Chart-topping rock act from Mongolia The Hu have been announced as part of Metallica’s Special 30th Anniversary Black Album Reissue Covers Project, on which they cover the iconic group’s song Through the Never.
They appear on the tracklisting alongside some of the biggest names in music – Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Yo-Yo Ma, St. Vincent, Phoebe Bridgers, J Balvin with the Neptunes, Weezer, and many many more – who offer their own renditions of Metallica’s songs that originally appeared on the legendary LP. All profits from the project, formally titled The Metallica Blacklist, will be split evenly between the All Within My Hands Foundation and 50+ charities chosen by the artists who play on the album. The HU have chosen The Giving Day Charity Fund as their beneficiary. The Giving Day Charity Fund is a non-profit, non-religious organization of Mongolia reinforcing the fight against women and children and domestic violence, providing support and empowerment opportunities to vulnerable women, adolescent girls and children through access to education, arts and culture and wellbeing guidance since 2010.
