Robert Trujillo Says Metallica’s Next Album Will “Come A Lot Sooner Than The Previous Two Did”

It looks like fans won’t have to wait too long for the next Metallica album. During a recent interview with The Music, Robert Trujillo confirmed that the band are already working on ideas for a new record and that it will “come a lot sooner than the previous two did.”

Trujillo said the following:

“We have a zone we call ‘The Tuning Room’ which is a space where we can jam and warm up before the show. We’re always in there coming up with ideas and you may get a few seconds of an idea but everything is recorded, always. And then of course at home, everyone has got ideas.”

“‘Death Magnetic‘ was, for the most part, a collaborative effort. ‘Hardwired‘ was more central to James‘ specific ideas and was also taking the spirit of what we had done on the previous record. I’m excited about the next record because I believe it will also be a culmination of the two records and another journey. There’s no shortage of original ideas, that’s the beauty of being in this band.”

He also added the following when asked when fans can expect to hear it:

“It will come a lot sooner than the previous two did… this time around I think we’ll be able to jump on it a lot quicker and jump in the studio and start working. We’re all vowed to get this one going sooner than later. Now, how soon? I don’t know. We’ve been touring non-stop. It’s been over two years now. At some point, sure, we’ll need to take a little bit of a break. It’s sort of the right thing for us to do because we’ve been going so hard. We’re gonna be still busy next year.”
