Chris Stapleton Covers Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’: Listen
Chris Stapleton is the latest artist to put his own spin on Metallica‘s “Nothing Else Matters” after he shared his cover of the heavy metal band’s hit on Thursday (Aug. 12).
“Nothing Else Matters” is from the band’s self-titled 1991 album (better known as “The Black Album”), and the song peaked at No. 11 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. The accompanying music video recently reached 1 billion views on YouTube.
“The Black Album” is celebrating its 30th anniversary Thursday (Aug. 12), and on Sept. 10, a star-studded covers album titled The Metallica Blacklist will be released via Blackened Recordings. Miley Cyrus is among the 53 musicians included in the set, which will include her version of “Nothing Else Matters,” also featuring Elton John, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, frequent collaborator Watt and Metallica’s very own bassist Robert Trujillo. Phoebe Bridgers also contributed a cover of “Nothing Else Matters.”
