It appears Cody Simpson has discovered his new muse. After placing up a romance with Miley Cyrus, Cody launched “Golden Thing,” a candy music all about his new girlfriend!
Eric Clapton wrote “Layla” about George Harrison’s spouse, Pattie Boyd. Billie Joel’s love for Christie Brinkley introduced the world “Uptown Girl.” Andre 3000’s love for Erykah Badu was behind the enduring “Ms. Jackson.” Now, Cody Simpson, 22, joins them and the legion of others who’ve immortalized their loves in music. The “Pretty Brown Eyes” singer launched “Golden Thing” on October 18, and it’s all about his new girlfriend, Miley Cyrus, 26. It’s an acoustic dream that seize’s the Aussie signer’s awe for Miley, a longtime friend-turned-lover.
“Diamond throne / All on her own / Coffee skin / She let me in,” Cody sings in a single verse, seemingly referring to the transition of their relationship from platonic to romantic. Leading into the refrain, he croons, “I’m shocked / It’s the golden thing she’s got / It’s a golden thing and I.”
While the manufacturing of the music boils down to only Cody and his guitar, generally, preserving it easy works. Clearly, Cody and his guitar are sufficient to make Miley swoon. “I sing softly to her / in the last daylight / and the chorus birds / in the heights of night / and if we could be heard / for whatever it’s worth / the rules in the sky / they’d cry,” sings Cody in yet one more verse, in accordance with Genius.
Cody let the cat out of the bag early, telling HollywoodLife that he was going to launch this music – or, that his girlfriend was making him do it. “I wrote her a song this week that she’s pretty much forcing me to put out,” he instructed HollywoodLife. “She was like, ‘If you don’t put this sh– out, I’m putting it out on your behalf for you. I’m getting your Spotify login and doing this sh– myself.’” When requested concerning the music, Cody mentioned that it was “something I wrote for her while she was sick this week.”
Miley was hospitalized for tonsillitis and had them eliminated. As she recovered, Cody cheered her up with flowers and by serenading her with an early model of this music. “Suddenly I am feeling much better,” Miley revealed to her Instagram Stories, sharing a black and white video of Cody singing to her. “This sweeeeeet guy came to visit and the hospital and sang the sweeeeeetest song he wrote just for me.”
In the quick preview, followers acquired a style of Cody’s romantic lyrics. “Deep blue jeans, movie screens, it’s a golden thing she’s got…I shouted the words in the first daylight and a chorus of words burst into sight,” he sang within the video. “Now I know that I’m hers, for whatever it’s worth, by the rule that’s in the sky.”
Cody and Miley had been noticed making out on Oct. 3, about two weeks after she and Kaitlynn Carter ended their 6-week, whirlwind romance (and about two months after Miley and her husband, Liam Hemsworth, introduced that they had been calling it quits.) Cody confirmed that he and Miley had been collectively on Oct. 11. “I am not single, I am not single,” he instructed InternetEXCLUSIVELY. “[Miley’s] creative, she’s very passionate about what she does. I’m very similar in that sense, so I think that’s why we get along so well.”
