Miley Cyrus Reveals New Album Title and Release Date -- See the Snazzy Announcement
By Jackie Willis
Miley Cyrus will be kicking off the fall season with some new tunes.
On Tuesday, the 24-year-old singer announced that her new album, Younger Now, will drop on Sept. 29. Cyrus shared the big news on social media with a video of a studded leather jacket with "Younger Now" appearing in rope, and tagged her designer friend, Jeremy Scott, in the post. Coincidentally, Scott's runway show at New York Fashion Week will take place on Sept. 8, just a few weeks prior to Cyrus' album release.
In an exclusive interview with ET in May, Cyrus' father, Billy Ray Cyrus, spilled details about his daughter's new music. "Miley really leaned into her roots with this new album, 'Malibu' in particular," the 55-year-old country crooner said, noting that he hears a lot of influences from The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Dolly Parton on the tracks. "I mean, the sounds that were roaring out of our house and the people that were coming through our house as great songwriters -- Carl Perkins and Waylon, Hank Cochran, some of the greatest songwriters in the world. Ed King, who wrote 'Sweet Home Alabama,' was frequently at the house…"
"I think Miley absorbed a lot of those sounds and a lot of that conversation," he continued. "Especially hearing Waylon say to me at the kitchen table, 'Son, what's the definition of an outlaw? One who has been outlawed, welcome to the club.' Oh, thank you, Waylon. Miley heard that and then as she pursued it, she comes down with her guitar and he shows her [how to play] 'Good Hearted Woman.' On a guitar, you absorb that stuff. It becomes part of who you are."
