"Metal" is a song originally by Gary Numan that Poppy covered. It was released as a single on July 6th, 2018.
"Metal" was met with confused reception from fans and the media, expecting it to be a new single. With the recent announcement of her second album "Am I A Girl?", fans expected Poppy to release the album's first single rather than a standalone cover. As such, it was met with fewer streams and views than most official Poppy singles.
- This is the first Poppy cover of the "Poppy" era that was officially released as a single.
- When the audio was released on YouTube, people who had Poppy.Church open would be redirected to the video, specifically at 9:36 PM PST.
- The official instrumental was leaked in September of 2018.
