Miley Cyrus will be among several famous artists to appear on Amnesty International’s tribute album dedicated to Bob Dylan. The album, Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, will be available early in 2012. Other artists featured on the album include Ke$ha, Adele, and Sting.
Covering classic rock is not new territory for Miley. The singer has performed covers of “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” by Poison and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana. Both covers had critics, but Bret Michaels of Poison sang (no pun intended) Miley’s praises for her cover.
We’re a little skeptical of this album. Can pop princesses such as Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus really do justice to a classic like Bob Dylan? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
