Miley Cyrus has released her eighth studio album Endless Summer Vacation. The album, available globally, can be streamed here. Alongside the album’s release, Miley launched the official video for new track “River.” Watch the Jacob Bixenman directed visual here.
Endless Summer Vacation features Miley’s hit single “Flowers” plus twelve additional tracks. A true worldwide smash, “Flowers” spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 – a personal best for Miley. “Flowers” is #1 on US Pop Radio and is the fastest running song in nearly a decade to achieve that position. Additionally, it is the fastest song in history to hit 500million streams on Spotify. “Flowers” is officially the longest running UK #1 single by a female solo artist.
In a recently shared clip, Miley gave insight into Endless Summer Vacation; watch here. She notes, “When it comes to the sequencing of Endless Summer Vacation, I divided it by two parts: AM and PM – to kind of represent almost like an act. The AM to me is representing the morning time, where there is a buzz and an energy and a there’s potential of new possibilities. It’s a new day. And in the nighttime, it feels like there is a slinky, seediness and kind of a grime, but a glamour at the same time. In the evening, it’s a great time for rest, a time to recover – or it’s a time to go out and experience the wild side. Los Angeles, there is a certain energy to the night that you can kind of feel trouble boil up to the surface, and it is very inspiring to me.”
