Miley Cyrus has signed a new record deal with Columbia Records, sources tell Billboard. She was previously signed to RCA Records for three albums. Both labels are owned by Sony Music.
A source close to the matter says the signing comes after Columbia chairman/CEO Ron Perry personally courted Cyrus, who released her well-received seventh studio album Plastic Hearts on RCA in November. The two have had a long relationship, the source says, as Perry has also been close with Cyrus’ manager Adam Leber of Maverick Management, her mother, Tish Cyrus, and her attorney, Bill Sobel.
Fresh off topping the rock chart this week with Plastic Hearts, Miley Cyrus is set to appear on the newest episode of the YouTube series, Released.
She’ll be debuting a never-before-seen live performance of her Dua Lipa duet, “Prisoner,” as well as sharing behind-the-scenes tidbits from the making of her album.
Miley will also be joined on the episode by Billy Idol, who collaborated with her on the Plastic Hearts track “Night Crawling.” He’ll interview her about her new era, artists that inspire her and more.
Miley Cyrus’ rock-flavored new album Plastic Hearts becomes her first entry on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, debuting at No. 1 on the list dated Dec. 12.
Plastic Hearts bows with 60,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 3, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Of that sum, 20,000 units are from album sales.
Cyrus is the fourth solo woman to lead Top Rock Albums in 2020, following Fiona Apple (Fetch the Bolt Cutters, May 2), Hayley Williams(Petals for Armor, May 23) and Alanis Morissette (Such Pretty Forks in the Road (Aug. 15). That’s the most solo women at No. 1 in a single year since 2012, when five women (Lana Del Rey, Apple, Morissette, Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt) led.
Miley talks about her mom cutting her hair in quarantine and giving her the family mullet, celebrating her dad’s birthday, her hit song Party in the USA being back on the charts after Joe Biden’s election victory, we sent her an early and very difficult to open gift for the holidays, her new album Plastic Hearts which was just named the #1 Rock album in the country, and she goes head-to-head with a superfan in a round of “Who Knows Miley?”

Along with posting the song names, Cyrus revealed the album’s featured collaborators, including Dua Lipa (on the song “Prisoner”), Billy Idol (on “Night Crawling”), and Joan Jett (on “Bad Karma”). Absent from the tracklist are Cyrus’ popular covers of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and the Cranberries’ “Zombie,” which were originally reported to be part of the new album.
So far Cyrus has released one single from Plastic Hearts, “Midnight Sky.” She also released “Edge of Midnight,” a fan-made remix of the track that mashed it up with Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen.” Plastic Hearts will arrive in place of two EPs that Cyrus planned to release this year and later canceled after undergoing vocal cord surgery; last year, she teased those projects with the single “Slide Away.”

Over the last few years, we’ve seen Miley Cyrus dip her toes into the rock world, but it appears she’s ready to dive in fully with her next studio album.
More or less confirming what some had suspected, Cyrus told a fan who tweeted at her with a Good Charlotte nod, “Girls don’t want boyfriends, girls want Miley Cyrus to release an entire rock album,” “Fuck yes! Your wish is my command baby.”
Because it’s not enough for just one vintage Stevie Nicks song to have reentered the zeitgeist (see: the TikTok “Dreams” resurgence), Miley Cyrus is doing her best to make sure that history quickly repeats itself by pushing another Nicks favorite, “Edge of Seventeen,” back into public prominence.
Late Thursday night, Miley released what is officially deemed “Edge of Midnight (Midnight Sky Remix),” a track that mashes up her own current single, “Midnight Sky,” a top 20 hit released in August, with “Edge of Seventeen,” the hit that appeared on Nicks’ first solo album, “Bella Donna,” back in 1981.
Although no details were immediately released about the track apart from the two singers’ respective tweets, it does appear that Nicks participated in the remix to the extent of lending her voice to Cyrus’ new song, too, as it appears in the conjoined mix, which starts off with Waddy Wachtel’s unmistakable 16th-note guitar riff.
“Stevie Nicks has always been my idol & an inspiration. It’s an honor to now call her my friend and collaborator,” Cyrus wrote on Instagram. Among the immediate responses were triply repeated fire emoji from fan Kacey Musgraves. Nicks herself posted: “Miley…Magical! Loved singing with her!”
Noah and Miley Cyrus have released their live cover of Noah’s ballad “I Got So High That I Saw Jesus” on Monday morning (Oct. 26). “No one knows how excited we are to be releasing something together for the very first time,” Noah wrote. “thank u sissy for singing with me and as always making it sound effortlessly beautiful.”
While it’s hard to believe this is the first time the siblings have released something together, it’s about time because their voices beautifully compliment each other on the stripped-down piano and voice version of the tune from Noah’s EP The End of Everything. It’s been a very busy summer for the Cyrus sibs, with Noah performing “This Is Us” with Jimmy Allen at the CMT Music Awards, as well as releasing a cover of Mac Miller’s “Dunno” for charity and teaming up with Diplo for “On Mine.”
Miley’s been grinding away during the pandemic lockdown as well, chatting with Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris about the importance of voting in the Nov. 3 presidential election last week, announcing a new album, Plastic Hearts, releasing a moving cover of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe,” teasing a Metallica covers album and dropping her long-anticipated MTV Unplugged special.
