Miley Cyrus' New Album Is Here

Cyrus writes her love letter to L.A. in Endless Summer Vacation.


While the weather might not show it, summer is finally here, thanks to Miley Cyrus’ new album. Endless Summer Vacation is a breezy, effortlessly-cool eighth album from the genre-shifting singer. Cyrus shared the second single from the album “River,” a disco-infused, dance-pop track chronicling a rollercoaster relationship. 

“This song evolved from a trouble where it felt like it never stopped raining, to then raining down love,” shared Cyrus on Spotify. 

The singer released a sleek, stylish video for the club-inspired banger. The 1990s-inspired black-and-white video saw rain pouring down on the star and her shirtless backup dancers.  

We see a new Cyrus emerge from her Plastic Hearts punk-rocker-era this time around.  Ditching her silver-studded chains and Blondie-esque aesthetic, Cyrus takes a confident dip in the palm-tree-shaded pool. The album feels like a slick transition from a sunny day out on a shopping street to a wild, a cocktail-sipping night on the town. 

“In LA, there’s a certain energy to the night, and you can feel trouble boil up to the surface, and it’s very inspiring to me,” said the 30-year-old singer about her dueling A.M/P.M album concept.

Cyrus also announced Endless Summer Vacation (Backyard Sessions), an exclusive Disney+  performance of the new album, in celebration of the release. She will also perform her hit "The Climb," a full circle moment for the Hannah Montana star.

Endless Summer Vacation features collaborations from Brandi Carlile and Sia on the 13-track album. “Thousand Miles' takes Cyrus back to her country star days, her signature husky voice pairing well with Carlile’s crystal clear vocals, backed by a harmonica melody. 

Miley Cyrus once again proves herself as a versatile talent, pulling off house dance-pop as well as soulful ballads. Endless Summer Vacation is the perfect escape for anyone wishing to travel to warmer days.
