Miley Cyrus has unveiled an emotionally charged visual for her power ballad “Slide Away.”

The video opens with Cyrus underwater in a slinky gold dress and matching accessories as she processes moving on in the wake of her split with husband Liam Hemsworth.

“Once upon a time, it was paradise/ Once upon a time, I was paralyzed/ Think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights/ But it’s time to let it go,” Miley sings as she wanders through a raucous house party looking dazed and mournful.

Several scenes from the new video echo those from the clip for Miley’s 2012 No. 2 hit “We Can’t Stop” – from the hard-partying extras to the shots of the sun-drenched star looking out from the edge of the pool – except this time, she’s fully detached from the revelry happening around her. 

“Slide Away” was apparently inspired by Miley’s breakup with Hemsworth. After dating on and off for 10 years, they tied the knot in December of 2018, but announced their split last month. Hemsworth subsequently filed for divorce. There were rumors that his partying was one of the factors behind their breakup, but he’s denied that.
