Miley Cyrus and Metallica performed “Nothing Else Matters” live on The Howard Stern Show to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s self-titled record, also known as “The Black Album.”
For The Metallica Blacklist, Cyrus covered “Nothing Else Matters,” a downtempo jam from the record that she has been performing at her live shows for years.
The Metallica Blacklist offers up new dimensions of the record whose gravitational pull first drew the mainstream to Metallica — and provides new insights into the universal and timeless appeal that kept it there: the boundary-smashing influence these 12 songs have had on fans and musicians of all stripes.
The Metallica Blacklist’s 53 tracks find singer songwriters, country artists, electronic and hip hop artists sharing their love of these songs alongside punk rockers, indie darlings, icons of rock, metal, world music and many, many more… and for 50+ good causes: Profits will be divided evenly between charities of the artist’s choice and Metallica’s All Within My Hands foundation.
The Metallica Blacklist is a fitting and limitless homage, one that features bands who’ve shared stages with Metallica alongside artists who are younger than the original album. It’s a truly staggering, at times mystifying assemblage of musicians, dozens of whom have little to nothing in common other than the shared passion for the music that’s united them for this album: 1 Album. 12 Songs. 53 Artists. Unlimited Possibilities. The title will be available in formats including digital, four-CD and a limited-edition seven-LP vinyl pressing.
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Metallica’s self-titled album, the Grammy-winning, 16-times-platinum-certified LP also received its definitive re-release on September 10 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Remastered for ultimate sound quality, The Black Album remaster is available in multiple configurations including 180-gram double vinyl LP, standard CD and 3 CD expanded edition, digital, and limited-edition deluxe box set.
