“Used To Be Young” was written by Miley alongside Aldae, and Michael Pollack, while Pollack (Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato) and Shawn Everett (Adele, SZA, John Legend) handled its production.

Commenting on the song, Miley stated: “These lyrics were written almost 2 years ago at the beginning of my [Endless Summer Vacation]. It was at a time I felt misunderstood. I have spent the last 18 months painting a sonic picture of my perspective to share with you. The time has arrived to release a song that I could perfect forever. Although my work is done, this song will continue to write itself everyday. The fact it remains unfinished is a part of its beauty. That is my life at this moment… unfinished yet complete.”

The new single was released just before the tenth anniversary of Miley Cyrus’ iconic album “Bangerz”. The album gave us unforgettable Miley hits like “We Can’t Stop”, “Wrecking Ball” and “Adore You”. To celebrate the anniversary, “Bangerz” is being released on vinyl in a limited anniversary edition.

Additionally, an accompanying official music video to “Used To Be Young” had its premiere upon the song’s release, directed by Jacob Bixenman and Brendan Walter, the men behind the creative direction of her latest project and its music videos.
