Miley Cyrus has released a happy cover of NIN’s “Head Like a Hole.” No, really.

If you’re a fan of Black Mirror, you might have seen the episode featuring Miley Cyrus. In it, Miley, playing a character named “Ashley O,” performed cover of “Head Like a Hole” by Nine Inch Nails. Weird, but okay.

Now, Miley-as-Ashley-O has issued a video for a song she called “On a Roll.” which is a thinly-veiled re-do of “Head Like a Hole.” And it’s strangely…positive.

Here’s a sample of the new lyrics: “Hey there, whoah-ho, I’m on a roll/Riding so high, achieving my goals / I’m so stoked on ambition and verve / I’m gonna get what I deserve.”

Um, okay.
