Metallica Release New Studio Version of 'Lords of Summer' on iTunes
In anticipation of next week's headlining performance at Glastonbury, Metallica has released a new version of "Lords of Summer" on iTunes.

The updated studio version of the track is different from the demo version that the band posted on YouTube some weeks ago, featuring re-recorded vocals from James Hetfield, as well as a new solo from Kirk Hammett.

AsĀ NME reports, Glastonbury festival founder Michael Eavis has defended the decision to have Metallica headline the festival. The band has come under fire from some sectors for being 'too heavy' for Glastonbury:

"There's no other band in the whole history of the festival that has been so keen to play, they will do the best set of their lives here," he said. "We have been going for so long that people don't expect us to put on a heavy metal band. We had Rage Against the Machine and we have had lots of fairly heavy metal bands in the past but this is not a typical headline."
