Asked about whether or not there was any fear about how the album my be receieved, Ulrich told GQ: "No, I sense only joy and elation and the excitement of sharing this. I think it's the most obvious collaboration on this planet ever. It puts a smile on my face every time I read somebody saying, 'That's the oddest collaboration.'
