Royal Blood is the latest band to share its contribution to The Metallica Blacklist, choosing to cover "Sad But True."

“Our cover of Sad But True for The Metallica Blacklist is out now,” the duo wrote on Twitter.​ “It was an honour to be asked to be a part of this, and we’re very happy to be supporting the All Within My Hands Foundation and Chestnut Tree House.”

Last week, Phoebe Bridgers shared a "baroque" cover of "Nothing Else Matters," and earlier this month Weezer released their take on "Enter Sandman."

These covers, along with 50 other songs, will be compiled into a monumental box set of four CDs or seven LPs to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Metallica's Black Album. In addition to The Metallica Blacklist compilation, the band also plans to re-release their self-titled album as a box set that "includes the album remastered on 180-gram double LP and CD, "Sad But True" picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs and six DVDs featuring unreleased content (live shows, rough mixes, demos, etc), MP3 download card of all audio, four tour laminates, lanyard, three lithos, three guitar picks, lyric folder and sheets, and a 120-page hardcover book with never-before-seen photos + stories from those who were there."

The albums are slated to drop on September 10, with the physical copies of The Metallia Blacklist ready to ship on October 1.
