Miley Cyrus Releases New Album “Plastic Hearts”: Streaming
- American singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus released her seventh studio album “Plastic Hearts” on November 27, 2020 via RCA Records.
The album comprises of 12-track (digital edition 15-track), featuring guest appearances from Dua Lipa, Billy Idol, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks. It is her first LP in three years.
Produced by Louis Bell, The Monsters & Strangerz, Happy Perez, Mark Ronson, Andrew Watt and Andrew Wyatt.
Initially, the album title was “She Is Miley Cyrus”, and she planed to be preceded by three EPs “She Is Coming”, “She Is Here”, and “She Is Everything”.
She described the three EPs to be "different [chapters] to a trilogy" that together form the full-length record.
But only the EP “She Is Coming” was released due to the loss of her house including recording data of the EPs in a California wildfire, and the album title was changed to “Plastic Hearts”.
Miley Cyrus said of the album in a statement, “If you're reading this… know that I fucking love and appreciate you on the deepest level. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole fucking 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.
Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn't let go of for myself.
I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.
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. But it never felt right to release my “story” (each record being 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.
In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts.”
The album features '80s rock sound vibe. She told Zane Lowe of Apple Music 1, “I actually used making this record as a threat to my team at one point. Like after the last record I was like listen, I'm gonna try pop one more time and if i feel like I just can't sleep at night with it, I'm gonna make a rock record and they were like well, then why are you waiting, you never wait, just do it and so I was like, you're right. I don't know, I don't know why I'm like threatening you with a record that feels like the right next step to me. I just thought again, you know, I should just kind of keep trying going with pop and go with what I know, but that's not who I am, so again, I just went and started making a rock record.”
