Miley Cyrus discusses upcoming new album: “It will be reflective of who I am”

Cyrus says the new record will bring together "all different pieces of inspiration and influence"

Miley Cyrus has discussed the inspirations for her upcoming new album, promising that the record “will be reflective of who I am.”

The singer recently made her return with new single ‘Midnight Sky’, which she has now confirmed is the first single from an upcoming full-length album.

Speaking in a new interview with French radio station NRJ. Cyrus spoke of ‘Midnight Sky’, saying that “the first single [of an album] comes with a lot of pressure because it does kind of show everyone where you’re going.”


Adding information on potential inspiration for the album, she said: “In my [live] sets, I cover Britney Spears to Metallica, so my record will be reflective of who I am, which is just kind of all different pieces of inspiration and influence.”

Meanwhile, Cyrus recently accused MTV of sexism following a behind-the-scenes encounter while filming for this year’s VMA award ceremony.

The singer performed ‘Midnight Sky’ at last month’s ceremony, and, while speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, she spoke of how she asked for no “beauty light” on her during the performance, something she says is only used on women.

“The beauty light is always used on women and I said turn the fucking lights off,” Cyrus told Rogan. “You would never tell Travis Scott or Adam Levine that he couldn’t turn the beauty light off.”


Cyrus also recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, sharing a cover of the Hall & Oates classic ‘Maneater’ as well as another performance of ‘Midnight Sky’.
