Nationwide Fan Hunt for New Metallica Album?

(Classic Rock) Lars Ulrich is intrigued with the idea of hiding copies of a new Metallica album somewhere in every ZIP code across the United States, and urging fans to go and find them. It's an illustration of how the drummer feels the band aren't finished stretching themselves, and how they want to continue trying new things to keep their music fresh.

Ulrich tells Rolling Stone: "I still don't feel we've challenged ourselves enough. We still talk about 'the next album.' We can do whatever we want with our music. 'We've hidden a new Metallica CD in each ZIP code in America. Go find it!' There's nothing but options."

There are 43,191 area codes in the current US ZIP directory. But even if that idea doesn't come to fruition, Ulrich insists there's plenty more to be done by the 30-year-old thrash outfit. And he's still glad they recorded controversial album Lulu with Lou Reed, despite its hugely negative response.
