Ex-Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted Announces 'Metal' EP
The bassist unveiled the EP with a hand-written letter to fans, posted online over here. While he has previously spoken about releasing his music on vinyl, Metal will be exclusive to iTunes. Pre-orders begin next week, on December 18. Purchase all four songs and you will receive a copy of Newsted's handwritten lyrics.
Check out the tracklist below. Blabbermouth notes that Newsted will film a music video on December 18.
The onetime Metallica member previously discussed the possibility of releasing a string of four-song EPs, and Metal suggests that this plan may be going ahead. He said, "I have so much music from over the years. I have a bunch of new stuff, I have so many mixes of projects with people — new players, young players, old-school players like myself — so I'm just trying to figure out exactly what I wanna unleash on everybody first."
