Miley Cyrus has announced new music for patient fans, and it looks like there may be some shade being thrown in the direction of one of her famous exes.
The 30-year-old Malibu singer made the announcement on her Instagram page, revealing her next single Flowers would be released on January 13.
Fans were quick to notice some significance with Cyrus’ chosen release date – it’s her ex Liam Hemsworth‘s birthday.

Cyrus and Hemsworth famously dated on and off for 10 years after meeting in 2009 on the set of the Nicholas Sparks novel-turned-film The Last Song.
The pair played young love interests and quickly fell in love themselves. They got engaged in 2012 but broke up in the following year. They later rekindled their relationship in 2015 and got married in December 2018.
Just a few months later, in August 2019, Cyrus and Hemsworth officially split.
In her announcement post, Cyrus shared the news with multiple short clips that also played excerpts from the new song.
A black screen that appeared during the clip read, “New year, new Miley, new single. Flowers. January 13.”
One clip showed Cyrus from afar, first stripping down to her bikini and then sauntering off in a park. Another clip showed the singer looking stunning in a gold cut-out dress.
In the video, she can be heard singing the lyrics, “I can love me better than you can.”
In another section, the singer is heard chanting the words, “I can love me better.”
From the looks of it, Flowers could be another ‘revenge’ single from Cyrus.
Cyrus last released music in 2020, with her rock-infused pop album Plastic Hearts.

Following her breakup from Hemsworth, Cyrus has been linked to Lilly rock band drummer Maxx Morando since 2021.
The pair are reportedly still dating, though they keep their relationship very much on the down-low.

Hemsworth, on the other hand, is dating model Gabriella Brooks.
The pair also notoriously keep a very private relationship, to the point many had assumed they’d called it quits after meeting in December 2019.
They made their belated red carpet debut in November 2022 at the Sydney premiere of Hemsworth’s new film Poker Face, which he stars in alongside Russell Crowe.
