Question Kitchen wall backerboard question

We will soon be tearing out all of the old cabinets (base and wall) and redoing them. This is a strange wall in that it used to be a doorway and when they converted it to a straight wall they just basically attached everything (cabinets, fiberglass backsplash board and countertop) right to the studs without any drywall or plaster or anything.

We are planning on tiling the exposed wall up to about 4' and then it will be painted the rest of the way to the ceiling. What should we put up on the walls that will work as a base for both the tiles and paint? Can we use regular drywall? Greenboard? We are having a Silestone countertop installed with a 4" backsplash and the sink is on a different wall so this wall will have minimal water exposure.

Thanks in advance.

Plain old drywall will work fine for the backsplash area.
