Miley Cyrus‘ upcoming Metallica covers album will feature an all-star lineup of collaborators, including Elton John, Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith and more.
Prior to the release of her new album Plastic Hearts, Cyrus revealed that Metallica are one of the bands who inspired the sound on her new rock album. For years, Cyrus has openly expressed her admiration for Metallica — in 2019, she performed the Temple of the Dog classic “Say Hello 2 Heaven” at Chris Cornell’s tribute concert, prompting Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich to give Cyrus a shout-out on Instagram. Later that year, Cyrus performed at Glastonbury and threw in a cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” linked here.
This week, Cyrus said, “I did a Metallica cover of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ featuring Elton John on piano,” she says. “I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma, Chad Smith; so many all-stars. I’m so excited about this collaboration. I’m really stoked. I love when ingredients don’t quite fit.”
