Cyrus’s cover of “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” is one of 73 tracks included on the four-disc set (76 if you buy the digital download), whose earnings will be donated to the human rights organization Amnesty International.
Electro-pop star [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ke$ha[/lastfm], best known for making the kids dance with dirty beats, catchy lyrics, glitter guns and auto-tune (*gasp*), strips away all of the studio excess found in much of today’s pop music and recorded a very raw version of Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” off of his 1963 album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.
