Miley Cyrus and Stevie Nicks join forces in new mash-up ‘Edge of Midnight’
Miley Cyrus has ticked yet another fete off her bucket list as she joins forces with Fleetwood Mac‘s Stevie Nicks for a mash-up of her monster hit ‘Midnight Sky’ with Nicks’ iconic ‘Edge of Seventeen’.
The dream collaboration from the pair comes in the wake of when Cyrus sampled the legendary track from the Fleetwood Mac singer on ‘Midnight Sky’, which she released back in August. The remix sees Cyrus delivering the track’s verse before Nicks joins her for an emphatic chorus – which heavily samples her own offering. ‘Midnight Sky’ is the lead single taken from her upcoming seventh record Plastic Hearts, which is finally complete and has been given an official release date of November 27th.
Discussing the collaboration earlier this year, Cyrus explained how she approached Nicks to allow her to give it a new lease of life on ‘Midnight Sky’ — which the Fleetwood Mac clearly enjoyed. “I sent her the song and I said, ‘I have an alternate melody if you don’t want me to kind of like pay tribute to you and your greatness and how much you’ve inspired me,’ And she said, ‘You can borrow from me anytime.’” Miley recalled fondly.
Cyrus recently officially announced details of her seventh album, Plastic Hearts will include 12 original tracks in total as well as a cover of Blondie’s ‘Heart of Glass’ and The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’. It features a pink-and-black album cover that was shot by legendary rock ‘n’ roll photographer Mick Rock, a creative who has previously teamed up with the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop and many more leading lights of music.
“Just when I thought this body of work was finished, it was all erased,” Cyrus wrote of the album on social media when discussing her new work. “Including most of the music’s relevance. Because everything had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favour and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”
