Miley Cyrus has announced that her eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, will be released on Friday, 10th March. The album will be preceded by the new single, ‘Flowers’, which will arrive on Friday, 13th January.
Teasers for the new single were broadcast as part of Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party, which saw Cyrus ring in the new year alongside guests Dolly Parton, Sia, Paris Hilton and David Byrne.

Described as a “love letter to L.A”, the record will reportedly see Cyrus continuing her personal journey towards greater emotional strength. News of Cyrus’ eighth album was first teased back in October, with Billboard pointing out that some of the aesthetics used by Cyrus at the time were ostensibly inspired by “the days of 1970s disco and its Studio 54 heyday”.
Cyrus’ last album, Plastic Hearts, was released in November 2020 and featured a notable genre shift, with strong focus on synth-pop and glam-rock. Previously, Cyrus had ventured into country-rock with 2017’s Younger Now.
Cyrus was scheduled to appear in Australia in early 2020 for a one-off charity show in support of the bushfire crisis. Due to the COVID pandemic, her first visit to Australia since 2014 was cancelled, with no plans for a return outlined as yet.
