Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Announces His New Beats 1 Radio Show, It’s Electric!

Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich is taking his love for music to the air waves. The legendary drummer has just announced details for his new Beats 1 radio show, It’s Electric!, which debuts Sunday, May 7th at 3 p.m. PT on Apple Music with special guest Iggy Pop.

Here’s what Lars said about the new venture: “This is my 16-year-old self’s wet dream: doing a radio show to a worldwide audience. We go all over the world – we look at international bands for an international audience. 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. I’ve got so much stuff to share with everybody out there and a lot of stuff that’s turning me on. I’m telling you, people that love great music, rock music but also hip-hop and world music, and all the rest of it – there’s a lot of people that talk about, ‘Well the music business is in sad shape, and it’s dying,’ but there’s a ton of fantastic music out there, and I’m reenergized and reinvigorated and ready to share it with the world.

Tune in this Sunday for the first show!
