After changing all his profile pictures to ’10 days’ we knew there had to be something exciting following and it’s about time, too! During a Facebook Live video, Chris Young announced that in 10 days, on May 12th, he will release a new single. He then posted on Twitter & Instagram so that no one missed the news.
Young’s last album – not counting his Christmas album – I’m Coming Over was released in 2015, so it was only a matter of time before we got some new music. Young gave a glimpse on his Instagram page of the single, titled ‘Losing Sleep’. Check it out:
I can’t help but feel that the snippet is reminiscent of Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’, which is in no way a bad thing. Hopefully, following the new single will be an album announcement.
‘Losing Sleep’ will be available on May 12th.
In her feature in the next issue of Billboard Magazine, Miley Cyrus has announced that she will be releasing new music next week, May 11th. This is the perfect time for Miley to make her mark in country as the genre needs more honest female perspectives.
Cyrus is pictured on the cover of the magazine, looking a far cry from her previous endeavours, but beautiful as ever, along with a caption describing her new venture as becoming a, “countrified singer-songwriter”. Her new single, titled ‘Malibu’ has been described as a, “gimmick-free…breezy love song”.
I was really excited to read that Miley is going down a more country route, her distinctive voice is perfect for it – if having Dolly Parton as a godmother isn’t excuse enough. Despite this, Cyrus expressed her concern that country fans, “don’t really take me seriously as a country artist“. I would contest this from my own personal opinion, but I also have high hopes that her new music, which Billy Ray Cyrus describes as, “Miley leaning into her roots more than I’ve ever heard”, will prove to country fans that she is more than deserving of our praise.
‘Malibu’ is out May 11th. Read the full interview with Billboard in the article below.
