In November 2018, Miley Cyrus’ Malibu home was destroyed in a wildfire. That fire, she says, was a beginning. And, from the ashes, she is releasing her new rock album, Plastic Hearts.
Miley Cryus released a hand-written statement on Twitter that reads:
“I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record- its songs/ sounds but my whole f***ing life. NO ONE checks and ego like life itself.
Just when I thought the body of work was finished it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed.
Nature did what I now see as a favor + destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”
She goes on to say that her collaborators had most of the music that burned at her place and she had been planning a EP series.
“But it never felt right to release ‘my story’ (each record being a continual autobiography) with a HUGE chapter missing. If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it – ‘The Beginning’ which usually when something is over we call it ‘The End’. But it was far from that.
In Triumph + gratitude, I present to you my 7th Studio record, Plastic Hearts.”
