Miley Cyrus’ latest Backyard Session is a cover of The Replacements’ “Androgynous”—a fitting track to release in conjunction with Cyrus’ just-launched Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit she founded to fight “injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations.”
Joan Jett (who Cyrus paired with on another Backyard Session performance of “Different”) and Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace join Cyrus for the lively rendition of the track, which Jett previously covered on 2006’s Sinner. Although Jett’s cover was an enjoyable take on the song, there’s a certain magic to watching not just one but three music icons performing it together on one stage—and looking delighted to be there, to boot.
Cyrus posted the video on her Facebook page, where viewers are encouraged to donate to the foundation. Watch the cover below.
More #backyardsessions videos coming today!! Huge thank you to Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and #JoanJett of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts for lending their voices and helping me launch The Happy Hippie Foundation. Find out more at happyhippies.org #HappyHippiePresents #Androgynous #HappyHippie
