Watch Miley Cyrus Cover Cocteau Twins' "Heaven or Las Vegas"
"I am gonna sing a song that no one fuckin' knows — but you will know it after tonight"
Published Jul 06, 2021Continuing to expand a covers repertoire that already includes Mazzy Star, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Billie Eilish and more, Miley Cyrus has now delivered her own rendition of Cocteau Twins' "Heaven or Las Vegas."
Cyrus performed the Scottish group's song during a July 4 show at the Resorts World casino in Las Vegas, as Stereogum points out, along with covers of the Guess Who's "American Woman," Blondie's "Heart of Glass" and Dolly Parton's "Jolene."
"I am gonna sing a song that no one fuckin' knows — but you will know it after tonight," Cyrus said ahead of launching into the Cocteau Twins cover, perhaps aware of how Elizabeth Fraser's singing style has led to listener-created memes like the one above.
Sonically, Cyrus' cover doesn't stray too far from the original, as you'll hear in videos from the performance below.
Cyrus' recent cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," which she performed with Yo-Yo Ma, Elton John and more, will appear on the metal icons' forthcoming 53-song covers album.
