So remember when Miley Cyrus said she was working on a Metallica covers album? We assumed, like many that she meant she was working on an album full of Metallica covers. But what she clearly actually meant was that she was contributing a song to a compilation of Metallica covers, which the thrash legends announced yesterday. Miley's contribution is now up for streaming.

Miley teamed with her long time producer Andrew Watt, the legendary Elton John on piano, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo for her version of the track. It's a pretty close facsimile to the original, expect with far more intricate cello and piano compositions, as to be expected. Listen below.

Miley first broke the news of the cover last October when talking to Interview "We’ve been working on a Metallica cover album and I’m here working on that. We’re so lucky to be able to continue to work on our art during all of this. At first, it felt uninspiring and now I’ve been totally ignited."

The track appears on the new compilation called The Metallica Blacklist. That compilation features 53 artists spanning a range of genres, generations, cultures, continents, and more each covering a song off The Black Album. The artists include GhostKamasi Washington and way more! They are:
