While talking about her upcoming new album and single “Malibu” — which is about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth — Billboard asked if her new album is “pretty singer-songwriter-y, no?”
Cyrus replied: “Yeah. But not granola. I don’t listen to Ed Sheeran and John Mayer and stuff.”
Granola aside, “Malibu” will be a departure from her twerking phase, US Weekly said.
“I never would’ve believed you if three years ago you told me I’d be here writing this song,” the “Wrecking Ball” singer, 24, told the magazine of the upcoming ballad.
“They’re going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam,” she explained of her decision to pen the personal jam. “So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel’?”
The couple, who called off their engagement three years ago, rekindled their romance last year and currently live in Malibu together, hence the title.
“I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard,” she said of their relationship. “Suddenly you’re like, ‘I don’t recognize you anymore.’ We had to refall for each other.”
