Miley Cyrus pays tribute to Elvis Presley in video for ‘Younger Now’
Miley Cyrus’ new single “Younger Now”, taken from her upcoming sixth studio album of the same name was released today (Aug 18) by RCA Records as a third single from the record. An accompanying music video was released too, and it’s a tribute to Elvis Presley, who died 40 years ago this week.
“Younger Now” follows early singles “Malibu” and “Inspired,” it was written by Cyrus and Oren Yoel, and produced by Yoel. The video for the song was directed by Diane Martel, co- directed by the singer and choreographed by Michael Rooney.
The title track seems to deal with her transition away from her previous aesthetic. “Even though it’s not who I am, I’m not afraid of who I used to be” she sings, “Change is a thing you can count on, I feel so much younger now” (read the lyrics here)
The music video features Miley singing to a puppet, a gaggle of kids dressed up as mimes, and Cyrus riding a Gravitron-like amusement park attraction. It ends with a choreographed dance. Watch the clip below.
