Miley Cyrus covers Mazzy Star for NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk’

The singer also performed tracks from ‘Plastic Hearts.’

Miley Cyrus recently made an appearance on the home edition of NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series.

Cyrus performed from inside a tiny bedroom decorated to look like a teenage girl’s, and kicked things off with a woozy cover of Mazzy Star’s dream pop classic “Fade into You.” Thereafter, the pop star segued into her anti-Donald Trump song “Golden G-String,” from her most recent album, Plastic Hearts.

“So, the mad man’s in the big chair / And his heart’s an iron vault / He says ‘If you can’t make ends meet, honey, it must be your fault,’” she sings. “And oh, that’s just the world that we’re livin’ in / The old boys hold all the cards and they ain’t playin’ gin / And you dare to call me crazy, have you looked around this place?”

Cyrus closed her set with “Prisoner,” albeit without featured artist Dua Lipa, and stepped out of the tiny room to join her band on stage. The 28-year-old singer released Plastic Hearts last year, which featured collaborations with Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Billy Idol.

Prior to Cyrus, the likes of TH1RT3EN, Hayley Williams and Chloe x Halle made appearances on Tiny Desk. Watch her performance below:
