question - who's producing our record? - and they walked away empty-handed.

"But it's down to one or two names, both of them who are certainly not gonna surprise anybody," the drummer noted (via Blabbermouth). "We've just gotta kind of circle the wagons and figure it out."

In related news, guitarist Kirk Hammett shared some new info regarding the album recording, pinpointing the writing process kickoff to this September.

"We've all said to each other that September is gonna be the time when we buckle down," Kirk told Guitar World. "I know I told everyone it was gonna be last January... but that's just the way it goes! [laughs]"
