Miley Cyrus Announces New Single ‘Used To Be Young’

In June, the singer told British Vogue she hoped to release a new song 'soon.'

“This song is dedicated to my loyal fans,” Miley Cyrus posted to Instagram about her new single “Used To Be Young.” The single coincides with the 30-year-old’s Backyard Sessions special with ABC on August 24 at 10pm EDT. The single is out on August 25.

To celebrate the new single, the Endless Summer Vacation: Continued (Backyard Sessions) special is a “retrospective interview sharing stories about the first 30 years of my life,” according to Cyrus. In the teaser clip, she catwalks Micky and Minnie Mouse regalia–honoring her Disney days– before announcing, “I have nowhere to be, b*tch.”

Cyrus hinted at a potential new single during her June cover story for British Vogue. After explaining how ‘being real’ is the best medicine for her sobriety, it inspired her to write “Used To Be Young.”

She closed the interview with song lyrics she ‘hoped to release soon’: “I know I used to be crazy. I know I used to be fun. You say I used to be wild. I say I used to be young.”

Fans noticed the single releases on Billy Ray Cyrus’ birthday. Fans speculate “Used To Be Young” is a thank-you to her father, who brought her into showbiz and helped her part ways with partying.

But Cyrus’ intentions are not always pure, especially when “Flowers” exists. The athematic Liam-Hemsworth diss track released on her ex-husband’s birthday and became the fastest song to reach one billion streams. The January release from Cyrus’ eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, went eight non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Miley Cyrus’ new single, “Used To Be Young,” is out on August 25. Check out more Music News on Music Daily!
