The Replacements have sounded sharp at recent performances, but this rendition of their Let It Be classic “Androgynous” gives even Paul Westerberg and company a run for their money. Miley Cyrus teamed with Joan Jett and Laura Jane Grace and Atom Willard of Against Me! for a killer cover.
Grace and Jett both take on solos, and Miley provides some brassy backing to their three-part harmonies in the refrains. It’s a perfect score for everyone involved, if you ask us.
Even when she’s not singing on her own, it’s really no secret that Miley is a massively talented vocalist. The “Androgynous” cover is part of her “Backyard Sessions” (though her Happy Hippie Foundation), which raises money for LGBT and homeless youth. She previously teamed up with Jett on “Different.”
More #backyardsessions videos coming today!! Huge thank you to Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and #JoanJett of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts for lending their voices and helping me launch The Happy Hippie Foundation. Find out more at happyhippies.org #HappyHippiePresents #Androgynous #HappyHippie
