Singer takes to Instagram to post a clip of previously unheard ballad
Miley Cyrus has posted preview of a new song online.
A clip of the untitled ballad being performed at one of her recent shows was posted on her Instagram page. You can watch the brief performance below.
Cyrus recently teamed up with Laura Jane Grace to perform her band’s 2014 track ‘True Trans Soul Rebel’.
The performance coincided with the launch of her new charity The Happy Hippie Foundation which saw her resurrect her Backyard Sessions series.
Miley’s Backyard Sessions first took place in the summer of 2012 and saw the pop star singing a number of covers in her back garden, including ‘Jolene’ and ‘Lilac Wine’. Earlier this month, she announced the return of the series by posting a video of her and Joan Jett performing the punk rocker’s 2013 track ‘Different’. She has also shared her own solo cover of Dido’s ‘No Freedom’.
The Happy Hippie Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded by Cyrus to fight the injustices faced by homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations. “Homeless youth and young people experiencing the negative effects of being LGBT in our world today is an issue that is very common and extremely current,” Cyrus wrote in an open latter via the charity’s website. “No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender, status or orientation.”
Meanwhile, The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne recently revealed that the pair have recorded a seven-song album together that he has compared to both Pink Floyd and Portishead. Miley previously appeared on The Flaming Lips’ cover of The Beatles ‘A Day in the Life’.
