Watch Miley Cyrus raucous cover of The Cranberries classic Zombie – NME

Miley Cyrus has performed a cover The Cranberries Zombie for the #SaveOurStages (#SOS) festival.

The raucous rendition of the Irish bands 1993 hit was one of two covers sung by the singer for the festival, which fundraised to preserve US grassroots music venues affected by thecoronavirus pandemic.

Cyrus, who played a short set with her band at LA venue Whiskey a Go Go last night (October 17), also coveredThe Cures Boys Dont Cry. She ended the set with a performance of her recent single, Midnight Sky.

Towards the end of the performance Cyrus paid tribute to Whiskey a Go Go, remarking that rock legends including Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Guns N Roses all found early footing at the iconic LA haunt. Lets do what we can to keep this historic landmark alive, Cyrus said.

Foo Fighters followed Cyrus live-streamed show with a 30-minute acoustic set filmed at LAs The Troubadour.

The band, like Cyrus, took part to help fundraise for the National Independent Venue Associations #SaveOurStages campaign, which aimsto get the bipartisan Save Our Stages Act passed.

The move would create a $10billion (7.8billion) small business association fund to help those small venues that are struggling or being threatened with closure due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last month, the Foos brought back the original designs of two of their 1995 tour t-shirts to help benefit the initiative. Proceeds from the sales of the shirts went towards #SaveOurVenues (from UK sales) and #SaveOurStages (from US sales).

Cyrus, meanwhile, has discussed her forthcoming, as-yet-untitled new album. She said the record, which follows last years serialised She Is Coming EP release, will be reflective of who I am.
