In an interview with Capital FM, the 28-year-old said: ‘I did a Metallica cover of Nothing Else Matters featuring Elton John on piano, I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma, Chad Smith; so many all-stars in this band. I’m so excited about this collaboration.”
‘I mean, having Elton John and Metallica and me… I love when ingredients don’t quite fit. Or it seems like a concoction that no one would ever put together,’ she concluded.
The news of Sir Elton’s unlikely collaboration with Metallica comes after he released the first song he and Bernie Taupin wrote together.
The legendary entertainer has made the track Scarecrow available on streaming and digital formats for the first time, along with five other songs and B-sides.
Sir Elton was 20, and Bernie was 17 when they first met after both answering an advert in NME looking for songwriters.
Bernie had already written the lyrics to the song, but Scarecrow is the first time Sir Elton had put his melody to the words, which marked the start of their collaborative relationship, which has lasted over five decades.
Sir Elton said: ‘Scarecrow will always have a very special place in my heart, and I know that Bernie feels the same way too. It’s the song that started it all.’
