Miley Cyrus has released a new version of her recent single “Midnight Sky” that features none other than Fleetwood Mac icon Stevie Nicks.
A mix of disco sparkle and rock grit, the new track is an excellent mash-up of “Midnight Sky” with Nicks’ own classic solo track “Edge of Seventeen”—hence the title “Midnight Sky (Edge of Midnight).”
In a tweet, Cyrus gushed, “Stevie Nicks has always been my idol and an inspiration. It’s an honor to now call her my friend and collaborator.” Nicks returned the love in a post of her own: “Magical! Loved singing with her!”
This new version of “Midnight Sky” comes after Cyrus confirmed details of her upcoming seventh studio album Plastic Hearts, which will be released November 27.
In a social media post, the pop star revealed that she had been working on the record for two years, but nearly had to start from scratch after losing her home in the 2018 Woolsey Fire that ravaged California and prompted thousands to evacuate.
“Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series I was working on at the time,” she explained. “But it never felt right to release my ‘story’ (each record being a continual autobiography) with a huge chapter missing.”
Last month, Nicks also marked a return to music with the solo track “Show Them the Way,” which featured Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on drums.

If you’re reading this… know that I fucking love and appreciate you on the deepest level. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole fucking life. No one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished… it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes. Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series I was working on at the time. But it never felt right to release my “story” (each record being a continual autobiography) with a huge chapter missing. If it were a chapter in my book I guess I would call it “The Beginning” which usually when something is over we call it “The End”. But it was far from that. In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020. XXMC Pre Order in Bio. Photograph by: @therealmickrock
