Is Miley Cyrus Dropping New Music?
Miley’s exciting music news was first announced during her New Year’s Eve special with her godmother Dolly Parton on December 31, 2022. The “Wrecking Ball” singer shared two teasers for the track during the show, which also included Miley hosting and performing multiple songs with other musicians in the program.
Following the announcement, a countdown later appeared on her official website, with a new countdown now ticking down to the single’s release date on January 13 — which also happens to be the date of her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth‘s birthday. Coincidence? We think not!
The Hannah Montana star’s most recent studio album was 2020’s Plastic Hearts, which was largely about her relationship with her ex-husband. While speaking on Zane Lowe‘s Apple Music podcast, Miley said she put her feelings about the splits into her music.
“I also felt like I kind of shut down because it was kind of, respectfully, below me to engage with the press and the media at that time,” she recalled. “It felt like I would rather be able to articulate this experience in a poetic way that also I can put back into my art. I never really have engaged. I’ve only played with the public and the perception in that way.”
She also got real about how her new era of music represents the major changes in her life.
“I’m not sure I love change because change can be very painful. I have a very healthy relationship and acceptance of it, but I definitely am not like bring it on, because it frigging hurts sometimes,” Miley explained. “This is just a chapter of my life. I feel like in general, as a culture, we’re all feeling like it’s time to express our own narrative and regain that control of who we are and what’s acceptable to us and what is not. I think in times, that’s maybe why I’ve created worlds like this. This is kind of my idea of living with my head in the clouds of my own fantasy and the world that I want to create.”
