Metallica have announced a 30th anniversary reissue of their 1991 self-titled album (known as The Black Album) on September 10th via Blackened Recordings.
The forthcoming deluxe box set will feature a 2xLP, a picture disc, three live LPS, 14 CDs, six DVDs, a hardcover book, and more. Alongside the reissue, Metallica is dropping The Metallica Blacklist, which is an expansive 53-track covers album that will benefit a whole slew of charities.
Blacklist sees a bunch of artists delivering their own renditions of tracks from The Black Album, including St. Vincent covering “Sad But True;” PUP performing “Holier Than Thou;” Moses Sumney playing “The Unforgiven;” Phoebe Bridgers, My Morning Jacket, and Mickey Guyton each sharing respective covers of “Nothing Else Matters;” Mac Demarco, Rina Sawayama, and Weezer all sharing renditions of “Enter Sandman;” and more.
Today, we’ve gotten a preview of the collection with Miley Cyrus’ cover of “Nothing Else Matters,” which she played with Elton John, WATT, Yo-Yo Ma, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Listen to that below.
Check out the full tracklist for Blacklist here, and watch some trailers for the albums, and several versions of “Enter Sandman” (including a cover from Juanes) below.
