Gordi performed a cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’ by Miley Cyrus for triple j’s Like A Version this morning (July 24).
Cyrus originally released the track in 2013. Watch Gordi’s rendition of it below:
As is typical of Like A Version, Gordi played an original alongside her cover. Accompanied by a three-piece band, the singer-songwriter performed ‘Sandwiches’, taken from her latest album, ‘Our Two Skins’.
Gordi – real name Sophie Payten – dropped the album on June 26 via Jagjaguwar. It featured the previously released singles ‘Sandwiches’, ‘Aeroplane Bathroom’, ‘Volcanic’, ‘Unready’ and ‘Extraordinary Life’.
“I’ve spent the last eight years doing both music and medicine at a million miles an hour – it’s pretty nice for once to just focus on music,” she said.
“I think if I gave up music, it would be denying this very central part of me that is important to my existence.”
Tomorrow (July 25), Gordi will air a special livestream show in celebration of her album’s release. The singer-songwriter will perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of the venue’s digital season. The stream kicks off at 9pm AEST.
