Kamasi Washington Covers Metallica’s ‘My Friend of Misery’

    Kamasi Washington has shared his take on Metallica’s ‘My Friend of Misery’, which appears on the upcoming covers compilation The Metallica Blackilist. The saxophonist performed his rendition live with his band at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles last month, where he was joined by Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo onstage. Check out the studio version of his cover below.

    The Metallica Blacklist, which features 53 different artists’ takes on songs from Metallica’s self-titled ‘Black Album’, is to arrive on September 10. We’ve already heard covers from the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Weezer, Rina Sawayama, and more.
