When asked why she recorded “Through the Never,” the “Beautiful” crooner said:
“I recorded this Metallica song because I was quite drawn to the spirit in the song. To me, “Through the Never” questions and explores the highs and lows, the strengths and weaknesses of our humanity in the most succinct and concise of ways. I feel like it also explores our relationship with the universe and with the world around us. And there’s one thing I particularly appreciate, it kind of salutes our bravery.”
The Metallica Blacklist and the 30th anniversary remaster of the original Black Album will both be released on September 10th. The Metallica Blacklist will feature 53 artists who have performed covers of tracks from The Black Album. Among the featured artists are Tomi Owo, Juanes, Miley Cyrus, J Balvin, and Weezer. 100% of The Metallica Blacklist sales will benefit 52 charities.
