+ Miley performs a new song at the Adult Swim upfront.
Miley Cyrus’ Happy Hippie Foundation is gaining some major buzz. Just a day after promoting the LGBT-focused project at her Adult Swim’s upfront concert on Wednesday night (May 13), Cyrus took to Facebook to unveil a pleasantly calming duet with fellow pop starlet Ariana Grande. No, there’s no EDM-infused breakdown. No, there’s no screeching vocals. This is just Miley + Ari (4ever) sitting on an inflatable couch, rocking cute onesies and covering Crowded House’s mega-hit “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
It’s nearly 4 minutes of easy breezy listening from the duo as they just jam the hell out of the song at night. They giggle. They flirt. They do all things you’d expect these two to do when they get together, expect maybe smoke a joint. Grande joins an impressive roster of Backyard artists, including Joan Jett and Laura Jane Grace.
Soooooo thankful for Ariana Grande for being a part of the #backyardsessions!! You're the sweetest little #happyhippie bear-mouse ever! Loooooove you The Happy Hippie Foundation #HappyHippiePresents #dontdreamitsover

BONUS: Cyrus performed with the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne at the Adult Swim upfront and debuted that brand-new song she previewed on Instagram earlier that day. At the event, Cyrus told the crowd that the song was called “Tiger Dreams” because Katy Perry already has a song called “Tiger.” We’re assuming she meant “Roar,” but whatever.
She also covered Khia’s “My Neck, My Back,” so feast your ears on this.
