Mickey Mouse remains a cherished part of Miley Cyrus’ sentiments.
The 30-year-old pop icon unveiled a fresh single on Friday, titled “Once Youthful,” a poignant ballad that delves into her days with Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana,” her experiences as a young star, and also pays homage to her evolving journey.
In a message shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, Cyrus explained, “This song encapsulates the essence of embracing our past, cherishing our present selves, and exulting in the individuals we aspire to be. As I reflect on my history, I stand with pride, and as I envision the times ahead, I am filled with delight.” She additionally dedicated the song to her devoted fans, acknowledging their consistent support that transforms her dreams into reality. “Your unwavering dedication is a cornerstone for which I am genuinely appreciative,” she expressed.
The artist’s major breakthrough emerged from her role as the lead in the teenage sitcom “Hannah Montana” (2006-2011), where she portrayed a young woman leading a dual life as a renowned pop luminary.
In an Instagram post, Cyrus disclosed that she penned the lyrics for “Once Youthful” two years ago during a period when she felt misunderstood. Over the past year and a half, she meticulously composed a sonic tapestry of her perspective, culminating in this release. She acknowledged that while her work on the song has concluded, its ongoing narrative continues to evolve daily. Cyrus viewed this unfinished state as an intrinsic facet of its allure, mirroring her current phase of life – incomplete, yet whole.
Sharing a snippet from her “Endless Summer Vacations Continued (Backyard Sessions)” on social media, Cyrus elaborated on her latest creation, describing it as “a blend of optimism and wistfulness. It captures the coexistence of sorrow and elation, a truth we frequently encounter. Above all, the song epitomizes the act of gazing ahead, towards the path I am forging.”
