Click above to watch fan-shot footage of the popstar performing her version of the song, which originally featured on The Smiths’ third album, 1986’s ‘The Queen Is Dead’. It’s not the only indie cover the singer has performed recently. Last week on the ‘Bangerz’ tour Cyrus was joined by Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips for a performance of ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ by The Beatles in Manchester. The performance was recorded for use in the Billboard Music Awards, which took place on Sunday (May 18).
Earlier this year, Coyne shared footage of him recording a version of ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ with Cyrus as part of a remake of The Beatles’ album ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ that he is working on along with members of Tame Impala and Moby. Titled ‘With A Little Help From My Fwends’, the album will be released on October 28.
Coyne and Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips also recently joined Cyrus during her gig at LA’s Staples Center for a rendition of their classic song ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, Pt 1’. Cyrus recently said that she has been writing songs for the follow-up to her ‘Bangerz’ album with Coyne and Drozd, praising their ability to “change keys on a whim”.
