On Tuesday, YB posted the cover of Metallica’s new album, âThe Metallica Blacklist,â on his Instagram account and announced that he was on the project in February.
The next album is a special compilation and reissue to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1991 Metallica classic, “The Black Album”. Some 53 musicians, including rock and heavy metal bands as well as pop and classical musicians from around the world, participated in the recording. Weezer, Miley Cirus, Elton John, Robert Trujillo, Yo-Yo Ma, Igor Levit, Mac DeMarco and St. Vincent are among the participating musicians.
YB’s track on the album is a reinterpretation of Metallica’s “Sad But True”. The song’s lyrics have been interpreted in many ways by fans, with some seeing it as a message about blind religious faith while others see it as a message about inner conflicts, for example.
As YB has raised various social issues through their music, Korean fans are anticipating a new take on “Sad But True” by the band.

YB is a long-time benefactor of the organization.
The vinyl and CD versions of “The Metallica Blacklist” are scheduled for release on October 1, following the digital release on September 11.
