Miley Cyrus To Release Bob Dylan Cover Song For Charity
Miley Cyrus has been busy with charity work and her acting career, yet she is making time to record a cover of a song by folk singer Bob Dylan. MSNBC confirmed that the former Disney star will be releasing on yet to be named cover song for Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International. Ke$ha and Adele are also attached to the project. No word on when the album will come out.
I know Miley is big on doing edgy cover songs, but Bob Dylan is a tough one to do. His vocals are very unique and hard to mimick, let alone to out sing. Many say that he is an example of someone whose work should never be covered. However, this should be very interesting to see pop singers trying to sing to such a well known folk singer. It will be a tough, yet fun job for all of them.
What song do you think Miley should do? I think “Rolling Stone” or “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” would be good options for her. They are a bit slower, but still gritty. They would fit her well or at least in my opinion they would. On the flip side, she is very brave to tackle a big project after not being in the music scene for a while. I hope the critics will not be too tough on her. She does deserve some kudos on the fact that she is taking the risk.
