2023 started in style for the former Disney star, who hosted Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party show on NBC with a host of guests including co-host Dolly Parton, as well as Sia, Latto, Rae Sremmurd, David Byrne, Liily and Fletcher as well as Paris Hilton, SNL’s Chloe Fineman, Sarah Sherman and comedy trio Please Don’t Destroy.

She would go on to announce her first single of the album during the New Year’s Eve programme.

Endless Summer Vacation will mark the eighth studio album of her career, and her first album in almost three years, following her most recent offering Plastic Hearts in 2020, which saw the star explore seventies glam rock.

Miley Cyrus has described her upcoming album as “a love letter to LA”, adding that it will explore her journey towards building both physical and emotional strength.

Her new album will see her work with long-term collaborator and friend Mike Will Made-It, who aided her in her career transformation as executive producer on her Bangerz album, which saw her breakaway from her largely soft pop image.

Bangerz , which was released in 2013, produced some of the biggest hits of Cyrus’ career, including worldwide chart toppers We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball, as well as allowing Cyrus to explore her hip hop influences.

Other collaborators on her new album include English songwriter and producer Kid Harpoon, Grammy award-winning Greg Kurstin and American record producer Tyler Johnson.

Excitement for the new project has already hit fever pitch online and fans will be eagerly awaiting Cyrus’ new single to get a taste of what the album may offer.

Miley Cyrus’ new single Flowers will be released January 13, with her album release to follow on March 10.
