MILEY CYRUS Covers PEARL JAM for MTV Unplugged & Nails It

Miley really nails the Pearl Jam track.

There seemed to be a lot of controversy when Miley Cyrus revealed she's currently working on a Metallica covers album. But, as we've said from the start – the girl can sing. We included plenty of examples, but here is another. Miley performed a Pearl Jam cover of "Just Breathe" with her band The Social Distancers for an edition of MTV Unplugged.

You can watch the full performance on MTV's website. Here's the Pearl Jam version:

Miley revealed to Interview "We’ve been working on a Metallica cover album and I’m here working on that. We’re so lucky to be able to continue to work on our art during all of this. At first, it felt uninspiring and now I’ve been totally ignited."

The metal world is sure to have their opinions, but Miley makes it clear elsewhere in the interview she's just doing whatever the hell she wants to right now.  “I have such a healthy and sexy relationship with recklessness right now. I can say yes to anything. It would take something really fucking crazy for me to say no. Wayne [Coyne] really opened that door for me, because I was on the Bangerz tour at that time, where I was traveling the world. Your levels of fulfillment and depression are so drastic, because you’ve got that two hours where you’re fully captivated and reaching your fullest potential, and then when you come down from it, it’s so hard. Having him and having that psychedelic music changed everything for me.”

As for who Miley has in her band, her performance this past weekend at the Whiskey A Go-Go likely offers hints, as she did a very rockified version of The Cranberries' "Zombie," as part of Save Our Stages Fest. It looks like producer Andrew Watt, who most recently worked with Ozzy Osbourne and Post Malone is in Miley's band here, so it would be safe to assume he's producing the project.
