One of our favorite things about Miley Cyrus' just-released fourth studio album is that despite the young singer's genre-mashing strides into arena rock, pop, and hip-hop, she never loses her country twang. Case in point: "Wrecking Ball." Despite its top-40 power ballad production, the seconds single off of Bangerz is... well, a total "twang-er" at heart.
That's why we love this new mashup of the recent hit with Mumford & Sons' "Little Lion Man." Setting Miley's explosive breakup anthem vocals on top of the Mumford boys' quick-strumming transforms the song from a tragic pop cryfest into some grade-A, man-and-his-pickup bluegrass worth hollerin' over faster'n a greased-up junebug on the Fourth o' July. (What, we never said folksy metaphors were our forte.)
Sit back, relax, listen. And repeat.
