Miley Cyrus Proclaims New Album Plastic Hearts
Miley Cyrus has announced her new album Plastic Hearts. It’s out November 27 and includes her recent single “Midnight Sky,” plus her recent live covers of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and the Cranberries’ “Zombie.” She released a handwritten letter about the new album, which you can find in full below.
“I began this album over 2 years ago,” she wrote. “Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record—its songs/sounds but my whole fucking life. 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 music’s relevance because everything had changed.”
She wrote that losing her home in a 2018 California wildfire informed the album. “Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself,” she continued. “I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”
Cyrus also references the EP series she began with the release of the She Is Coming EP, saying it “never felt right” to continue telling her story in that format. “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,’” she wrote. “But it was far from that.” She concludes the note with the album’s release date and the words, “Think you’ll love it, & if you don’t, fuck you.”
After premiering “Midnight Sky” with a self-directed video, she performed the song at MTV’s Video Music Awards. Though she’s discussed a new album on the way, she hasn’t yet shared release plans for her next album. Her most recent album was 2017’s Younger Now.
It’s worth noting that the font and design of Cyrus’ new album cover looks pretty similar to the Plasmatics’ album covers.
