my single is dropping

Miley Processes the Breakup With ‘Slide Away’

It’s a stoic Miley Cyrus moment. Her new song, “Slide Away,” is about two people who “aren’t 17” (as Miley was when she met Liam, hint hint) and need to admit that they’ve grown into different people. The new single is a capper to quite the week in the Cyrus-Hemsworth breakup press cycle. Liam made the split Instagram official on the 12th, and Cyrus was seen smooching Brody Jenner’s ex over the weekend. The two big pop singles that dropped tonight are like bookends on a relationship. “Lover” by Taylor Swift is for prom; “Slide Away” is for gazing out at the city laid before the balcony of your divorce condo. Sunrise, sunset.
