Miley Cyrus and Metallica perform “Nothing” live on “The Howard Stern Show” to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary, known as “The Black Album”.
To celebrate the anniversary, a remastered version of “The Black Album” was released on September 10, including “Metallica Blacklist”, a cover album featuring more than 50 artists, including Cyrus, IDLES, Moza Sumni and Chris Stapleton.
For “The Metallica Blacklist”, Cyrus is included in “Nothing Else”, which is slower than what he is performing on his live show for Yes. Cyrus and the band sat down for an interview with Stern before performing the song with Metallica on “The Howard Stern Show”.
Metallica’s James Hetfield reflected on the song’s emotional nature in an interview, saying that he was initially afraid to bring the song to the rest of the band because it was different from the rest of their component.
Hetfield said, “It was one of the weakest places … We built the reputation of this tough guy, we made it with stone, you can’t hurt us.” “And that’s one of the weakest things, and obviously, the harder the armor, the bigger the heart you want to show, but you’re scared. So I was shocked when Bob Rock and Lars [Ulrich] They both said, ‘It’s beautiful, it’s a wonderful song.’ It was a life-changing experience for them to be able to play it and they embraced it. ”
Cyrus said the song reminds her of when she performed it at the Glastonbury Festival in 2019 during her divorce from Liam Hemsworth and her recovery from the Malibu fire.
Cyrus said, “It was just before, the world knew I was getting divorced – but I knew I was in Glastonbury about two weeks ago.” “And I just lost my house in the fire, and it was my first show. And I had ‘Nothing Else Matters’, about music.”
