Miley Cyrus Set To Return In Just Six Days
"This is Miley leaning into her roots more than I've ever heard," dad Billy Ray Cyrus shared with Billboard. "For her, this is honest."
Miley Cyrus is set to return with a brand new single, ‘Malibu’, on May 11 as she builds towards the release of a new record.
John Norris, the Billboard writer who heard the new album, said: “One song was written for Hillary Clinton and another for women in the workplace, but, overall, the album’s less explicitly political than it is personal.”
Apparently, ‘Malibu’ is a “breezy love song […] with sounds you’ve never heard from Miley before.”
An album title and release date still evades us, but don’t fret: we’ll know very soon.
Taylor Swift Is Recording Her New Album Right Now
Until this week, both Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift had been laying low, enjoying the quiet life. A self-imposed media blackout for the pair of them? Yes, in a way.
But that’s changing. Cyrus is making a full return to the spotlight next week, and Swift might be following suit not long after, according to E!.
An unnamed source told E! that Swift has been "writing and recording her new album in Nashville for the last several months.
"She has been working on it around the clock and will be making an announcement soon. She is really excited about her new music and can't wait to share it with her fans."
Ed Sheeran Joins Stormzy Onstage At Brixton Gig
Last night, Stormzy brought his three-night stay at London’s legendary Brixton Academy to a close (read our review of the second night) and brought a very special guest (it was Ed Sheeran, we know you read the headline) out for some fun.
Just like at the BRITs – but this time Ed being the surprise, ofc – the pair performed ‘Shape Of You’. Watch everyone losing it when Ed comes onstage below.
