Good news, Metallica fans! After teasing it with live and demo versions, the classic metal band have released the official recording of their song "Lords of Summer." 

Dubbed the "First Pass" version, the eight-minute track starts off with semi-hard guitar riffs before shifting into a faster pace. Vocals kick-in after a minute-and-a-half, where subjects such as dreaming, fire and a titular line that goes "Lords of summer / Bring the sun" pop up.

Will this be the "song of the summer"? Probably not, but it's as close as the rockers will get these days. Check out the track below and buy it on iTunes
