St. Vincent and Sam Fender have released their covers of Metallica's "Sad But True", both of which will appear on the band's upcoming tribute album The Metallica Blacklist.

The Metallica Blacklist tribute album was announced last week alongside the 30th anniversary edition of The Black Album, and after Miley Cyrus' version of "Nothing Else Matters" featuring WATT, Elton John, Yo-Yo Ma, Robert Trujillo and Chad Smith was released alongside the announcement, St. Vincent and Sam Fender have unveiled their covers of "Sad But True".

Other artists that will appear on The Metallica Blacklist include Phoebe Bridgers, Rina Sawayama, Moses Sumney, Kamasi Washington, IDLES, Flatbush Zombies, Weezer, Mac DeMarco, PUP, J Balvin and the Neptunes, BackRoad Gee and many more.

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

The 30th anniversary reissue of The Black Album and The Metallica Blacklist will be available digitally on 10 September. Physical copies will follow on 1 October, and are available to pre-order now.
