Miley Performs Beautiful Acoustic Cover of ‘Malibu’ for Elvis Duran

Miley is making the press rounds today, and her latest stop is on Elvis Duran, where the provocative pop star turned folksy singer-songwriter did an acoustic set of her new single, “Malibu.”

The set gave Cyrus a chance to show off her powerful, smoky vocals, and we actually think “Malibu” might be even better stripped down. She dressed in a Joanne-era hat and floral dress, and her performance took us back to one of our favorite Miley moments of all time: her Backyard Sessions “Jolene” cover, naturally (available below).

Rumor has it this mellow vibe is indicative of Cyrus’ forthcoming album, which we’re guessing is the former Disney star’s take on a Joanne career chapter. She recently told Billboard that her goal. with new music isn’t to please the masses: “My main concern isn’t radio. I truly don’t even listen to it.”

Take a listen to the earthy rendition of “Malibu” below:

 

If you’re a true fan, you’ll no doubt have already found your way to this video on your own, but in case you’re in a pinch and need it now:
