She Is Coming, after all.
While making a strong case for this present musical moment to be declared her best era to date with a string of sensational live covers and, of course, the incredible “Midnight Sky,” Miley Cyrus is finally formally announcing the album in support of said era – and it’s called Plastic Hearts.
The record is due out on November 27, and includes “Midnight Sky,” as well as her live cover of Blondie‘s “Heart of Glass,” and her just-performed live rendition of The Cranberries‘ “Zombie,” released as an instant grat as of Friday (October 23).
The legendary rock and roll photographer Mick Rock, who has shot everyone from David Bowie to Lou Reed to Joan Jett, snapped the entirely fitting album cover. Not only is it a fierce shot, but it’s also an honor, given who’s behind the camera.
In addition to the news, also wrote a note to explain the whole She Is Coming EP-to-now situation.
“If you’re reading this… know that I fucking love and appreciate you on the deepest level. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole fucking life. But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes. Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series I was working on at the time. But it never felt right to release my ‘story’ (each record being a continual autobiography) with a huge chapter missing. If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it ‘The Beginning’ which usually when something is over we call it ‘The End’. But it was far from that. In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020. XXMC.”
Let’s rock, MC.
