Miley Cyrus has been all over social media recently for her rock covers, like "Heart of Glass", as well as her single "Midnight Sky" that dropped preceding her new album. Well, that long-anticipated album is here!
Plastic Hearts, the singer’s seventh studio album, is introducing us to a new era of Miley. She shows off her edgy pop style while showcasing the incredible dynamics of her voice. A fan couldn’t ask for anything more from the ever-changing artist. She truly has shown us her range since her Hannah Montana days.
Her talent shows through, especially in "High", "Never Be Me", and "Angels Like You", some slower, more intimate additions to the otherwise upbeat album.
Who doesn’t love the addition of some other powerful voices alongside Miley’s own pipes? Dua Lipa, Billy Idol, and Joan Jett & The Black Hearts make memorable appearances in three songs, complimenting Cyrus’s unique vocals. There is also an appearance by the legendary Stevie Nicks in a remix of the stand-out single, "Midnight Sky", mashed up with "Edge of Seventeen", Nicks’ 1981 hit. The mashup is inspired, revealing Miley’s appreciation for those who came before her in the music industry.
There is something for everyone on this album. She speaks to a wide audience with the messages in her songs. Some are more playful, like "Bad Karma" or "Gimme What I Want", while others speak to very serious things in the singer’s life, like "Angels Like You" and "Never Be Me." I think it is safe to say that this is a wonderful addition to Miley’s repertoire.
Personally, I love hearing Miley Cyrus cover 70s rock songs. Seeing her draw from that era in order to put together this album definitely made this one of my favorites. With every song she sings, she keeps us on her toes, switching between genres and decades like a musical chameleon. I am excited to see what she does next!
