Mark Ronson is known for working with big voiced female artists, such as Lady Gaga on Joanne and A Star Is Born to Dua Lipa on Silk City’s “Electricity” to Amy Winehouse on her breakthrough Back to Black album. Ronson just released his latest single with Miley Cyrus, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart.”
This is Cyrus’ first music since 2017 Younger Now album and the first track under Ronson’s name since 2015 album Uptown Special, which included unstoppable 2016 Grammy record of the Year “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars.
The new song pays homage to Cyrus’ Nashville roots, with her twangy vocals front and center on her own disco “Jolene.” In the accompanying video, Cyrus leads cops on a high speed chase through the city, along streets lined with Smilers (Miley’s fan base) holding signs saying “We Are Miley,” as well as writing “Miley for President” up and down their arms.
In an interview that Ronson did with BBC earlier this week, he said that his upcoming album, which includes “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” will be full of “sad bangers.” “It doesn’t always have to be depressing,” he said. “I tried doing some other music, whatever I could do not to relive ‘Uptown Funk,’ but the only stuff that started to stick was the stuff that moved me and made me feel melancholy.”
