On March 3rd, Miley Cyrus announced in a press release obtained by Page Six that she has partnered with Disney again, but this time around, for a concert special. The singer revealed she’ll be performing her new hit single “Flowers,” plus seven new songs from her upcoming studio album, “Endless Summer Vacation.”
Cyrus also shared that she’ll be performing several of her previous hits and a new collaboration with Rufus Wainwright. The concert will also be the next installment in Cyrus’ “Backyard Sessions,” and premieres on Disney+ on March 10th.
That same day, the former child star will release the new album, which would be her eighth studio album. “Endless Summer Vacation” is the follow-up to Cyrus’s “Plastic Hearts,” which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 albums charts and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart.
Miley Cyrus Started ‘Backyard Sessions’ In 2012
Cyrus started “Backyard Sessions” back in 2012 after she shared videos on social media of herself singing covers of multiple popular songs. These songs included the famous “Jolene” by Cyrus’s godmother, Dolly Parton.
She posted the next installment in 2015, performing covers of “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House and “Happy Together” by The Turtles. The next edition was in 2020, featuring performances of “Just Breathe” by Pearl Ham and “Gimme More” by Britney Spears.
“Flowers,” which is the lead track of the incoming concert special, has done exceptionally well on music charts since its release. The song has ranked No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Official U.K. Singles Charts for six consecutive weeks.
She Rose To Fame On Disney
Cyrus collaborating with Disney is exciting news because it’s been almost two decades since she left the famous studio. The “Angels Like You” singer first rose to fame while playing the role of Hannah Montana on the same-titled show.
In the beloved show, Hannah was a teenage pop star who lived a double life as that of an average girl named Miley Stewart. The sitcom aired on Disney from 2006 until 2011 and was so successful it spawned multiple hit songs and albums, concerts and tours, and even a feature film.
However, Cyrus eventually left the show, striking out on her own to release hits like “Party in the USA,” “Can’t Be Tamed,” “We Can’t Stop,” and “Wrecking Ball.” After leaving Disney, however, the former child star has featured in only a few films, like “The Last Song” and “LOL.”

In March 2021, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of “Hannah Montana,” Cyrus wrote an open letter to her iconic character. The letter was posted to her social media, and in it, she spoke about her relationship with Hannah and how the show changed her life.
The 30-year-old singer wrote, “We had an equal exchange in which you provided a superlative amount of fame in return for the anonymity I could gift to you. But a lot has changed since then. You were like a rocket that flew me to the moon + never brought me back down. … You + I have been through it all together my friend.”
The singer wrapped up the message by saying Hannah will always have her “love and utmost gratitude.” Miley Cyrus also said she’s forever indebted to the character and everyone who supported and believed in her dreams.
