Miley Cyrus unveils new song + self-directed music video, “Midnight Sky”

Today global superstar Miley Cyrus unveiled “Midnight Sky,” which is a new direction for the ever-evolving artist.

The song itself was inspired by the last year of her life and is even accompanied by a music video that Miley shot herself. She relied on a handful of strong female music icons such as Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks, and others in creating the song and music video. To Miley, they have always been generous and some of their greatest allies and inspirations, which makes it natural and appropriate to draw such influence.

The video shows how Miley is her real self, which is non-apologetic, diverse, confident, strong, experimental and whatever else she chooses to be. Throughout her career, she has proven that she is constantly evolving and is never stuck in the same musical position for too long – or longer than she wants to be. The video takes viewers through Miley’s creative vision, showing her complete control over the narrative, which is often told through the mouths of the media.

Miley is at peace with who she is and has nothing to prove. As a musician, she continues to push boundaries and experiment with her sound and look. Miley may have proven to be a lot over the years, but boredom isn’t one of them.

“Midnight Sky” is the next step in her artistic development and you can listen / watch for yourself below.
