Blackened Recordings

The worlds of reggaeton and country unite on Metallica‘s Blacklist album, an upcoming tribute to the metal legends’ 1991 self-titled record, aka The Black Album.

The latest covers to be released from the star-studded compilation are versions of “Wherever I May Roam” by J Balvin and Jon Pardi. Balvin’s rendition finds him rapping in Spanish over samples of the original song, while Pardi turns the track into a dark country epic.

Both covers are available now for digital download.

The Metallica Blacklist will be released September 10. In recent weeks, Metallica has shared covers of songs including¬† “Sad but True,” “Holier than Thou” and “The Unforgiven,” recorded by the likes of St. Vincent, Biffy Clyro and others.

The compilation also includes the previously released all-star version of “Nothing Else Matters” featuring Miley Cyrus, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Elton John, guitarist/producer Andrew Watt and cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Meanwhile, Metallica has also dug up a live version of “Wherever I May Roam,” recorded in October 1991. It’s one of many bonus tracks included on the upcoming 30th anniversary reissue of The Black Album, which also arrives September 10.
