Miley Cyrus is one of over 50 artists contributing to The Metallica Blacklist, a unique covers album paying tribute to Metallica’s 1991 self-titled album in honor of its 30th anniversary.

Cyrus’ cover (below) finds the singer taking on the metal band’s classic ballad “Nothing Else Matters.” She isn’t performing alone on this cover, though; she has one hell of a backing band consisting of Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and WATT (aka: producer/musician Andrew Watt.)

Cyrus made headlines in October 2020 when she said she was working on a Metallica covers album. Many presumed she meant she was working on an entire album and not just contributing to a grander project.
