Metallica & San Francisco Symphony unleash video for “No Leaf Clover” from album ‘S&M2’

Metallica consisting of frontman James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Rob Trujillo along with the San Francisco Symphony have unleashed a video for the song “No Leaf Clover” from their recently released album

S&M2, which was recorded over two days in San Francisco, California, USA in September 2019.

Wikipedia states the following about the song “No Leaf Clover” (with slight edits):

“”No Leaf Clover” is the eighth song on the live album S&M by Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony. The song (along with “- Human”) was one of two new pieces completed for the band’s collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony in 1999. It begins with an intro section played by the orchestra, before entering into a clean guitar part by James Hetfield. The rest of the piece alternates between clean verses and choruses backed by heavily distorted guitars.

Nowadays when the song is performed live, the orchestra backing track or footage of the S&M performance is used for the orchestra intro. It was the band’s fourth No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It stayed at No. 1 for seven consecutive weeks. It was also featured in the trailer created by the distributor A.D. Vision for their DVD releases of the TV series Farscape.

The song “No Leaf Clover” featured as a playable track in the 2009 music game Guitar Hero: Metallica.”
