Miley Cyrus has revealed that she is starting work on a Metallica covers album but has remained coy about the details surrounding the planned project which will take seeing to be believing.
Cyrus has put the lockdown to good use and has been doing a plethora of covers including most recently a version of The Cranberries‘ ‘Zombie’ which the band gave their seal of approval to. The surviving members of the group said that their late leader Dolores O’Riordan would have also have been in awe of the cover too. “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!”
Covers are becoming Miley’s speciality and she has covered Metallica live before during her set on the Pyramid Stage at the iconic Glastonbury Festival when she performed ‘Nothing Else Matters’ but a full album of covers has taken everybody by surprise.
“We’ve been working on a Metallica cover album and I’m here working on that,” Cyrus revealed to fashion designer Rick Owens in a new feature for Interview magazine.
“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,” she added.
Elsewhere in the interview, Cyrus also revealed who she thought was the ultimate rock star, “People ask me who I’ve studied for my movement on stage, and I always say Iggy Pop,” Cyrus stated.
