Miley Cyrus has revealed this Friday that next November 27 his long-awaited new album will be released, which will be titled ‘Plastic Hearts’, announcement that has coincided with the launch of a duet with one of his idols, Stevie Nicks.
The song, titled ‘Edge of Midnight’, is actually a remix of the hit song ‘Midnight Sky’ which he released last August and which was not only the first single from his new album, but also his return to the market after a difficult year in which he had to postpone all recording due to an operation on the vocal cords.
In an interview for Variety magazine published in June, the artist revealed that she had been “sober” for the past six months as a result of that surgery, necessary because of the wear and tear caused by excessive use of her throat when speaking and singing.
On the basis of ‘Midnight Sky’, which was produced by Andrew Watt and Louis Bell, Cyrus explained that he had wanted to pay tribute to the attitude of those who had been his female icons of music, like Joan Jett or Stevie Nicks herself.

In 2010, after concluding her contract, the album ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ showed an artist wishing to undertake a less childish direction, something that was confirmed with the controversial “Bangerz” (2013), her greatest commercial success to date. date, in which he was extremely procacious and irreverent with international hits such as ‘Wrecking Ball’ and ‘We Can’t Stop’.
