Miley Cyrus isn’t always straddling plastic penises and causing chaos on her Bangerz Tour. Sometimes, Ms. Cyrus likes to slow it down a little.
That’s why Miley covered Jeff Buckley’s “Lilac Wine” in Melbourne. On Monday, she released the live version on her SoundCloud. Prepare to be blown away.
It’s certainly no “We Can’t Stop.” While I like both sides of Miley, it’s refreshing to be lifted from her go-hard, party-all-the-time vibe to see her getting back to her roots. She previously covered this song in her Backyard Sessions in the days before Bangerz. This one seems more free from mixing, trimming and smoothing, and Miley seems to like it more, tweeting that she’s “evolving.”
If you liked Miley Cyrus’ collaboration with the Flaming Lips at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards — or even if you didn’t — there’s more to hear from the psychedelic pair. The Flaming Lips are prepping a guest-filled re-imagination of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and they’ve just shared the studio version of “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” featuring Miley Cyrus and Moby.
You can listen to the track over at Pledge Music, where a variety of pre-order packages (featuring vinyl, t-shirts, posters, and more) are available. Click “sample artist tracks” to hear the full version.
This cover clocks in at 5:47 — over two minutes longer than the original — so you know there’s some serious Lipsy experimentation going on. But we won’t spoil anything. What do you think of Miley’s contribution?
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help From My Fwends drops Oct. 28. it also features Tegan and Sara, My Morning Jacket, Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis, Grace Potter, and many others covering the album from top to bottom. Check out a full list of collaborators here.
Out at 2014 Bonnaroo, Wayne Coyne told Billboard what it was like to hang and collaborate with Miley; you can also re-watch their BBMAs performance here!
never gets old.
One thing you can always say about Miley Cyrus is that she can laugh at herself.
The star took a small spill on stage while performing in Melbourne, Australia, and her look of surprise is rather hilarious.
“Never gets old,” Miley captioned the Instagram video.
She later uploaded a split shot of four photos captured from her red-faced moment.
Whoever said Miley Cyrus needed weird and wonderful props to make her performances shocking, hadn’t considered the power of one orange leotard.
Overall, the controversial singer wowed once again – but not with inflatable penises, giant bears and convertibles this time – oh no, just with a tiny leotard and her lack of shame.
Having landed down under just days before in a fluffy onesie, Miley was clearly saving her shocking wardrobe for the nights, and showed off her slim frame in a cut-out orange number.
At one point, the star bends down and pulls the leotard up into a thong, giving her the biggest wedgie ever.
She follows this jaw-dropper by throwing wads of bank notes into the air before stuffing a load into her mouth.
Money to throw around.
She always promises to have fun on stage, and we’re beginning to think she could go up there and do just about anything, and we’d no longer be shocked.
Challenge on Miley?
