Miley Cyrus releases music video for new song 'Malibu'

Catch Miley Cyrus performing "Malibu" for the first time at KIIS FM's Wango Tango on Saturday, May 13th at StubHub Center in Carson.

The woman who gave us the twerk-heard-'round-the-world has changed her sound and her image with "Malibu", her brand-new single and video. It's an ode to love and something Cyrus herself has confirmed was written as a love poem for Liam Hemsworth, but it's just as much an emotional experience for Miley's fans. "So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, 'This is how I feel?'"

And the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer, 55, has also said he is pleased to see how "happy" Miley looks these days, as the happiness of his daughter "means more" than anything. The video is directed by Miley Cyrus and Diane Martel.

Miley Cyrus has been having something of a personality crisis through her music. He said: "As a dad, I see Miley really just functioning on, like, a figure and a joy for life".

"Sometimes I get so scared of what I can't understand, but here I am, next to you / The sky's more blue in Malibu, " she sweetly croons. "Malibu" see the long-haired Cyrus dancing and being free in various lovely landscapes. "We're good - I love you.' And I hope you can say you love me back". The mid-tempo ballad features the lines: "Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long?" The 24-year-old singer unveiled the cover art for the song on Instagram Wednesday (May 10), giving her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth a photo cred shout out.
