Miley Cyrus busted out one of her signature killer covers in a preview of Thursday’s (Jan. 28) Tiny Desk Home Concert, which will drop at noon ET today. Rocking a fuzzy cowboy hat, shades, long black animal print coat with clashing animal print pants and vest, the singer crammed into a tiny kids’ room-like set to croon her simmering cover of Mazzy Star’s signature 1994 ballad “Fade Into You.”
In a second clip posted by NPR, the singer is stripped down to her vest inside the pink room plastered with child-like drawings and tiny furniture to perform the yearning “Golden G-String” from her recent album Plastic Hearts. Miley, of course, has been on an epic covers tear over the past few months, dropping instant-classic takes on songs by Blondie, the Cranberries, Britney Spears, Pink Floyd and Billie Eilish.
In the meantime, Miley is gearing up to performer at the TikTok Tailgate pre-show event where she’ll rock the stage for the 7,500 health care heroes who the NFL invited to Super Bowl LV. “I’ll be there for TIKTOK TAILGATE!!! I can’t wait to put on a show for the NFL’s honored guests before the game…. Health care workers from Tampa and around the country!” Miley wrote in a Jan. 24 Instagram. The TikTok Tailgate can be watched on Feb. 7 at 2:30 p.m. ET, either on TikTok or CBS.
