Cyrus said she released the uplifting single “in celebration of [Pride Month] and the desperate cry for more love in this world.”
“Inspired” keeps with the gentle, country-tinged vibe of “Malibu,” as Cyrus sings, “Pull the handle on the door that opens up to change / I know that sounds so strange / ‘Cause you’ve always felt so small, but know you aren’t at all / And I hope you feel inspired.”
The strings-laden track also finds Cyrus getting nostalgic about her childhood and pondering the future. “Death is life, it’s not a curse / Reminds us of time and what it’s worth,” she sings.
Both “Inspired” and “Malibu” are expected to appear on Cyrus’ new LP, the stripped-down follow-up to her glitterbomb Dead Petz album.
