Miley Cyrus' 'Plastic Hearts' Album Details: Release Date, Song Titles, & More
Miley Cyrus is ready to share her story with the world through new music. After months and months of teasing her upcoming album, Cyrus announced on Friday, Oct. 23, that she's scrapping her She Is Miley Cyrus record that fans were waiting for and, instead, will drop Plastic Hearts, a different record, on Nov. 27, for very personal reasons. Thanks to the singer's candidness, we've compiled all of Miley Cyrus' Plastic Hearts album details that will have you pumped up for Cyrus' most personal era yet.
Cyrus opened up in an Instagram post on Oct. 23, where she shared the emotional journey to creating the album. "I began this album over 2 years ago," she wrote. "Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole f*cking life. But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance.Because EVERYTHING had changed."
Luckily, through those changes — which included Cyrus' divorce from Liam Hemsworth and the loss of their Malibu home in the Woosley Fires — Cyrus was able to find a lot of inspiration. Now, the details of her album will have you so jazzed, so here's what we know.
Miley Cyrus' Album Title & Inspiration
Cyrus announced the new title of her upcoming album at the end of her lengthy Instagram post, sharing that it's titled Plastic Hearts. She explained that the record is basically a book about her life and the lessons she's learned.
"Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series I was working on at the time," she wrote. "But it never felt right to release my 'story' (each record being a continual autobiography) with a huge chapter missing.If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it 'The Beginning' which usually when something is over we call it 'The End'. But it was far from that."
Miley Cyrus' Plastic Hearts Tracklist
Cyrus shared the tracklist for Plastic Hearts to Instagram on Nov. 13. Not only will the album feature her most recent single "Midnight Sky" and the two live covers of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and the Cranberries’ “Zombie," but the record will feature collabs with Billy Idol, Joan Jett, and Dua Lipa.
