Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has teamed up with Apple Music’s Beats 1 for a new radio show.
Titled It’s Electric, the first episode will air on May 7 at 3pm PT (11pm GMT) where he’ll be joined by special guest Iggy Pop. The show will be repeated on May 8 at 3am PT (11am GMT).
Ulrich says: “We go all over the world – we look at international bands for an international audience.
“This is like my 16-year-old self’s wet dream – doing a radio show to a worldwide audience. Seriously, it doesn’t get cooler than that.”
He adds: “I’m gonna play you lots of really cool music by mostly bands you don’t know – a lot of bands I’ve just been introduced to.
“We don’t believe in boundaries, and we’re open to everything. I have some guests call in on the phone, and they promise me I’m gonna have this show every week!”
In March 2016, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor launched his own show on Apple Music titled Bleeps With Corey Taylor.
The four-song set will air on Facebook and via Metallica’s website on May 9 at 9pm EST (2am GMT).
