Noah Cyrus gives us a little taste of her upcoming debut album ‘The Hardest Part’ with a new single ‘I Burned LA Down’
The new release is the first single taken from this stellar body of work by the 22-year-old Nashville-born, Los Angeles-based songwriter. Light years beyond anything she’s released previously, this new chapter will undoubtedly place Noah Cyrusfirmly in the upper echelon of contemporary singer-songwriters.
Noah says: “Living in California, you’re constantly living with this dread of wildfire season. At the time, I was reeling from my breakup, and Caldor was dominating the news. All this internal, emotional pain I was feeling was intertwined with the anxiety around this out-of-control fire and climate change in general.” She continues, “The song took shape around the idea that the only way my ex could comprehend the scale of my emotions was if I became this agent of chaos and set the entire city on fire. That idea of your internal struggle manifesting itself in the real world and affecting your surroundings is a big theme of the record, and that song feels so much bigger than anything I’ve written before. It’s the perfect introduction to the album.”
With the release of ‘I Burned LA Down,’ comes a breath-taking and cinematic official music video, directed by Actual Objects and inspired by the art-house films she so loves.
Her undeniable songwriting skills were truly showcased in 2020’s The End of Everything EP which yielded the triple-platinum“July” and RIAA certified GOLD release “Lonely.”
