Although METALLICA is about to release a surprise collaborative album with Lou Reed, the band is also writing songs for its 10th studio effort on its own. Producer Rick Rubin, who worked with the group for the first time on 2008's "Death Magnetic", told Billboard that he met with drummer Lars Ulrich and was scheduled to return to San Francisco to sit down with the whole band and "explore what the focus is going to be this time around."
Rubin offered a hint of how that initial meeting with the band will go: "I'll ask a lot of questions and we'll probably listen to some of the riffs they've been writing. And usually I'll hear something that will sort of indicate the direction and then we'll talk about it from there."
Rubin did not give a timetable for when he thought METALLICA might begin recording.
