Miley Cyrus: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

22 420 Weergaven 2,3 mln.

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Miley Cyrus has always understood that music is theater. So it's no surprise that, visiting the imaginative space that is the Tiny Desk, she transforms it into something both fantastical and true to her topsy-turvy Mileyness.
Cyrus ruled preteen hearts on the small screen before mastering pop stardom's big stages, and throughout her career she's played with sound and image in unexpected and even controversial ways. And she's never balanced pop's glorious artifice with her own soulful authenticity more self-assuredly than she does on her latest album, the rock and roll manifesto Plastic Hearts.
Here, the scene opens with Cyrus, dressed head to toe in rock-star faux fur, in what looks like a teenage girl's bedroom. But the perspective in this pink-and-purple space feels a little ... odd. As Cyrus sings, it becomes clear that this is her Wonderland - like Alice full of magical cake, she's grown to exceed her surroundings. By the end of this three-song set, Cyrus reveals that it's the adolescent enclave that grew too small for her, not the other way around.
The songs Cyrus offers are as direct and affecting as the set is whimsical. Cyrus has lately proven herself one of pop's great interpretive vocalists, and she scores another triumph with her version of Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You," a hazy psychedelic anthem that she infuses with just the edge of the next day's hangover. The two songs from Plastic Hearts that follow are her own bids at classic-rock timelessness. In "Golden G-String" Cyrus assesses her own life in the spotlight with Leonard Cohen-esque charm. And "Prisoner" is the power ballad that lets Cyrus really break out - as she leaves the tiny room - just a box, it turns out, on a soundstage - and joins her band, she's as free and self-confident as she's ever been.

    I can't understand something. Normally in Tiny Desk, artists try to give to the public a more real, closer and familiar atmosphere. So why does Miley have to come off as a rock star? When we all know that she is. I would have liked to see her more real and less public figure.

    For everyone talking about how her voice has matured!! You have to watch the interview with her and joe Rogan!! She talks about how her voice has changed after traumatic experiences and how it has developed. She actually almost lost her voice and had to have surgery!!! It’s cool to listen to her perception on how her sound has changed

    Tbh I've always found her voice super annoying so I haven't really followed her evolution but I kind of love this rock n roll thing she's got here ! If this was the kind of stuff she released more regularly I would definitely pay more attention ! Also the set is so cool, love the literal use of the word "tiny" lol
