I can’t speak for everyone when I say that watching Miley Cyrus writhe around Whiskey A Go Go doing a guttural rendition of “Zombie” by The Cranberries hit me like a Sambuca chaser at 2AM – but it does seem to have struck a collective chord.
The performance has been trending across social media since it aired live on Sunday, generally accompanied by the words “AMAZING” and “JSDHFKSDF”. I guess it’s where many of us are at right now, but whatever handle I had left on my emotions has been shown the door by Miley and her James-Hetfield-chuffing-20-B&H-a-day voice belting out a song written in memory of two young boys killed in an IRA bombing.
Miley Cyrus has been in a perpetual state of transformation since 2008. She’s gone from Disney actress, to controversial pop star, to self-releasing a sprawling psychedelic album with Wayne Coyne, to Instagram girlfriend country pop, to “Cattitude ft. RuPaul” in the same amount of time it’s taken Ed Sheeran to make three near-identikit albums in the same plaid shirt.
Objectively, it’s been hit and miss. There was Bangerz – an album eternally tethered to 2013 for all the wrong reasons, its accompanying VMAs performance with Robin Thicke (which was like watching all my sleep paralysis demons having a ketty party) and a song called “Milky Milky Milk” that we probably could have done without. Though her public persona has remained largely the same throughout the 2010s, each artistic reinvention has been an extreme departure from the last – and, for one reason or another, they have all missed the mark.
Miley Cyrus has revealed that she is currently working on a Metallica covers album.
The ‘Midnight Sky’ pop star covered the band’s classic track ‘Nothing Else Matters’ during her rock-orientated performance at Glastonbury 2019, and has recently offered up live renditions of Blondie’s ‘Heart Of Glass’ and The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’.
During a recent conversation with Interview Magazine, Cyrus explained that she is now back in the studio — and that “we’ve been working on a Metallica covers album and I’m here working on that”.
“We’re so lucky to be able to continue to work on our art during all of this [the coronavirus pandemic],” she added. “At first, it felt uninspiring and now I’ve been totally ignited.”
Miley Cyrus captured everyone’s hearts and ears when she rocked out to Blondie’s No. 1 hit “Heart of Glass” during the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2020 earlier this month. Now, she’s letting fans hold onto that moment by releasing her cover on streaming services Tuesday (Sept. 29).
The pop star announced on her social media it was “by popular demand” that she makes it available everywhere. When she asked her social media followers on Sunday, Adam Lambert, Paris Hilton and more begged her to drop it. Hours before she made the announcement, UFC fighter Julian Marquez tweetedthat if Cyrus dropped her cover on digital platforms as highly requested, he would walk out to it on Nov. 14.
