Listen: Sondre Lerche – “Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus Cover)”

Santa Claus and Sondre Lerche aren’t the same person (that we’re aware of anyway), but one would be forgiven for getting the two of them confused. Over the last few years, Lerche has made it his business to give fans a bit of a end-of-year treat via a specially recorded cover. (You might recall is excellent Owen Palett cover.) This year, the musican tackled—what else?—Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”

“As has become tradition, here is my Christmas gift to you in the shape of a cover of a song from the year that’s about to end,” says Lerche. “Of the many songs I’ve loved this year (check out my 2013 playlist), I had trouble finding one that I felt truly motivated to interpret. So while Wrecking Ball may not be my very favorite song of 2013, it turned out to be the one I would most like to play at 3 am last night. It was my friend, producer and drummer on this recording, Matias Tellez, who suggested we try a little Miley Cyrus this season. We recorded it live at Skogen, Matias’ studio in Bergen where half of my next record is recorded (and where Matias also recorded one of the best records of the year with his band Young Dreams). It’s a robust little fucker. A song that can withstand inhumane acts of twerking, overexposure, and yet another unwarranted cover. Please accept this gift as a token of my appreciation of you fantastic followers and/or fan. There’s so much I cannot wait to share in 2014. This will be our year. Much love and Happy Holidays to all.”
