Sir Elton John didn’t intend to record a new album during the pandemic, but it ended up happening anyway. John recorded remote collaborations with a number of different artists, and he’s now compiled those collabs into his new LP The Lockdown Sessions. The new album shows John working with artists from across the spectrum, sometimes in a supporting role, and truly showing his range. John has said that the album reminds him of his days working as a session musician in the late ’60s: “Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I’d come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast.”

We’re getting closer and closer to the release of The Metallica Blacklist, the bugged-out new project where 53 different artists cover the songs from Metallica’s self-titled Black Album. One of the weirdest things about this whole project is that it seems to involve very few metal bands, or even artists with a noticeable metal influence in their music. There’s nothing conventional about the Japanese-British mutant pop star Rina Sawayama, but her version of “Enter Sandman” actually has something to do with metal, which makes it a bit of a rarity on this project.
