On Sept. 29 Miley Cyrus dropped her 6th studio album titled “Younger Now” which includes 11 tracks and one feature from country sensation Dolly Parton (who was good friends with Miley’s country star father Billy Ray Cyrus and became her god mother).
If you are familiar with Miley’s last studio album “Bangerz” you’ll notice a very clear difference.
“Bangerz” was loud, and “Younger Now” is quite the opposite with a much softer feel.
The album itself is essentially a love ballad.
It is very intriguing to see how her music has developed in the last few years.
It’s very nice to see Miley getting in touch with her country roots in this album, you hear a lot more of that country sound in this album compared to her last.
The country and pop elements in “Younger Now” go well together, and if you were a fan of Miley back in the Hannah Montana days, you’ll feel very nostalgic.
The sound is very much like what you’d expect from a grown-up Hannah Montana, and it is very refreshing that Miley is embracing her past instead of pretending it didn’t happen.
Every track title is interesting.
“Week Without You”, “Miss You so Much”, and “I Would Die for You” are all beautiful examples of her love for her on and off partner Liam Hemsworth.
Miley really expresses herself in a new light that’s refreshing since most people associate her with is her 2013 VMA’s performance with Robin Thick.
She has toned it down a lot, while remaining true to herself.
I give the album a solid 4/5 stars.
If you listen in the order of the track list from start to end, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
