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
