It’s time to get out your bathing suits and sunscreen because summer vacation just came early.
Months after dropping her hit “Flowers”, Miley Cyrus has officially dropped her eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation. Alongside the album’s release, Cyrus dropped the official music video for her new track, “River.”
In a recent clip, Cyrus gave her insights about her newly released album, saying, “When it comes to the sequencing of Endless Summer Vacation, I divided it by two parts: AM and PM- to kind of represent almost like an act. The AM to me is representing the morning time, where there is a buzz and an energy and there’s a potential of new possibilities. It’s a new day. And in the nighttime, it feels like there is a slinky, seedines and kind of a grime, but a glamour at the same time. In the evening, it’s a great time for rest, a time to recover-or it’s a time to go out and experience the wild side. Los Angeles, there is a certain energy to the night that you can kind of feel trouble boil up to the surface, and it is very inspiring to me.”
Recorded in Los Angeles and produced with Mike WiLL Made-It, Greg Kurstin, Kid Harpoon, and Tyler Johnson, Cyrus describes this album as a love letter to LA. While most of Cyrus’s singles are vocally solo, she is accompanied by Brandi Carlile and Sia on “Thousand Miles” and “Muddy Feet.”
In addition to her newest album, the singer teamed up with Disney+ to release her “Endless Summer Vacation” (Backyard Sessions), which gives even more insights into her latest album.
Endless Summer Vacation is available now to stream everywhere.
