Metallica Announces The Release Date Of ‘The Black Album Remastered’
In a recent tweet on the band’s official Twitter account, the thrash metal legend Metallica has announced the date of release for their upcoming album ‘The Black Album Remastered.’
It has been known that Metallica has been working on new music during the lockdown. James Hetfield has announced earlier that they composed at least 10 new songs while being isolated, and said that the band contributed to the production from their home studios. Apart from that, the band had also announced a live album and documentary titled ‘S&M2’ and two featured songs last year.
As you might know, this year is the 30th anniversary of Metallica’s ‘The Black Album’ which was released on August 12, 1991. And to commemorate this anniversary, the band has worked on a new edition of the album, ‘The Black Album Remastered.’ Before announcing the release date, Metallica had posted mysterious teasers on their social media, which immediately led to speculations about the date of release.
Most of their fans were expecting the album during the fall because some fans have caught a glimpse on the caption of the post which read ‘coming this fall,’ but the band deleted the video soon after and changed the caption. Highly anticipated by the fans until now, this new record will be the band’s first release since their ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’ in 2016.
According to a video Metallica has posted on Twitter, the album’s release date will be September 10th, a time which confirms the speculations. A compilation of concert videos and photos, the video in the tweet also says ‘Celebrate The Black Album. Your Way. Remastered. The Metallica Way.’ The tweet also makes it clear that the fans can enjoy the album however they like, with several formats such as a mammoth limited-edition deluxe box set. At the end of the tweet, there is a link that allows the fans to pre-order the album as well.
The tweet read:
“Introducing ‘The Black Album’ Remastered. With several formats including a mammoth limited-edition deluxe box set, you can enjoy our most well-known album however you like. Black Album 2021.”
