NEW MUSIC: RINA SAWAYAMA | ENTER SANDMAN
Rina Sawayama is the latest artist to cover Metallica for the band’s forthcoming compilation, "The Metallica Blacklist." Sawayama’s contribution to the project is a cover of “Enter Sandman.” The latest track is to arrive from Metallica’s upcoming covers album "The Metallica Blacklist," set for release on September 10. The star-studded, 53-track collection boasts “unique interpretations” of songs from "The Black Album," which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021. Among the acts to have contributed to the special project are Phoebe Bridgers, St. Vincent, Biffy Clyro, Weezer, Mac DeMarco, Weezer and Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor. Most recently, IDLES shared a version of "The God That Failed" this week. The song's profits will be split between Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation and Rina’s chosen charity Positive East, which works in HIV support and prevention. Along with the covers album, "The Black Album" will also be given a “definitive” reissue on September 10, featuring a 180-gram double vinyl LP, a standard CD and 3xCD expanded edition, digital download, streaming and a limited-edition deluxe box set. Sawayama, meanwhile, recently confirmed that she would make her acting debut in the forthcoming John Wick 4 alongside Keanu Reeves.
