Whether she’ll be taking a ‘slow train’ or moving ‘like a rolling stone,’ Miley Cyrus will be using her vocal talents to raise money for Amnesty International by covering a Bob Dylan tune on the upcoming charity album, Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International.
Cyrus is no stranger to covers, with recent performances of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit and Poison’s Every Rose Has Its Thorn, and the former Hannah Montana has actually shown some considerable talent when it comes to belting out the lyrics that are usually associated with other voices.
MSNBC has confirmed that Cyrus has volunteered to do a Bob Dylan song on the tribute album, although there’s no word yet on which track she might be tackling. Other contributors include Adele, Sting, Ke$ha, Patti Smith, and The Dave Matthews Band.
While who will sing what remains a mystery for the most part at the moment, Adele will reportedly cover Make You Feel My Love and Ke$ha will sing Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.
Miley is either a big Dylan fan or she’s been preparing for this stint for a while because she also covered the legendary songsmith during a recent concert, and the practice could pay off in the long run. Dylan has frequently been labeled an ‘uncoverable’ artist because of his unique sound. Can a pop star capture his folk singer spirit?
Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International is expected to be released early next year, with proceeds going to the human rights organization.
