Miley Cyrus to ‘Start All Over,’ Teases Her Return Is ‘For Real This Time’

When it comes to surprise music announcements, artist Miley Cyrus has joined in on the recent trend. A social media post shared on August 4, 2020, has her fandom talking about Cyrus’ new music once again, following a virtual, fan-made concert that had her trending days earlier. Here’s what she wrote.

Miley Cyrus has released six albums

Cyrus began her career on the Disney Channel, starring in Hannah Montana. While working on the series, she dropped a double album: the second Hannah Montana soundtrack, and her first album as herself, Meet Miley Cyrus. The artist subsequently released two more studio albums with Disney’s Hollywood Records: Breakout and Can’t Be Tamed.

The latter marked the beginning of a turn for Cyrus. She left Disney and Hollywood Records to kick off her movie career, later switching gears and signing with RCA Records. Through the label, she released BangerzMiley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, and Younger Now 

Her seventh, ‘She Is Miley Cyrus,’ was due out in 2020

In 2019, Cyrus dropped the first of three planned EPs, making up one full LP, She Is Miley CyrusShe Is Coming was released in May 2019, featuring the single “Mother’s Daughter.” But then life had other plans. Cyrus’ separation (and eventual divorce) from Liam Hemsworth brought about her non-album single “Slide Away.”

After that, Cyrus entered into a new relationship with singer Cody Simpson, possibly changing the direction of her music even more. She also underwent surgery on her vocal cords, putting her on vocal rest for the remainder of 2019. This delayed the previously teased EPs She Is Here and She Is Everything.

At the start of the new year, Cyrus assured her fans she was ready to get back to making music. She also announced multiple festival gigs in the coming months. However, the latter didn’t happen due to the onset of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. So Cyrus made other plans.

She began hosting an Instagram Live show, Bright Minded: Live With Miley, which led to reunions with fellow former Disney Channel stars Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. Cyrus also did a few virtual performances and championed causes such as Black Lives Matter. But while this was all great, fans still wanted new music.

The new era is finally here

Now, in August 2020, it looks like they won’t have to wait much longer. On August 4, Cyrus posted a tease on her social media accounts (even pinning it on Twitter). She threw it all the way back to her first album, sharing a clip from her second single, “Start All Over.”

It sounds like that’s exactly what she plans to do. Cyrus wrote, “Meet Miley Cyrus….. again,” playing off the album title. She also added the hashtags #SheIsComing (the first EP) and #ButForRealThisTime, poking fun at how many times she’s announced something new was on its way.
