Watch Paul Dempsey’s perfect cover of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’

If you thought Bruce Springsteen’s cover of Lorde’s ‘Royals’ was something – just wait till you hear Paul Dempsey’s version of Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’.

The Something For Kate frontman performed the hit song for the “Song Remains The Same” segment on Triple M, a station renowned for its support of female pop stars. Dempsey’s acoustic version of the Bangerz cut transforms ‘Wrecking Ball’ from pop song to a gut-wrenching ballad that, frankly, wouldn’t sound out of place on in a Something For Kate setlist.

To mark their 20th anniversary this year Something For Kate will be re-releasing their back-catalogue on vinyl, deluxe CD and iTunes and embarking on a national tour July/August. Click here for the full dates.
