Metallica's Re-Load album, due out on Elektra in the U.S. Nov. 18 and a day earlier in the U.K. on Mercury, will include a track with a "vocal melody" by Marianne Faithfull.

"The Memory Remains" was cut in Dublin, where Faithfull lives, while Metallica was in Europe for festival appearances. It is the first time the band has invited an outside vocalist to contribute. Re-Load features 13 songs penned for the band's 1996 set Load, which was originally planned as a double CD.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
