In a bit of a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your afternoon.

Now this is sure to upset a few Smiths fans… Miley Cyrus has covered The Smiths famous track 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' while on-stage in Belfast. The singer showed off her country vocals while performing the indie anthem wearing an eye printed jacket.

Of course, while singing the track (really well actually) Miley filmed herself and the crowd to make an Instagram video. She also gets her fans to sing along to the bit Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel sing in cult romance movie '500 Days Of Summer'.

Miley's no stranger to unexpected covers, the controversial popstress performed Arctic Monkeys' 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?' as an encore after her MTV Unplugged session - yep the one Madonna turned up for - but the track was never aired. It's definitely worth checking out - even if you're not a Miley fan.

The singer's even tackled Fleetwood Mac, belting out an emotional version of the hit 'Landslide' in tribute to her late dog Floyd.

'It's going to be hard for me to do this next song. I'm not sounding like myself, and I'm not feeling like myself,' she said while introducing the cover. 'I'm sure you guys already know the reason I'm upset. My dog … I shouldn't say he was my favourite, but he was my favourite. He passed away.'
