Metallica said the following:

“It was an honor to work with renowned, legendary composter James Newton Howard as we reimagined the song by performing his arrangement and creating a rendition we like to think is fit for an excursion through the Amazon. The film stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt who take the fan favorite ride and transform it to a theatrical adventure. Not only are we big fans of Disney, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Howard, an eight-time Oscar nominee who has been recognized for films such as ‘The Fugitive’, ‘Michael Clayton’, and ‘The Village’. Our collaboration with Howard will be featured on the film’s soundtrack, available to stream or download on your favorite music platforms tomorrow.”

“It’s an honor to welcome the icon, the ripper, Kirk Hammett back to the Gibson family. Kirk has been carrying the flag for hard rock and heavy metal for decades, and his Gibson guitars have been there with him from the very beginning.

All of us at Gibson are looking forward to this collaboration and are grateful that Kirk has trusted us to begin a new partnership.”

Kirk Hammett Hopes Metallica’s New Album Will “Cut Through The Division And Bring People Together”

During a recent interview with Classic Rock, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. The guitarist says that he hopes the effort will help “bring people together.”

Hammett said the following:

“Metallica has always been about bringing people together through music. I think the sentiment now is that people need music more than ever to bring everyone together and collectively celebrate that we’ve got to this point. There’s a lot of division in the world, and hopefully this Metallica album will cut through the division and bring people together in ways that are more beneficial for everyone over all.”

He also added:

“We’ve tried to make the most of the COVID year-and-a-half, and we’ve been pretty successful. We’ve got together remotely and worked, and we’ve got together [properly] and worked. Things are moving really well. I would say that the music we’re coming up with is very appropriate for the times.”

“Music should bring everyone together, it should be a celebration. That’s what music is about. It’s not about selling albums or getting Grammys, it’s about putting out good music and helping the situation with that music.”
