A nod to her former self.
Miley Cyrus’ new LP is a nod to her former self… now.
The “Inspired” singer has revealed the title of her forthcoming record is Younger Now and confirms it debuts on September 29.
The pop star subtly made the announcement on her website in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
She explained the title to Billboard. “I just think for girls to celebrate being young right now would be a great thing,” she said, adding that the particular phrase was inspired by something her mother had recently said to her. “She was like, ‘I swear to God, you are younger now at 24 than you were at 4!’ And so it just hit me, like I am f–king younger now, and I am proud of that.”
She clarified that her feeling younger feels liberating and “not afraid of who I used to be… It’s like saying, ‘I don’t give a f–k that I was Hannah Montana. I don’t give a f–k that I was the Bangerz girl.'”

Not much is known about the record, but it’ll incorporate a pop/folk feel versus the hip-hop lean of Bangerz or the trancy indie vibe she explored with Dead Petz. “I’m giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good — I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back,” Cyrus told Billboard earlier thus year of the project.
There’s more to come – Miley was just announced as one of the performers at the upcoming VMAs.
