Official Album Leak Endless Summer Vacation By Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Endless Summer Vacation Reddit News Leaked Released at the tail-end of the first pandemic year, Miley Cyrus’s 2020 album, Plastic Hearts, feels like a lifetime ago. Now, with the announcement of new music, and a new single stuffed with potential easter eggs, Miley’s next musical phase looks like it will be a departure from what we’ve seen of the singer so far.
Teasing the new album with a series of posters promising ‘NEW YEAR, NEW MILEY’ appearing around Los Angeles, Endless Summer Vacation is being teased as a new era for Cyrus. The album is a “love letter to L.A.,” a press release said, adding that Cyrus’ album is “a reflection of the strength she’s found in focusing on both her physical and mental well-being”. Could this mean chapter-closed on her “Malibu” period, widely seen as being linked to ex-husband Liam Hemsworth?
Album cover art has already been released and shows Cyrus, sporting sunglasses, hanging from a trapeze in a leather bodysuit against a sun-hit blue sky background. Utilising our A-level English-level criticism, we’d guess the cover reflects Cyrus’ newfound comfort and confidence in both herself and life. She isn’t holding onto the bar for dear life, but rather with an easy-assured grip, facing us straight-on.
Later, she updated her Spotify bio to contain the phrase, and the words have also since appeared in her Twitter bio.
Naturally, fan speculation over Endless Summer Vacation is rife, and some believe the artist could be working with Mike Will again, who produced her 2013 album BANGERZ. The pair were recently seen together in what appeared to be a studio in an Instagram post by Rae Sremmurd, along with the caption “EAR DRUMMERS & HEAD BANGERZ”.
What do we know about the album?
Details on the album are scarce, but we do know it was recorded in Los Angeles and features production from Greg Kurstin, Tyler Johnson, and Kid Harpoon. Endless Summer Vacation was announced with a short video trailer, which shows Cyrus poolside and cuts between shots of her and the blue sky and water that surround her. Despite coming to us in March, the vibe seems to be full summer and those long days that drift into long nights.
The album’s lead single “Flowers” came out on 13 January, and looked to delve into the aftermath of her relationship to Hemsworth who she divorced in 2020. Also, what are the chances – the release coincided with Liam Hemsworth’s birthday.
Lines include “We were good, we were gold/ Kind of dream that can’t be sold / We were right ’til we weren’t / Built a home and watched it burn”, which references their shared home which burned down in 2018.
But rather than focus on the spicy details of their decision to split, the single, much like the press release for her album states, focuses on the self-love and growth she’s experienced since. The lines ‘I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand / Talk to myself for hours / Say things you don’t understand / I can take myself dancing / And I can hold my own hand / Yeah, I can love me better than you can’ scream: I’m the best partner I could ask for.
When can we expect it?
Good news: we have a confirmed release date for the album and thankfully it’s not too long a wait. Miley Cyrus’s Endless Summer Vacation is out 10 March.
