Released on April 8, ‘I Burned LA Down’ comes with a cinematic music video inspired by the end of a relationship and the threat of climate change. It sees Cyrus riding on a horse while a barn is set ablaze, set against her emotional country-tinged tale of heartbreak.
Watch the music video for ‘I Burned LA Down’ below.
Cyrus said of the track via a press statement: “All this internal, emotional pain I was feeling was intertwined with the anxiety around this out-of-control fire and climate change in general. 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.”
‘I Burned LA Down’ is the first preview of Cyrus’ forthcoming debut album, ‘The Hardest Part’. The album is scheduled for release on July 15 via Columbia Records. Its tracklist has yet to be made available.
Prior to ‘I Burned LA Down’, Cyrus released the collaborative EP ‘People Don’t Change’ with P.J. Harding in April 2021. The EP garnered a four-star review from NME, reviewer Rhian Daly calling it “a gorgeous leap forward in the youngest Cyrus’ ever-evolving story”.
