Watch: Miley Cyrus covers Arctic Monkeys in 'Unplugged' outtake

It's been a whole week since MTV premiered Miley Cyrus' much-hyped installment in its "Unplugged" series, which means the time clearly has come for bonus content.

The network doled some out early Thursday in the form of "Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged & Uncensored," an online version of the special that it says drew 1 million television viewers on Jan. 29, the highest rating for an episode of "Unplugged" in a decade.

On the broadcast, Cyrus complemented country-fied versions of tunes from her 2013 album "Bangerz" -- including a take on "We Can't Stop" featuring Madonna -- with a boot-scooting rendition of Dolly Parton's "Jolene."

But the singer also did a cover of Arctic Monkeys' "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High" that didn't make the original cut. It's in the new online edition, though, and it's pretty good, with a strong vocal, a slinky groove and plenty of the lewd gestures you'd expect from a program with the word "uncensored" in the title.

Watch it below.
