TO APPEAR ON METALLICA’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY ‘BLACK ALBUM’ REISSUE COVERS PROJECT & HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED SECOND STUDIO ALBUM IN THE WORKS, NEW MUSIC COMING SOON
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 track listing 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.
The Metallica Blacklist is now available for pre-order now
The Hu are also hard at work on the follow-up to their hugely successful debut album. Recorded in their homeland over the past year, the band’s second album is in progress and fans can expect to hear new music soon. The band will also give a special preview of the project with live performances of new songs on their forthcoming tour dates announced today. Just last month, the group gave an update from the studio to fans via a video on their YouTube channel
The band are headed back out on tour across September and October in North America to reunite with fans and to celebrate the return of live music. The band have been announced as part of Halestorm’s headlining tour, making a fitting reunion with frontwoman Lzzy Hale, who collaborated with them on “Song of Women” from The HU’s #1 debut album Gereg, released via Better Noise Music.

MORE ON THE HU:
Formed in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, The HU achieved global recognition with powerful videos that have amassed over 113 million views to date. “Wolf Totem,” “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “The Great Chingiss Khan” showcase the band’s one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’ – a combination of Western heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and guttural throat singing in their native language.
The band has achieved wide critical acclaim and appeared on many 2019 year-end best-of lists. In the US Loudwire listed THE GEREG among its Top Albums of 2019 and Revolver Magazine listed the band’s video “Great Chinggis Khaan” among the year’s Top 10. In the UK, THE GEREG placed among Top Albums of 2019 in Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazines.
In late 2020, The HU released a cover version of Metallica’s ‘Sad But True.” The video already has over 7 Million views. The track is a unique take on the beloved classic that has over 142 Million streams on Spotify alone.
