Noah Cyrus Releases Debut Album ‘The Hardest Part’

Noah Cyrus has followed in the steps of her famous family, officially releasing her debut album, The Hardest Part, today. The record comes 12 years after Cyrus released her first single, at the age of ten, having been in the entertainment industry since age three.

The youngest child of country musician Billy Ray Cyrus and the youngest sister of pop star Miley Cyrus, Noah’s first release was 2010’s ‘Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea’. Six years later, Cyrus formally launched her musical career, working with the likes of Labrinth, XXXTentacion, MØ, and Lil Xan to release a number of singles in the following years.

After a handful of EPs released over the last few years, Cyrus has now shared her debut album. The Hardest Part features previously-released singles ‘I Burned LA Down’ and ‘Every Beginning Ends’ featuring Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard. The record is designed to shine a light on Cyrus’ versatility as a musician, moving away from the pop-influenced sounds of her early work and towards genres such as indie-folk and country.

“Creating the arrangements was the most fulfilling part of this record,” Cyrus said of the album’s production. “Mike [Crossey, producer] and I were so driven and fully engulfed in the music. It was seamless—our brains connected into one.

“I found a safe place to make music with people I love and trust. The process was really healing for me. For the first time, I’m revealing my complete and honest truth.”
