Set for release on September 10, the star-studded, 53-track collection boasts “unique interpretations” of artists’ favourite track from ‘The Black Album’, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021.
Today (July 27) SebastiAn’s ‘Don’t Tread On Else Matters’ was made available to stream online, as was Volbeat’s version of ‘Don’t Tread On Me’. Additionally, fans can receive a ‘pre-production’ rehearsal of Metallica’s original track when pre-ordering the album (check out the preview below).
Metallica will also release a remastered version of ‘The Black Album’ in September via the band’s own Blackened Recordings.
Last week, the legendary group announced a new range of Vans shoes to mark the record’s 30th anniversary. It marks the fourth collaboration between Vans and Metallica, with the most recent coming in 2018.
“What’s truly amazing now is the fact that I still feel like we haven’t really peaked, we’re still real hungry, we still wanna make music, we still care about music, we still care about each other,” Hammett said.
“I don’t see any signs of us slowing down, man, ’cause we have stuff that we wanna do.”
