It seems Miley Cyrus is going through a cover song phase lately ... and we're not made at it ... the singer has been giving her intrepretation of a wide aray of artists - including Hall & Oates, Billie Eilish, Blondie, Britney Spears and even Metallica (which apparently she will release a whole album of)
But it was her cover of Zombie by The Cranberries at this past weekend's Save Our Stages Fest that we are really feeling. Maybe it was nostalgia for the song or the impassioned performance she gave to a gravely empty room ... we're not sure - but we do know it was amazing ...
Before the end of her set - Miley echoed the sentients of all the SOS Fest artists with her feelings on independant live music venues and the perils they are facing:
"We're here at the Whisky a Go Go, where so many of our favorite artists have begun their journey to be icons. And without venues like the Whisky, we might have never heard of artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Guns N' Roses and thousands of other bands. So let's do whatever we can to keep this historic landmark alive."
And it's not just us who'e been impressed with Miley's covers (and Iggy Pop inspired performances) ... Debbie Harry herself praised her in a recent interview with NME.
"I thought she did a great job and I liked the way the performance looked and she’s a force to be reckoned with ... I’m really proud of the fact she did our song and made it uniquely hers."
