Miley Cyrus is BACK and she’s better than ever before with her powerful new single ‘Midnight Sky’.
Sampling Stevie Nicks’ ‘Edge of Seventeen’, ‘Midnight Sky’ is an unapologetic anthem of independence which sees Miley reflect on past relationships. Despite the media’s constant interest in her love life, the track highlights that Miley a free spirit who is happy by herself. Laced with an irresistible grungy disco-pop vibe and Miley’s raspy rock vocals, ‘Midnight Sky’ is a true evolution of the singer-songwriter’s sound and we are 100% here for it.
I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (By you)
Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you
‘Midnight Sky’ comes with a self-directed visual which sees Miley take full creative control. Sporting a number of eye-catching looks, she performs the track in a number of unique rooms include a hall of mirrors, a ball pit style room, and a glittery discotheque with colourful animal statues.

As an artist who has continually reinvented herself over the years, ‘Midnight Sky’ marks another exciting chapter in the world of Miley Cyrus. From this song alone, there is no doubt that her new era is going to be well worth the wait and looks set to be her strongest body of work to date. Welcome back, Miley!
