Metallica have announced the release of a limited, live acoustic album, ‘Helping Hands…Live & Acoustic at The Masonic‘.
The double album, mixed by Greg Fidelman and newly mastered for vinyl by Reuben Cohen at Bernie Grundman Mastering, captures the thrash icons’ All Within My Hands Foundation benefit concert in San Francisco on November 3 and is set to land at independent record stores around the world as well as digital and streaming services that feature Metallica’s music on February 1.
The release includes performances of Metallica classics, as well as covers of songs by Deep Purple, Nazareth, Bob Seger and Blue Öyster Cult. Take a look at the tracklist and watch a performance of the track, All Within My Hands, below. The vinyl can be pre-ordered in the Metallica Store and all copies will include a download card. Net proceeds will be donated to the AWMH organisation.
The first ever All Within My Hands Helping Hands concert, which also included an auction, raised $1.3 million which will be used to work with the organisation’s partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges.
In other news, Metallica recently announced that they will bring their WorldWired tour back to the UK and Europe in summer 2019. Head over to Metallica’s official website for dates and ticket details.
