Miley Cyrus is giving her fans everything they ever wanted as she ramps up promo ahead of the release of her sixth LP, Younger Now. Today (September 15), the 24-year-old teamed up with BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform a mini-concert of fan-favorite tracks including her 2007 top 10 hit “See You Again” and 2009 anthem “Party in the U.S.A.” Dressed in an oversized Elvis t-shirt and a pair of turquoise boots, the “We Can’t Stop” siren performed with a full band on the porch of her Rainbow Land Studio on her Malibu property.
In the style of her latest releases including “Malibu” and the album’s title track, Miley put a country spin on her pop classics. She imparted a slight country twang on “See You Again” and delivered a decidedly somber take on “Party in the U.S.A.” She also moved through an evocative rendition of Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” The ballad featured a soaring vocal line and showcased her ability to emote over a sparse instrumentation. “That was hard. It made me want to cry,” she said as the final notes reverberated.
The set may not have been as explosive as her work during the Bangerz era, but it showcased her diversity as a performer. Miley also sat down for an interview with Clara Amfo inside her studio to chat about her experiences in the UK, recording her album, the VMAs and much more. Watch her work way through “Party in the U.S.A.” up top and check out her interview, “See You Again” and “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” below.
