Miley Cyrus fans have something special to look forward to this year: a new album — and now we have our first single. On Jan. 12, Cyrus dropped the track “Flowers” along with the accompanying music video. The song is an exuberant ode to self-love, with the refrain “I can love me better than you can” hammering home Cyrus’s message: she’s not sacrificing her peace for anyone.
She also seems to reference ex-husband Liam Hemsworth in the first verse. “We were right ’til we weren’t / Built a home and watched it burn,” she sings, which seems to refer to the home she and Hemsworth shared in Malibu that was destroyed by the 2018 Woosley Fire. She and Hemsworth met in 2009, dated on and off for a decade, and tied the knot in 2018 before separating in 2019. “Flowers” wouldn’t the first time she’s mentioned Hemsworth in song. Here, though, she seems happier to be on her own than ever before.
During “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party,” which aired on NBC and Peacock on Dec. 31, Cyrus told the world that “Flowers” was on its way. The “Wrecking Ball” singer also shared teasers of the upcoming track on Instagram captioned, “NEW YEAR, NEW MILEY, NEW SINGLE. FLOWERS JANUARY 13,” though the song wound up coming a day before.
But that’s not the only thing she revealed. On Jan. 5, Cyrus released a trailer unveiling the title of her forthcoming eighth studio album and its release date. According to a press release obtained by News JoJo, “Endless Summer Vacation” is described as “a reflection of the strength [Cyrus] found in focusing on both her physical and mental well-being.” The album was recorded in Los Angeles and is billed as the singer’s “love letter to LA.”
The last studio album Cyrus released was 2020’s “Plastic Hearts.” She also released “Attention: Miley Live” in April 2022. Back in November, the “Midnight Sky” singer appeared to reunite with music producer Mike WiLL Made-It, whom she previously worked with on her 2013 album, “Bangerz,” in the studio. While she didn’t confirm that she was working on new music, around the same time, music duo Rae Sremmurd shared photos of Cyrus singing with them on Instagram. (The photos also included Made-It.) They captioned their post, “EAR DRUMMERS & HEAD BANGERZ!”
As we wait for more details, watch the “Flowers” video below and read ahead for everything else we know about her upcoming project.
