Well just when we thought we couldn’t get anymore emotional about the Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth split, Miley goes and drops a surprise new track all about it.

It was rumoured that this song about their split might be coming a couple of days ago when Miley posted a selfie of herself in the recording studio and today, without much warning, she released the track titled ‘Slide Away’.

And while she’s made no real reference to the song being about Liam and the end of their marriage, the lyrics seem to speak for themselves.

Slide Away is a slow, soulful track that appears to talk about letting go.

“Once upon a time it was paradise, once upon a time I was paralysed / I think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights / But it’s time to let it go,” Miley sings.

“Once upon a time it was made for us, woke up one day and it turned to dust,” Cyrus continues. “Baby, we were found, but now we’re lost / So it’s time to let it go.”

Miley goes on to make what we think could be a reference to the devastating time her and Liam went through when their house burnt down in the California wildfires.

She also appears to make a reference to drugs and alcohol, which are also used in the picture released with the song on her Instagram page.

“I want my house in the hills / don’t want the whisky and pills / I don’t give up easily but I don’t think I’m down.”

“Move on, we’re not 17 / I’m not who I used to be,” Cyrus adds. “You said that everything changed / You’re right I’m grown now.”

Miley and Liam announced that they had split after only seven months of marriage on Sunday after a rep for Miley released a statement.


“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” the rep said in a statement.

“Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

Just hours before hand, Miley had been photographed kissing Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter while on holidays in Italy.

Liam has also spoken out about the breakup on Instagram wishing Miley all the best and asking for privacy during this time.
