Miley Cyrus, Sean Lennon, Mark Ronson Release Timely “War Is Over” Cover

first_imgAt midnight, Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, and Sean Lennon released a brand new track together, a powerful cover of “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”, with the Harlem Community Choir. The 1971 classic was originally written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, the parents of Sean Lennon, as a protest song against the Vietnam War before it became a Christmas standard.This weekend, Cyrus and Lennon will sing their duet on Saturday Night Live. During an interview with Howard Stern‘s Sirius XM show on Wednesday, she admitted to the upcoming surprise performance, saying “It’s just so magic every time we sing it… goosebumps all over the place.”Cyrus goes on to explain the song choice: “This song… the way that it is so true to where we are right now and these lyrics of, ‘What have we done?’ Are we doing enough, are we actually active? All we do is complain and we don’t actually get out there and do enough in our communities,” she said. “I think it’s so timely for right now, and for him (Sean) and I just to kind of be this… next generation to encourage people to fight for the change we want to see (makes it a perfect choice).”“Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” marks the second single released by Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson is as many weeks, following the undeniably catchy “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”.Ronson and Cyrus are currently working on the country-pop star’s seventh studio album together, much to the delight of fans starving for more from the young artist (including us, guilty!). Cyrus has been rather quiet since her 2017 album, Younger Now–even deleting her personal Instagram account for several months leading to the announcement of her most recent single. Before that, she self-released her boldest work of art to date, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, with Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips.On the other hand, Sean Lennon is currently gearing up to release his second original album with bassist Les Claypool, South of Reality, under the moniker The Claypool Lennon Delirium. The psychedelic song crafters have been met with wildly deserving success since their inception in 2016, and will tour this upcoming spring in support of the new music.Listen to the new single from Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, and Sean Lennon below:last_img read more

Moura hat-trick sends Spurs into UCL final

first_imgThat was when the ball broke to Lucas in the box and the Brazilian sent a low shot beyond the despairing dive of Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana to seal their comeback, making it 3-2 to them on the night, 3-3 on aggregate, and taking Mauricio Pochettino’s men through on away goals.The Ajax players slumped to the turf, their fans stunned, as they go out and Spurs advance to face fellow comeback kings Liverpool in an all-English final in Madrid on June 1.Leading 1-0 after the first leg, the thrilling young Dutch side appeared to have killed the tie after captain Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech both scored in the first half here.That left Tottenham needing a comeback to match that of Liverpool against Barcelona the previous night, but in an even shorter amount of time.Lucas Moura fires through a sea of bodies to equalise on the night for Tottenham© AFP JOHN THYSA quickfire brace by Lucas early in the second half gave them something to cling to, before he struck the decisive blow, denying Ajax a first final since 1996.Erik ten Hag’s team, who had already eliminated the holders, Real Madrid, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus this season, were applauded by their devastated fans at full-time and must now somehow lift themselves to try to win the Dutch title.They had been dealt a blow just minutes before kick-off when Brazilian winger David Neres pulled out of their starting line-up after the warm-up, his place taken by the young Dane, Kasper Dolberg.– Whirlwind start –That last-minute switch did not perturb the Dutch club, though. Far from it. Dusan Tadic moved to the left wing, and Ajax set about tearing into their opponents right from the off, just as they had done in the first leg.They won a corner after Hugo Lloris had stretched to his left to beat away a Tadic shot, and from the delivery that followed from Lasse Schoene, De Ligt rose to head home a fifth-minute opener.Spurs — without Harry Kane but with Son Heung-min back after missing the first leg due to suspension — did threaten an immediate reply as a Son cross hit the near post, but Ajax escaped and came again, a Tadic shot that fizzed just past the far post acting as a prelude for what was to follow in the 35th minute.This time Tadic, the former Southampton player, cut the ball back for Ziyech, whose first-time shot on his left foot flew into the far corner from a difficult angle.It was a wonderful goal, and it had surely killed the tie.The Spurs fans were understandably subdued, and they would not have harboured too much hope in Fernando Llorente as the big striker replaced Victor Wanyama for the second half.Yet the way Pochettino’s side came back out after half-time echoed what Liverpool had done at Anfield 24 hours earlier.They scored their first in the 55th minute, Lucas combining with Alli and slotting low past Onana.Four minutes after that Onana made an improbable save from Llorente’s effort inside the six-yard box, but the ball came back to Lucas and the Brazilian turned and managed to find a corner.He wheeled away in celebration, all too aware that Tottenham were now just one goal away from completing the turnaround.With such tension, Ajax no longer appeared so liberated, but Ziyech twice nearly scored again, grazing the post with a first-time shot and then hitting the same upright in the 79th minute.Jan Vertonghen hit the bar at the other end, but just when it looked like Ajax would hang on, Lucas delivered the killer blow.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lucas Moura stunned Ajax with a 96th-minute winner© AFP Adrian DENNISAMSTERDAM, Netherlands, May 9 – Lucas Moura’s last-gasp strike took Tottenham Hotspur to the Champions League final for the first time in their history on Wednesday, completing his hat-trick and sealing an incredible 3-2 win over Ajax to leave the Dutch side heartbroken.Ajax’s improbable European run seemed set to go on all the way to the final as they led 3-2 on aggregate deep in stoppage time in the second leg of the semi-final at the Johan Cruyff Arena.last_img read more
