Miley Cyrus Shares Video for New Single "Malibu"

Miley Cyrus Shares Video for New Single

"If Miley was getting married, it would not be in that dress!"

The woman who gave us the twerk-heard-'round-the-world has changed her sound and her image with "Malibu", her brand-new single and video. "I'd be here writing this song/ But here I am, next to you/ The sky's more blue in Malibu", she continues.

The song is off her forthcoming untitled album, which will be released later this year.

As much as it seems like a deliberate swing of the "Wrecking Ball" pendulum, it's clearly not just a marketing move but an earnest public mash note to on-again fiancé Liam Hemsworth, whose Malibu compound she recently announced she's moved into.

"I never came to the beach or stood by the ocean/I never sat by the shore under the sun with my feet in the sand but you brought me here", she sings.

Cyrus wrote the single while in transit on the way to her coaching gig on "The Voice" and had to stop herself from singing out loud.

Her upcoming new album will feature more acoustic songs and melodies written by Cyrus, and will include a song for Hillary Clinton, whom she supported in last year's US presidential election, and another anthem dedicated to women in the workplace, Billboard said.

She grabbed headlines when she dressed in latex lingerie and twerked on stage with R&B singer Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, in a performance that landed her the title of pop music's bad girl.

"I like talking to people that don't agree with me, but I don't think I can do that in an aggressive way", she says.
