Miley Cyrus is giving fans the first taste of her forthcoming album, She Is Miley Cyrus, with the release of her new song “Midnight Sky” on Friday, August 14.
The pop superstar debuted the new dreamy, disco-tinged, pop track with a self-directed music video to accompany it. The song was inspired by the past year of her life.
You can hear the song and watch the new music video below.
In creating the song and video, Miley drew from strong female musical icons, like Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, and Debbie Harry, who have always been so generous, and have been her greatest allies and inspiration. The video showcases Miley as her true self: unapologetic, diverse, sexy, confident, experimental, and strong.
The video takes viewers through Miley’s creative vision which displays her complete control of the narrative often told through the mouths of the media. Miley is at peace with who she is and has nothing to prove. As a musician she continues to push boundaries and experiment with her sound and look. Miley has proven to be many things, but boring is not one of them.
“Midnight Sky” signifies the next step in her artistic evolution.
Although Cyrus has not yet announced the release date for her forthcoming seventh studio album, She Is Miley Cyrus, the new album will follow her 2019 EP, She Is Coming.
