Miley Cyrus has released her new single "Used To Be Young" and its accompanying music video.
In a statement, the singer said the new track "is about honoring who we've been, loving who we are and celebrating who we will become."
The understated but emotional video shows a teary-eyed Cyrus wearing a Mickey Mouse T-shirt under a red sequined bodysuit, singing about how she's grown.
"I feel proud when reflecting on my past and optimistic when thinking about the future," Cyrus' statement continued. "I am grateful to my loyal fans who make my dreams a reality daily. I am sincerely thankful for the stability of your steadfast support. This song is for you."
"I know I used to be crazy / I know I used to be fun / You say I used to be wild / but I say I used to be young / You tell me time has done changed me / That's fine I've had a good run / I know I used to be crazy / That's cause I used to be young," Cyrus sings in the chorus.
Cyrus also shared an additional statement on the emotional music video.
"It's super emotional because I am kind of a mini-me of my mom and I could see her inside of the camera by using a technology where I could livestream with my mom from inside of the camera," she explained. "So, we could see each other and as she was dancing it just made me cry, it made me laugh, it brought up so many real emotions and I think it's really letting people into true emotion, which I don't feel we get to see very much these days."
Cyrus' TV special event "Endless Summer Vacation: Continued (Backyard Sessions)" is also available to stream on Hulu.
