Surprise! Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Features On Don Broco’s Album ‘Technology’

Nine months following its release, a surprise for all of us. 

It won't be news to connoisseurs of Don Broco that the version of 'Pretty' that appears on their album 'Technology' differs from the single version of 'Pretty', which was released the year before its album counterpart. 

Yes indeed- if you've been paying attention, you'll notice there's a couple of vocal samples on the album version. The track opens with "Bedford? Where's Bedford?", and it ends with "eight days a week- eight days a week, sucker."

But where did those vocal samples come from? Whose voice is that?

Wonder no more. The man responsible is none other than Metallica's Lars Ulrich.

The story goes a bit like this- Ulrich played the single version of 'Pretty' on his Beats1 radio show last year- and he was enamoured by the song (and Rob Damiani's exceptional jawline). And thus, the vocal samples were born.
