Quick Hits: Metallica, Lorde / Dave Grohl, Alternative Press
April 25, 2014

Using a baseball metaphor to describe the band's progress on their next album, Lars Ulrich tells Rolling Stone that Metallica is "in the fourth inning" of the process. "We've been doing this, off and on, for the better part of a year," he says. "We're going to do these dates this summer and then really hone down." Ulrich added, "We're going to start talking about who is going to produce the album," says Ulrich. "We haven't started recording yet. But we are deep into the songwriting part of it." The rockers are currently getting ready to tour Europe this summer, letting fans vote on the setlist via metallicabyrequest.com.


Lorde
Lorde performed with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony earlier this month, and Dave Grohl praises the teen musician in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Grohl said the first time he heard her hit "Royals," "My two daughters, Violet and Harper, who are eight and five years old, started singing along. I was so happy and relieved that my two girls were singing a popular song on the radio that had some substance and depth, which I considered to be healthy for them as kids. I know that sounds kind of parent-ish." He continued, "I thought, 'Hey, this might be another revolution.' When I met her I said, 'When I first heard your song on the radio and my kids sang along I felt like there was hope for my kids to grow up in an environment which is more than just superficial.'" Grohl added, "There's something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic. She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist."

Alternative Press magazine has announced its first-ever AP Music Awards, which will be handed out on July 21 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Fifteen awards will be given out that night, with performances set from Fall Out Boy, Joan Jett, A Day To Remember and others. The show will be hosted by Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, while Jett and Billy Corgan will be honored with the AP Icon Award and Vanguard Award, respectively.
