It’s been almost three years since Miley Cyrus has released an album. Three years! We’ve watched Miley transform before our eyes, month after month, without any music to provide guidance. We’ve seen her TikToks, followed her relationship with Cody Simpson and picked our jaws off the ground after listening to her classic rock covers. And now, fans and stans were surprised at midnight on October 23rd by an Instagram post. Miley Cyrus’s seventh album, Plastic Hearts, will be released on November 27th, 2020.
Her album announcement came at the end of a long Instagram caption, detailing the history of the highly-anticipated album. She notes that this album’s inception was over two years ago, but it was erased. She writes, “I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.” Though sad, Cyrus seems to remain unscathed. Her change of heart and growth throughout this period changed the relevancy of the music. She was given another shot at this album. We'll be given a deeper dive into Cyrus' life for the past two years, with an emphasis on her strength and power through challenging times. 2020 has been full of never-ending bad news, but maybe Miley will release the anthem to lead us out of the darkness.
She's made music headlines recently performing on MTV’s Backyard Sessions, Youtube Music’s Save Our Stages Event, and the iHeart Music Festival. Performing iconic hits such as Britney Spears’ “Gimme More,” Blondie’s “Heart of Glass,” and The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry,” Miley has teased listeners with her iconic vocal range and her exploration of different genres.
We look forward to experiencing Cyrus’s Plastic Hearts on November 27th. Until then, we’ll be jamming out to her most recent classic rock cover “Zombie” by the Cranberries and the rest of her new releases. We encourage you to dive into Miley’s new sound and wait on the edge of your seat for her upcoming album.
