Miley Cyrus has a new album in the works called Younger Now. The album’s track list will contain 11 songs (viewable from Apple Music), 4 of which can already be listened to. These four songs include the self titled “Younger Now”, “Malibu”, “Week Without You”, and “Inspired”. “Malibu” and “Inspired” have already come out as singles, with “Malibu” already having six remixes and the original single.
Younger Now already shows stark contrasts to Cyrus’s last major album, which was 2013’s Bangerz. While still a predominantly pop driven album, Younger Now is incorporating other musical elements, most notably country. There is even a song listed on the pre-release that features country icon Dolly Parton, though it has yet to be released. Younger Now also takes a more subtle and mature approach than Bangerz, which featured songs like “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop”.
According to People.com, Miley’s new album is a “modern country record”, and that her focus is already on whats next. Cyrus wrote the first song “Malibu” over a year ago, as well as some other songs in the album. Miley Cyrus describes Younger Now as an evolution of her music. “…teaching my fans about responsibility is my no.1 responsibility now,” Cyrus told People.com, and then went on to describe the message of Bangerz to be about freedom. With the shift in the message of her music, it is clear that Younger Now will likely be a more mature album in terms of meanings of the lyrics and the music itself.
With the first four tracks already out, the album will officially be released September 29th, 2017. (From ConsequenceOfSound.com)
