Miley Cyrus' new music is coming—"#ButForRealThisTime."
More than a year since she released the EP, She Is Coming, and nearly 12 months after dropping "Slide Away," the songstress is back to teasing fans with a new track. On Wednesday, Aug. 5, the performer released a preview of "Midnight Sky" via Instagram's latest format, Instagram Reels. The star shared the slightest bit more of the song in a clip posted to her Instagram Story.
While the previews still left much of the song a mystery, it did give listeners a hint at what's to come musically for the singer. The Instagram Reels clip also featured disco ball graphics, giving off a glam '70s party vibe that will have fans busting a move past midnight.
A day earlier, she posted a throwback video of herself performing with the caption, "Meet Miley Cyrus..... again. #SheIsComing #ButForRealThisTime"—seemingly a reference to her delayed seventh studio album, She Is Miley Cyrus. The star dropped She Is Coming, the first of three EPs originally meant to make up the album, in May 2019. The two others—She Is Here and She Is Everything—have yet to come out.
In November, Cyrus underwent vocal cord surgery after being treated for tonsillitis.
This past May, she told WSJ. Magazine (via People) that she had finished her upcoming record, but that given the coronavirus pandemic, she found it hard to "feel appropriate releasing music at this time."
"I made a record that's kind of rock-influenced, hence my mullet. This was not just a random Wednesday Tiger King haircut," she told the magazine. "This was to go with the new music, but now I'm rolling through Calabasas with a Joe Exotic mullet."
Now, it seems like the star is ready to roll out what she's been working on—after giving fellow pop star Dua Lipa a listen first.
As she captioned a photo of herself with Lipa on Instagram Wednesday, "Dua has heard what you haven't..."
And it sounds like Lipa approves. The star commented back, "They are innnnn for a TREAT!!!!"
