Miley Cyrus has been making the news EVERYWHERE. Whether it's by shaking her butt on an awards show, or getting naked for the sake of art, she is going to be in every direction you look. Taking advantage of this, Haim have made whatever direction you look a little brighter by covering Miley's latest, the emotional "Wrecking Ball". Like Ellie Goulding's "Mirrors" cover, "Wrecking Ball" has emerged from the famed BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge sessions. However, I think this cover is WAY better. But Haim are one of my favorite bands, so I might be just a bit biased.

Their cover starts out sounding not unlike the original, with the first couple of lyrics sounding so close to Miley's that I thought I might've actually played the original. But that's just their similar vocal styles. The song proceeds to cover everything in an absolutely stunning manner. The music, unlike the vocals, sound completely unique to the trio, electric guitar and synth combinations that coalesce to become the glorious cover that this is.

Haim's new album, Days Are Gone, comes out next Tuesday, September 30th!
