Listen to Metallica on iHeartRadio

The new Metallica song has cropped up online.  The group debuted the song "The Lords Of Summer" during a concert in Bogotá, Columbia Sunday night.  A clip of the performance is now on YouTube. 

Last week Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich told "Rolling Stone" the band would debut a new song at the Bogotá show, saying they had "something lined up that is fairly representative" of where their "creative headspace is at right now."  But the rocker added that performing the song in concert is no guarantee that it will be included on their next album.

 Ulrich explained that Metallica played two songs during their 2006 tour that were works in progress for 2008's Death Magnetic, and neither of them were included on the disc as they were performed. Metallica's next album will be their follow up to Death Magnetic.
