Miley Cyrus has shared her latest single, and the first new music since her album, Endless Summer Vacation was released. Cyrus had teased the track a week ago with a 30-second trailer, which ended with a brief behind-the-scenes look at the shoot for its accompanying music video.
Cyrus shared that she wrote “Used to Be Young” towards the beginning of making the Endless Summer Vacation album. Said Cyrus: “These lyrics were written almost 2 years ago at the beginning of my ESV. It was at a time I felt misunderstood. I have spent the last 18 months painting a sonic picture of my perspective to share with you. The time has arrived to release a song that I could perfect forever. Although my work is done, this song will continue to write itself every day. The fact it remains unfinished is a part of its beauty. That is my life at this moment ….. unfinished yet complete. Sincerely, Miley”
Upon the song’s release, Cyrus shared on Instagram: “This song is about honoring who we’ve been, loving who we are & celebrating who we will become. I feel proud when reflecting on my past and joyful when thinking about the future. I am grateful to my loyal fans who make my dreams a reality daily. I am sincerely thankful for the stability of your steadfast support. This song is for you. Truly, Miley”
The official visual for the song, directed by Jacob Bixenman and Brendan Walter, shows a teary-eyed Cyrus facing the camera directly while singing the emotional song. Take a look at the video for ‘Used To Be Young’ – here.
