drummer Lars Ulrich
recently discussed the band's new song "Lords of Summer
," calling it a fun tune, but expressing uncertainty about its final form on the eventual official studio version."It's fun to play,"
the drummer told Metal Hammer. "It seems like the kids are enjoying it. There was actually somebody in the snake pit the other day with a homemade 'Lords of Summer' t-shirt on, which was very endearing; that was cool."It's fun, yeah. It's a good song,"
Lars continued. "Hey, listen, who knows by the time the next record comes out whether it will be in its same shape or format. But it's fun to play. And I think it's going down well, from what I can tell, from my little spot."
As UG previously reported
