Metallica fans might want to sit down for this. According to Kirk Hammett, the metal legends are recording a new album with Lady Gaga. The guitarist let the news leak in a now deleted message while responding to a fan on social media. When asked if the possibility existed of the pop singer joining the band in studio after their on stage performance last year, Hammett replied, “Gaga is gonna kill em all in the studio when she sings for us.” The message also hinted at an early 2019 release for what could be called The White Album.


What do you think about the idea of Metallica recording with Lady Gaga? Will it rank up there with the band’s collaboration with Lou Reed?
