Miley Cyrus has already admitted that her new album was inspired by her relationship with Liam Hemsworth, which is pretty darn awesome considering the two are absolutely adorable together. But now that the singer has revealed more details about her new music, fans are shocked to find out that she’s taking on an entirely new sound.
In the 24-year-old’s new interview with Billboard magazine, she first revealed that she’ll be dropping “Malibu,” the first single off of her album, on May 11, then went on to admit, “This record is a reflection of the fact that yes, I don’t give a f*ck, but right now is not a time to not give a f*ck about people.” Okay, sure.
But even more interesting, her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, added, “This is Miley leaning into her roots more than I’ve ever heard.” Many fans are interpreting that as a return to her country roots. With rumors buzzing that Taylor Swift may be making a similar move while in Nashville (not to mention a collab by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw as well as Shania Twain’s new album), this may be one heck of a year for country music fans.
And while there are plenty of folks thrilled about Miley’s possible new country record…
There are others that are not so thrilled about Cyrus’s new point of view…
It looks like, for now, we’ll just have to wait and see what exactly Miley Cyrus will be bringing us with her new music. Will it be less wild Miley and more subdued Cyrus? Whatever it is, her new music will definitely get strong reactions one way or another, if the response to her interview is any indication.
What do you think Miley Cyrus’s new music will/should sound like? Let us know @BritandCo!
