Rina Sawayama, Moses Sumney, Kamasi Washington, Flatbush Zombies, Mac DeMarco, PUP, J Balvin and the Neptunes, BackRoad Gee and many more will also feature on the covers album.

Profits from The Metallica Blacklist will be split evenly between charities of the artist’s choice and Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation.
