Despite being rock legends, Elton John and Metallica have contrasting styles. Elton’s genre leans towards pop and soft rock, in contrast to Metallica’s heavy metal sound. However, in the music realm, genre boundaries are not definitive, and creative collaborations transcend such distinctions. This is exemplified in Elton’s recent endeavor.

In a recent interview on Apple Music’s Rocket Hour, Elton revealed his involvement in a collaborative project with several prominent figures in the music industry. He disclosed, “I’ve recently collaborated with Metallica. Throughout this period of lockdown, I’ve been collaborating with artists like Gorillaz. While I haven’t focused on my solo work, I’ve been engaged in exciting projects with other musicians.”

Although Elton provided no further details, fans have deduced some intriguing possibilities. A few months ago, during an interview on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, Miley Cyrus announced her participation in a cover of Metallica’s classic track, “Nothing Else Matters,” with Elton on piano. This venture is part of a larger Metallica cover album featuring contributions from Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and pianist Yo-Yo Ma.

“I’m incredibly excited about this collaboration,” Miley Cyrus expressed. “Andrew Watt, known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne, produced the project, and I’m thrilled. The combination of Elton John, Metallica, and myself is a fusion of unlikely elements, but that element of surprise is what makes it special. Watt’s bold approach to music creation is truly commendable.”

While the specifics of Elton’s revelation remain uncertain, speculations lean towards the aforementioned collaboration. The prospect of Miley Cyrus and Elton John covering Metallica tracks is unconventional yet intriguing, offering a new perspective on the iconic band’s music.
