Metallica have made their four-song acoustic set from the recent 10th annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert available for purchase via digital download at LiveMetallica.com.

The GRAMMY-winning band will donate all net proceeds from sales to the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

“We had a great time down in Los Angeles honoring our hero Ozzy Osbourne at the MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit,” said Metallica. “We dusted off our acoustic guitars and had fun with a short set of cover songs, including Rare Earth’s ‘I Just Want To Celebrate,’ Deep Purple’s ‘When A Blind Man Cries,’ Ozzy’s favorite Beatles song ‘In My Life’ and, finally, ‘Diary Of A Madman.’”

Taking place May 12 at Club Nokia, the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert honored Ozzy Osbourne and owner and CEO of The Village studios Jeff Greenberg. Osbourne received the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund. Greenberg was presented with the MusiCares From the Heart Award for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the organization.

In addition to Metallica, performers included Beth Hart, Keb' Mo', Osbourne, Slash, and Chad Smith. The benefit concert was hosted by comedian Dax Shepard.
