Now this, this is the collaboration we never knew we needed.
Metallica is one of the most well-known rock bands on this planet. On top of that, their iconic self-titled album, also known as The Black Album, boasts some of their greatest hits, including the song we all know, “Enter Sandman.”
Now, according to NME, the group will be celebrating the album’s 30th anniversary by releasing a cover album.
A four-CD cover album to be exact.
And they’re bringing 53 other artists along with them.
The list of features includes some covers by St. Vincent, Portugal. The Man, Cage The Elephant, Weezer, Miley Cyrus, and many more. The most intriguing part to this album though, is that there will be a number of country stars featured as well.
According to the tracklist, Jason Isbell will be covering “Sad But True,” Jon Pardi will be doing “Wherever I May Roam,” and Darius Rucker, Chris Stapleton and Mickey Guyton will each have their own cover of “Nothing Else Matters.”
We’ve all seen some glorious covers from Chris Stapleton and Jon Pardi over time, and throw in more vocals from Rucker, Isbell, and Guyton too?
This is gonna be interesting.
The 53-track album will be released digitally on September 10th, with physical formats available on October 1st. All proceeds from the album will be split between a charity of the artist’s choice and Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.
Personally, I can’t wait to hear Darius Rucker and Chris Stapleton sing “Nothing Else Matters.” From the previews we’ve gotten, I can already guarantee it’s going to be out of this world.
