Blackened Recordings

St. Vincent is sharing a different version of her cover of Metallica‘s “Sad but True.”

The “Los Ageless” rocker has shared an Instagram video of her performing the opening riff of the Black Album classic on an acoustic guitar.

“Prepping for my ‘Sad but True’ cover,” she wrote in the caption. “Acoustic metal. Omg is that already a genre?”

St. Vincent previously premiered her electric, industrial-rock-influenced cover of “Sad but True” in June for the upcoming The Metallica Blacklist tribute album. The all-star compilation includes 53 artists covering every song off The Black Album in honor of its upcoming 30th anniversary.

The Metallica Blacklist will be released September 10, along with a 30th anniversary deluxe reissue of The Black Album.

St. Vincent, meanwhile, released a new album called Daddy’s Home in May.
