Miley Cyrus Rolls Out Break-Up Anthem “Week Without You”
Miley Cyrus is hoping to revive the Younger Now era with a perky break-up anthem called “Week Without You.” A country-tinged ditty about her brief split with Liam Hemsworth, the song is pleasant enough but ultimately forgettable. “If I spent a week without you, bet you’d wonder what I do,” she begins the song over a throbbing guitar line. “I think that I’d start going out, get caught kissing other dudes.” From there, she outlines how much better single life would be.
However, there’s a twist. “You know I’d miss you, baby,” Miley coos on the outro. All’s well that ends well, I guess. While I admire the 25-year-old’s decision to write the album herself, it has resulted in a very obvious lack of singles. It might make more sense as a whole, but this is starting to sound like a passion project she made with only her future husband in mind. Again, that’s fair enough. It just makes for a fairly inaccessible era. Hopefully there’s another “Younger Now” or “Malibu” on the album somewhere.
