Who knew Bob Dylan’s music had magical powers to turn flashy, attention-seeking pop stars into sensitive warblers? After Ke$ha showed a softer, glitter-less side by covering “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” for the Bob Dylan tribute album Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, next up is Miley Cyrus, who takes on “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.” Watch the 19-year-old pop star record her tribute to the iconic singer-songwriter in her new video below.
Miley Cyrus – “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go”
The cover has a lovely, more relaxed arrangement of Dylan’s original song, and Miley sounds more raw and subtle than she’s ever sounded before. (See, Miley? You don’t need gigantic bird wings or age-inappropriate outfits in order to get people talking.)
