Hear a preview of Metallica’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ version of “Nothing Else Matters”


Get ready to hear Metallica as you’ve never heard them before.

Last fall, it was revealed that the metal legends had recorded an orchestral version of their song “Nothing Else Matters” for the upcoming Disney movie Jungle Cruise. Now, with the pandemic-delayed film set to finally be released this Friday, we’ve gotten our first preview of what Disney Metallica sounds like.

Brief snippets of the track can be heard in a new Jungle Cruise teaser, which Metallica tweeted Thursday. According to the band, you’ll hear “Nothing Else Matters” not once, but twice in the film.

“It was an honor to work with renowned, legendary [composer] James Newton Howard as we reimagined the song by performing his arrangement and creating a rendition we like to think is fit for an excursion through the Amazon,” Metallica says.

You’ll be able to hear the recording in full when the Jungle Cruise soundtrack drops tomorrow alongside the film, which will screen in theaters and on Disney+ via Premier Access.
