Miley Cyrus‘ newest track is all about letting go.
Simply days after revealing she and husband Liam Hemsworth have been separating after almost eight months of marriage, the singer launched a brand new track titled “Slide Away.”
Seemingly opening up within the lyrics about her cut up, Cyrus begins her track, “Once upon it was paradise, once upon a time I was paralyzed / I think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights / But it’s time to let it go.”
“Once upon a time it was made for us, woke up one day and it turned to dust,” Cyrus continues. “Baby, we were found, but now we’re lost / So it’s time to let it go.”
Cyrus goes on to make a drug and alcohol reference, singing, “I want my house in the hills / don’t want the whisky and pills / I don’t give up easily but I don’t think I’m down.”
“Move on, we’re not 17 / I’m not who I used to be,” Cyrus provides. “You said that everything changed / You’re right I’m grown now.”
Although images of her kissing longtime good friend Kaitlynn Carter have been launched simply hours after Cyrus, 26, and Hemsworth, 29, launched a joint assertion on Saturday about their separation, a number of sources advised PEOPLE earlier this week the couple aren’t formally their marriage any time quickly.
“They have a long history together, and that’s a huge part of why she has a hard time letting him go,” mentioned a supply near the singer. “At the end of the day, she wants to be happy, and she genuinely wants Liam to be happy too.”
A number of sources agree Cyrus and Hemsworth’s relationship was unhealthy, and the Cyrus supply says their separation “is for the best” proper now.

“They’re having a break right now because they needed it. It was a bad situation with a lot of disagreements,” mentioned one other supply in Cyrus’ circle. “They both agreed it’s better to spend time apart, but this doesn’t mean their relationship is completely over.”
One other insider near the couple — who’ve been on and off for a decade — beforehand mentioned Cyrus “really fought to make” her marriage work. “She wanted to go to therapy,” mentioned the insider. “She just wants to be in a healthy and focused place.”
Cyrus met Hemsworth, 29, in 2009 on the set of The Final Music, and had a rocky, on-again, off-again relationship for years earlier than he proposed in 2012. The 2 ended their engagement and broke up a 12 months later, earlier than reconciling in 2015.
Then in December 2018, they wed throughout an intimate ceremony at their residence in Franklin, Tennessee, following the lack of their Malibu residence within the Woolsey hearth.
“Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers,” Cyrus’ rep mentioned in a press release over the weekend in regards to the estranged couple, who took off their rings earlier this summer time.
