While we all anxiously await for new Metallica music, one of the band's most recent tracks has been given a fresh take by the Glitch Mob. The electronic three-piece outfit have remixed the group's song "Lords of Summer" for a very special occasion.

As recently reported, Metallica will headline the 2015 X Games performance lineup in Austin, Texas, and the Glitch Mob remix of Metallica's "Lords of Summer" has been chosen as the official X Games anthem for 2015. Listen to the track above and download it for free below.

"Metallica is one of the greatest, heaviest, and most significant bands of all time. They defined heavy music as we know it today. We listened to their catalog religiously," state the group. "And Justice For All is one of the greatest albums eve. It has an immersive narrative, deep emotion and gnarly power. Our mission has always been to bring that same raw energy into our own electronic music. It was a true honor to remix Metallica: to collaborate with our heroes."
