Miley Cyrus shares stylish video for “nasty” new single ‘River’

The song appears on the star's eighth album 'Endless Summer Vacation'

Miley Cyrus has shared the official music video for her latest single, ‘River’ – you can watch it below.

The track appears on the pop star’s eighth studio album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’, which came out today (March 10).

Cyrus sings over pulsating synths: “Heart beats so loud that it’s drowning me out/ Living in an April shower/ You’re pouring down, baby, drowning me out/ You’re just like a river/ You go on forever/ You’re just like a river.”


In the stylish black-and-white visuals, the singer dances under a spotlight on a raised, lit-up platform before she’s joined by a group of topless men. Later, water begins to rain on the performers as ‘River’ intensifies towards the end.

Prior to dropping ‘River’, Cyrus described the tune as a “dancefloor banger” with a “nasty” sound. “It was a time in my life where I was going through just a lot emotionally and personally,” she recalled of how the single came about.

Cyrus explained in a video on social media this week that ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ was split into two parts, ‘AM’ and ‘PM’.

“The ‘AM’ to me is representing the morning time, where there’s a buzz and an energy and there’s a potential of new possibilities. It’s a new day,” she said.


As for the ‘PM’ part, the star added: “At nighttime, it feels like there’s a slinky, seediness and kind of a grime but a glamour at the same time. In the evening, it’s a great time for rest, it’s a time to recover. Or it’s a time to go out and experience the wild side.

“In LA, there’s a certain energy to the night and you can feel trouble boil up to the surface and it’s very inspiring to me.”

Per a press release, the album was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Kid Harpoon, Greg Kurstin, Mike WiLL Made-It and Tyler Johnson. Cyrus previously described the LP as a “love letter to LA”.

Miley Cyrus recently achieved the longest-running UK Number One single for a female artist since Adele‘s ‘Easy On Me’ with ‘Flowers’. The song has so far held the top spot for seven weeks, per the Official Charts Company.
