For the fans of Miley Cyrus, there is one bad news and one good news. So let us tell you the bad news first. Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson reportedly called it quits so no more bikini-clad TikTok dances by the pool and the good news is she has dropped a new theme song to herald in her new era.
At the midnight stroke on Friday, the pop songstress, 27, launched her new single “Midnight Sky” along with music video directed by Cyrus herself. Her new track dropped in just hours after news broke that after 10 months of dating she had split from Cody Simpson.
Just before her single dropped, the singer told fans on Instagram Live that the pair were “individually working on” themselves. However, Cyrus said that after a decade of friendship fans shouldn’t be surprised if they’re spotted out getting pizza together next week.
While the end of her relationship was fresh on peoples’ minds, it appears “Midnight Sky” may touch on her relationship with previous love, Liam Hemsworth.
On the track, the singer croons: “It’s been a long night and the mirror is tellin’ me to go home/ But it’s been a long time since I’ve felt this good on my own/ Lotta years went by with my hands tied up in your ropes/ Forever and ever, no more.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song before embarking on a decade-long on and off-again relationship before divorcing in 2019.
She also seemingly addresses her brief relationship with Kaitlynn Carter which she had after her split from Hemsworth, singing “See my lips on her mouth/ Everybody’s talking now, baby.” But “Midnight Sky” is not a love song, its Cyrus’ freedom song with the singer declaring in the chorus “I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone/ Oh no, I don’t need to be loved by you.”
The new track comes about after Cyrus released her emotional ballad “Slide Away” and her Charlies Angels collaboration, “Don’t Call Me Angel” with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey in 2019.
Cyrus previously teased the song’s subsequent release earlier this month when she posted a video on Instagram and gave fans a brief listen to “Midnight Sky” as the intro to the song played in the background.
