She’s back! Miley Cyrus will release a new song titled Malibu next Friday.
Variety in the US broke the news of the new release, with Billboard then sharing a brand new interview with the singer where she talks new music, Donald Trump and her relationship with fiance with Liam Hemsworth.
The new song has been referred to as a “beachy anthem” with Variety claiming it was co-written and produced by Oren Yoel, who’s responsible for 2013’s Bangerz opener, “Adore You,”.
The news of new music began when Miley’s dad Billy Ray Tweeted a photo Miley sent him from the video shoot.
Speaking to Billboard about the new track, Miley revealed she wrote it on the way to The Voice.
“I drive myself everywhere, but that day I decided to Uber, and I was trying not to sing out loud because someone else was in the car.”
Asking if new album is pretty singer-songwriter-y, Cyrus added “Yeah. But not granola. I don’t listen to Ed Sheeran and John Mayer and stuff.”
She also spoke about her influences, with folk singer Melanie Safka [with whom Cyrus performed in 2015] referred as an influence.
“She did, and I grew up with her. But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [“Humble”]: “Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks.” I love that because it’s not “Come sit on my dick, suck on my cock.” I can’t listen to that anymore.”
“That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much “Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock” — I am so not that.”
“I was torn on whether I was going to work with certain producers that I really like. But I feel if we’re not on the same page politically … My record is political, but the sound bite doesn’t stop there.”
“Because you can write something beautiful and you know E! News will ruin our lives and say, “This is a political record.”
Because then I’m the Dixie Chicks and I’m getting my album smashed in the streets, and that’s not what I want. I want to talk to people in a compassionate, understanding way — which people aren’t doing.”
Miley Cyrus will release her new track Malibu next Friday globally.
