Miley Cyrus and Elton John in an unexpected artistic coexistence to the sounds of Metallica.

Miley Cyrus is recruiting heavy artillery for the album she is preparing with Metallica song covers.

When you think of "Metallica" and "hard rock music", do you ever imagine a former Disney Channel star, a gay icon, a famous cellist and a rocker drummer together? According to Miley Cyrus, it was time to imagine the coexistence of these people.

In an interview with the British radio station Capital FM, Cyrus talked about her upcoming collaboration with Sir Elton John, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith in an unexpected rendition of the classic song "Nothing Else Matters "by Metallica since 1991.

"I did a cover of Metallica's 'Nothing Else Matters' with Elton John on the piano, I also have Yo-Yo Ma and Chad Smith. So many stars in this band. "I am so excited about this collaboration," said the singer.

Miley Cyrus continued by noting that she understands the fact that the idea of ​​the cover may not be liked by everyone, but said that this is why he loves her even more.

"I mean, we have Elton John, Metallica and me. I like it when the ingredients don't fit well enough. Or when it looks like a mix that no one would ever combine and you have to have someone like (song producer) Watt to take that risk, "he explained.

Miley Cyrus had revealed that she is preparing an album with Metallica song covers in an interview she gave in October, while she sang "Nothing Else Matters" in her appearance at the "Glastonbury" festival in 2019.

Metallica is one of the influences on Plastic Hearts' new album.
