This stripped-down version of the track — now renamed “Blackened 2020” — features band members James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo performing their parts while playing their respective instruments in their individual homes.

“Here’s a little something we cooked up over the last few days,” the band wrote in a caption accompanying the video. “Hope you’re all safe & sound. Have a great weekend.”
