Miley Cyrus performed a moving acoustic rendition of her new single “Malibu” on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show Tuesday.
Cyrus easily flipped the breezy pop-rock track into an unplugged gem featuring the twangy interplay of two acoustic guitars. But Cyrus’ vocals remained at the forefront as she delivered the smoky verses and choruses of “Malibu” and paraded about an array of impressive vocal runs.
Cyrus also spoke with host Elvis Duran about her new single, noting the song’s lovestruck lyrics aren’t necessarily about a relationship, but rather self-care. “It can so easily be generalized into a love song,” Cyrus said. “I had to really heal myself individually, and then this song – about finding a new love with an old love, maybe you’re finding a new freedom – is also about individuality and the freedom in that. And realizing that certain doors lead you to one place you never imagined you would be, and if that can be through a person, that’s really awesome.”
“Malibu” marked a stark sonic shift for Cyrus, who returned to her rock and country roots after her hip-hop-heavy 2013 effort, Bangerz, and her 2015 psychedelic trip with the Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. The track will appear on Cyrus’ as-yet-untitled LP, which is expected to arrive later this year. Cyrus recorded her new album with producer/multi-instrumentalist Oren Yoel.
Miley Cyrus brought her beachy new single “Malibu” to the stage for the first time ever on Saturday at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango.
The “Bangerz” singer, dressed in a simple white tank top and shorts, had the stage decorated with plenty of rainbow balloons, just like the ones she carries in newly released music video, and a screen with the ocean behind her. Cyrus was a special guest performer at the show, which also included sets by her younger sister, Noah, as well as pop stars Katy Perry, Halsey and Zedd.
After performing her new single, Cyrus thanked her fans for their support of “Malibu,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 Chart.
Miley Cyrus has grown and evolved quite a bit since her days on Hannah Montana, but the 24-year-old pop star can still look back with a smile.
Cyrus stopped by Radio Disney on Thursday, where she was surprised with a video of her audition tape for the Disney Channel show from over 11 years ago, and she couldn’t get over how adorably young and precious she used to be.
“My t-shirt says, ‘I Should Have My Own TV Show,'” Cyrus noted of her audition tape ensemble, before lip syncing along with her younger self.
After a long wait, Miley Cyrus‘ new single “Malibu” is here in all its glory. The song debuted on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 radio show.
Cyrus and DianeMartel directed the video, which was also released Thursday.
The former Disney darling has spoken about the inspiration behind the track, namely her fiancé LiamHemsworth, and why the two ultimately had to take a break.
“I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, ‘I don’t recognize you anymore.’ We had to re-fall for each other,” she said in a candid interview with Billboard.
Miley Cyrus just shared artwork for her new single “Malibu,” and boy is it a change. She lies on grass in a turtleneck wearing her engagement ring. If the accessory wasn’t a hint enough that this new track is all about her beau, Hemsworth is credited for the photograph. The scene is a far cry from her last album art, 2015’s psychedelic-looking Dead Petz, which makes it all the more refreshing.
Cyrus has said that her forthcoming album (May 11), which is still unnamed, will hear her going back to her roots and incorporate some country twang. Post election, Cyrus has said that she hopes to reach conservatives and Republicans with her new music to enact change.
