Miley Cyrus has teamed up with Mark Ronson and Sean Ono Lennon to release a Christmas cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s song ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’
The original version, released in 1977, was the seventh single release by Lennon outside his work with the Beatles and included a contribution from the Harlem Community Choir in what was also used as a protest song against the Vietnam war.
Now, Cyrus has worked alongside Ronson and the son of John Lennon to put their own spin on the track. Joining Jimmy Fallon on his show, Cyrus discussed the recording process and added that Sean’s voice is “just so special and I think more than just inheriting the voice or the way he looks or whatever, it’s about the magic he has.
She added: “I think that’s what he’s inherited more than anything. It’s this radiant magic.”
