Miley Cyrus Finally Makes Good On Her Metallica Cover As Part Of The Band’s Massive Covers Album

30 years ago, in the summer of 1991, Metallica released their self-titled fifth album, which kicked off their still-active streak of No. 1 albums and is one of the best-selling musical releases of all time. Now, the band is marking the occasion with a pair of special releases, both of which are set for September 10.

One is a reissue of the album that will feature a bunch of extras. The Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set, for example, features “the album remastered on 180G 2-LP, a picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs (containing rough mixes, demos, interviews, live shows), 6 DVDs (containing outtakes, behind the scenes, official videos, live shows), a 120-page hardcover book, four tour laminates, three lithos, three guitar picks, a Metallica lanyard, a folder with lyric sheets, and a download card.”

The other is The Metallica Blacklist, a 53-track release that features covers of the songs from Metallica. The announcement was accompanied by Miley Cyrus’ long-awaited cover of “Nothing Else Matters,” which features Watt, Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Robert Trujillo, and Chad Smith.

Other artists who contributed to the album include Mac DeMarco, Rina Sawayama, Weezer, Jason Isbell, St. Vincent, Pup, Corey Taylor, Cage The Elephant, J Balvin, Moses Sumney, The Neptunes, Portugal The Man, Phoebe Bridgers, My Morning Jacket, Darius Rucker, Chris Stapleton, Idles, and Kamasi Washington.
