The ‘Midnight Sky’ pop star covered the band’s classic track ‘Nothing Else Matters’ during her rock-orientated performance at Glastonbury 2019, and has recently offered up live renditions of Blondie’s ‘Heart Of Glass’ and The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’.
During a recent conversation with Interview Magazine, Cyrus explained that she is now back in the studio — and that “we’ve been working on a Metallica covers 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 [the coronavirus pandemic],” she added. “At first, it felt uninspiring and now I’ve been totally ignited.”
After asking the interviewer to name their favourite rock stars, Cyrus said: “People ask me who I’ve studied for my movement on stage, and I always say Iggy Pop.”
This news comes after the singer previously cited Metallica as an inspiration behind her as-yet-untitled upcoming new album, which she said “will be reflective of who I am”.
“It’s one of the finest covers of the song that we’ve heard,” they wrote on social media. “We think Dolores [O’Riordan] would be very impressed!”
