Cyrus cited Metallica as an inspiration behind her latest album, 'Plastic Hearts' - which saw incredible collaborations with the likes of Billy Idol, Stevie Nicks and Dua Lipa.
After hitting No. 1 on the rock album charts recently with her Plastic Hearts record, Miley Cyrus is now firmly planting herself within the genre.
Other big-name stars on Miley's forthcoming Metallica covers album will include Yo-Yo Ma and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.
The singer-songwriter has already recorded a version of the band's 1991 hit single:
"I did a Metallica cover of 'Nothing Else Matters' featuring Elton John on piano, I've got Yo-Yo Ma, Chad Smith; so many all-stars in this band," she said. "I'm so excited about this collaboration."
Cyrus is aware that some fans may not take to the revamped rendition of the original track:
"I mean, having Elton John and Metallica and me ... I love when ingredients don't quite fit," she said. "Or it seems like a concoction that no one would ever put together, and you gotta have someone like our producer Andrew Watt that will take that risk."
Cyrus recently performed covers of Hole’s 'Doll Parts' on the Howard Stern Show - which Courtney Love herself praised - and remixed her song 'Midnight Sky' with Stevie Nicks's hit 'Edge of Seventeen'.
