Miley Cyrus has released Endless Summer Vacation, her eighth studio album, as well as a special edition of Backyard Sessions on Disney+. The concert documentary features Cyrus playing her new songs and discussing the motivation behind them.
Cyrus portrays her current album as a discussion with her audience, with shades of honesty, truth, wisdom, comedy, and depth, in the 42-minute documentary. She feels that the best songs engage the listener on a human level, resulting in an intimate and honest interaction.
“Thousand Miles,” one of the album’s tracks, includes Brandi Carlile and pays tribute to Cyrus’ younger sister, Noah Cyrus. At an emotional moment, Cyrus admits that the song’s lyrics were inspired by the suicide of a friend’s sister. She couldn’t picture her life without her sister, so she penned the song to spread hope and happiness.
The song’s lyrics, originally named “Happy Girl,” were about sisterhood and her yearning for her sister’s happiness. Cyrus sings the original lyrics in the documentary, which describe the anguish and grief of losing a loved one. The song, however, has transformed into a joyous celebration of love and joy, representing the healing process and the power of music to convert melancholy into pleasure.
Cyrus’ latest album demonstrates her artistic development and ability to connect with her fans on a human level. The songs are a blend of pop, rock, and country, with heartfelt lyrics. “Thousand Miles” is a heartfelt ode to sisters and the value of family in our lives.
Endless Summer Vacation demonstrates Cyrus’ talent and commitment to making music that speaks to the soul. The Backyard Sessions on Disney+ is a must-see for Miley Cyrus fans and everyone who enjoys amazing music.
