Miley Cyrus has revealed that she’s doing a cover of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters with Elton John.
While it was originally thought that the pop star was working on a full album of ’Tallica jams, Miley actually says to Capital FM host Roman Kemp in a brand-new interview, “I’m doing a song for Metallica’s cover record.” Does this mean that the metal titans are planning a covers album with different stars, rather than Miley doing one of her own?
Anyway, she continues: “So I did a Metallica cover of Nothing Else Matters featuring Elton John on the piano. I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma, [Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer] Chad Smith – just so many all-stars.
“I’m so excited about this collaboration. Andrew Watt produced it, and I’m really stoked. I mean, having Elton John and Metallica and me – I love it when ingredients don’t quite fit, you know? Or it seems like a concoction that no-one would ever put together, and you’ve got to have someone wild enough like Watt that will take that risk.”
