‘RTRN II Jungle,’ Chase & Status’ most recent studio album, was released in May 2019. Last year, they covered Metallica’s ‘Wherever I May Roam’ with BackRoad Gee for the band’s ‘The Metallica Blacklist’ album.

That record “celebrated the enduring influence of Metallica with an unprecedented 50+ artists spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more, each contributing a unique interpretation of their favourite ‘Black Album’ cut”.
