Miley Records Melanie!
Miley records "Look What They've Done to My Song", for Lina Esco's upcoming film "Free The Nipple", a Sundance Select satire to screen in 2015. Cyrus recorded the song last August in two takes. She’s performed “Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma” before, but this version—produced by Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes—sounds different. “It’s more rock ‘n’ roll,” Esco says. “It’s very Johnny Cash. Her voice is so raw, and the song is so raw.” Read the Variety article here!
Melanie Safka first attracted national attention when she stepped onto the stage at Woodstock, the summer of '69. As dawn broke, and rain began to fall, she performed on a stage that transformed a generation and changed music forever.
