Metallica have announced a reissue of their 1991 self-titled LP, better known as the Black Album.

The remastered edition will be available on Sept. 10 in a variety of formats, including a limited-edition Deluxe Box Set containing more than 24 hours of live material, demos, rough mixes and interviews on 14 CDs, five DVDs and five LPs. (The concert material is drawn from different shows than the ones featured on 1993's Live Shit: Binge and Purge box set.)

The band also announced The Metallica Blacklist, a tribute album featuring 53 artists covering their favorite Black Album songs. That record will arrive on Sept. 10. There will also be a separate photo book, Metallica: The Black Album in Black & White, arriving on Oct. 19.

You can see the track listing for the Black Album Deluxe Box Set below. The album will also be available as a three-CD expanded edition, as well as on vinyl, on CD, on cassette and a digital download.

The reissue arrives as the latest installment of Metallica's series of retrospective releases. They've released expanded editions of Kill ‘Em All and Ride the Lightning in 2016, Master of Puppets in 2017 and …  And Justice for All in 2018.

The Black Album marks a particularly important turning point in the band's career. Pivoting from their usual thrash-metal style to a slower, smoother sound proved to be a smart decision. The Black Album became Metallica's first LP to top the chart. In 2020, it reentered the Billboard 200, making it the fourth longest-charting album and No. 1 best-selling album in Nielsen history.

"I never pictured in my mind what having a No. 1 album meant," the band's bassist at the time, Jason Newsted, told Rolling Stone. "Because I never thought it was possible to have a No. 1 record with the kind of music we played."

"I know we're No. 1 completely on our own terms," drummer Lars Ulrich added. "This whole thing was done our way. There is an inner satisfaction about that, to give a major 'fuck you' to the business itself and the way you're supposed to play the game and the way we dealt with all that shit up through the mid '80s."
