Metallica have shared the latest single from their upcoming album, 72 Seasons. The seven-minute song, “If Darkness Had a Son,” arrives with a moody music video directed by frequent collaborator Tim Saccenti, who helmed the visuals for recent tracks “Screaming Suicide” and “Lux Æterna.” Watch the clip for “If Darkness Had a Son” below.
The rock band announced 72 Seasons back in November. The 12-track LP marks Metallica’s first full-length in six years, following Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. 72 Seasons was produced by Greg Fidelman, James Hetfield, and Lars Ulrich. It arrives April 14. Metallica will also kick off a substantial tour behind the record later that month.
