Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson performed together on last night’s Saturday Night Live. The pair recently collaborated on Ronson’s new track ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart‘, along with the cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’. The legendary Beatle’s son Sean Ono Lennon also worked on the new version of the enduring festive hit. You can watch the latter performance above.
Now, Ronson and Cyrus have aired the two songs during an appearance on Saturday Night Live. After being introduced by host Matt Damon, the musicians performed ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ – backed by strings and car chase footage that features in the single’s official video. Later, they returned to the stage with ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ and were joined by Sean Ono Lennon on backing vocals and guitar.
Elsewhere on the show, Matt Damon played a Weezer super fan in a sketch, while another skit saw British Prime Minister Theresa May interview Harry Potter’s Lord Voldemort and former British PM David Cameron.
Meanwhile, Mark Ronson recently revealed that his forthcoming solo album will feature a guest appearance from Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker. “We have a song that we wrote together for my record called ‘Laurie’ that we’re working on,” the musician and producer told NME.
Ronson also revealed that he had heard some of Tame Impala’s new music, saying that it “sounded amazing – like that’s a surprise to anyone. It’s pretty mind-blowing and great.”
Ronson also discussed how he no longer feels the pressure to recreate the success of 2014 hit single ‘Uptown Funk’. “I think there was no… thing in my mind of, ‘Oh, I’ve gotta follow ‘Uptown Funk’,” he said. “I think I fell into that trap with a few singles and s_t that I put out since then, but this feels like a different project.”
