Cody Simpson Announces Miley Cyrus-Dedicated Single “Golden Thing”
Who said romance was dead? Cody Simpson is releasing a new single called “Golden Thing” on Friday (October 18), which is inspired by his budding romance with Miley Cyrus. The Aussie singer/songwriter serenaded Miley with the song while she was recovering from tonsillitis surgery and the pop star insisted that he release it. “She was like, ‘If you don’t put this shit out, I’m putting it out on your behalf for you. I’m getting your Spotify login and doing this shit myself,'” Cody told People magazine.
Miley is even helping promote the song. She appears on the cover (below) and posted some lyrics on Instagram. “Crystal dream, Cali queen,” the “Mother’s Daughter” hitmaker shared. “Radiant hand, vibrant sand. I’m shy, it’s a golden thing she’s got.” After leaning hard into surf rock on side-project Cody Simpson And The Tide (their Wave One EP is seriously underrated), it will be interesting to see if “Golden Thing” is a change of pace. In any case, he warned fans that the song isn’t indicative of his long-awaited 4th LP.
