Listen to Miley Cyrus' New, Raw Country Cover Song

Miley Cyrus may be deep into her "country Lana Del Rey backed by a choir"-esque new album, but the pop star also took some time to record a cover song for the new Free the Nipple film. 

Originally sang by '70s country-folk star Melanie Safka, "Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma" is a long-time favorite of Miley's and sees the singer embracing her country roots again. Over stripped-down, roots-y production, the star sings in a slow drawl that's a lovely reminder that Miley's still a Nashville gal at heart. Longtime supporters will remember a pre-Bangerz Cyrus covering the track in her "Backyard Sessions" YouTube series. Compare the two versions for yourself right here.

"Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma" is being used in new film Free the Nipple, a drama-comedy that aims to revolutionize the way the world looks at the female body. 

Miley's already put out her support for the "Free the Nipple" campaign on social media so the soundtrack contribution is more than an appropriate fit.
